Artist Lina Lapelyte borrows the title of a dirty rap hit by 50 Cent for her performance-opera Candy Shop. Transforming the original hip-hop texts, 7 female singers invite the spectator to a collective meditation on power hierarchies, narrating the story about beauty, gender, and the mundane.

With: Lina Lapelyte (conception, performance), Nouria Bah, Anat Ben-David, Esmeralda Conde Ruiz, Sharon Gal and Heidi Heidelberg (performance), Federico Strate Pezdirc (video), the Chœur d'Hommes de La Villette (choir), Yuko Oshima, Sébastien Le Bon, Luigi Legendre and Olivier Miqueu (drums).
