Shrewd and amoral, he brutally stormed onto the New York stock market in the mid-1970s. He is called JR Vansandt and is almost eleven years old. The American writer William Gaddis presents him in his experimental novel JR (1975). The Belgian actors’ collective FC Bergman has taken this satire on hypercapitalism as the starting point for their new, large scale performance on location. They are building their towering world in the former market hall on the Jan van Galenstraat. JR's kaleidoscopic world is reconstructed with live video, music and a large ensemble of actors. See how JR Vansandt and his battalion of lawyers and spin doctors wreak havoc on the American stock market. See how innocent people overreach themselves in the race for happiness.
