Cassandre Archambeau was born in 1986 in Paris, 11th district. Cassandre Archambeau is unique, like everybody. Like everybody, she hasn't chosen her name, nor her sex nor her time. She would like to change the world but doesn't know where she should begin... Then, in order to think more clearly, she gets on her bicycle and every night rides through the world.

Bigger than Me is an impressionist painting of our time, through the portrait of today's young lady, Cassandre Archambeau, who wonders about her place in the world, about what makes her unique, what links her to the others. In a performance both physical and verbal, she shows, on stage, the numerous dimensions of our existence, from weird comedy to tragedy. Through the geography of her own body, that she measures just in front of us, it's our daily pieces of pettiness and greatness that she explores, our longings, our quest of meaning.

Bigger than Me is a merry existential questioning about determinism and freewill, about the word freedom on a life scale. Between individual destiny and collective horizon, it's a measurement of the tension which everyone is in the grip of. It's a real slap in the face for our grimacing and anxiety-provoking time, an imaginary pact made with the spectators in order to face together the crashing and banging of the world. It's also a journey between dream and reality, an impudent word about the wonderment to be in the world, that may well be rotten.
