In Exhausted, the French director and choreographer Claude Bardouil resumes his dance and theatre-mediated search on the subjectivity and personality of those involved in a game of appearances and simulacra. Following the play on Nancy Spungen, this new show was inspired by Shannon Michelle Wisley, known under the artistic pseudonym of Savannah. During her short life ending in suicide at the age of 23, Savannah climbed to the top of the porn star ladder. She starred in over one hundred films.

Her turbulent life, the dark episodes of childhood sexual abuse and her finally being the icon of the porn world, resulted in her becoming a sexual object, with her personality succumbing to pervasive sexualization. For Bardouil, Savannah becomes an anti-heroine in which the exhaustion from the title of the show takes on multiple meanings. After her suicide, committed in glamorous style in a white Corvette, Savannah goes to heaven where she meets other icons of female erotica, other objects of desire. Here commences Bardouil's investigation and the trance-like experience of his actors and dancers.
