Tresor Malaya, who visited different places of the city, brings us to the heart of this reflection between individual and collective, in questioning the decision-making bodies and their legitimacy. That building? Who decides? And finally, what's the point? Taking a clear position for the democratic management of the city, he would by his stage act, restore public role in these engineering projects that, sometimes, escape him.

All the work of Malaya Tresor will focus on the question what's the point? The performance is to consider the community as a public instance decision and submit this question. Everyone from his point of view and the artist with him, first, gave his opinion. The question is open. Nothing indicates its scope. Each response is made after reframing the issue by the viewer in relation to their needs, aspirations, experiences, fears, etc.. The decision of the community becomes an eclectic choice that is supposed to build a sense of community. The artist who robs a leading political action defines leadership in the relevance of the questions, not answers to impose on everyone.
