The 'Soviet Truman Show' premieres in Paris

Encore takes a trip to the Paris premiere of a project featuring works from what's been called "the most insane film shoot of all time." Ten years in the making, the controversial "Dau" opens this week. Showing at the Theatre du Chatelet and the Theatre de la Ville, it takes visitors on a trip to the Soviet Union. To take part in what is something between immersive theatre and a live video game, you don't buy a ticket - you apply for a visa.


Also on the programme: a look at the delights of Paris Haute Couture week and the 2019 Michelin guide to restaurants.
