TALES OF NO(OO)ONE

1 Watt takes us around the world to where we are now. True stories, uncivilized dancing and anti-heroes come together in an intimate ballad accompanied by an electro soundtrack and the dramatic poem “Walk about the villages” by Peter Handke.

« Tales of Noo(oo)ne » can play as a duo or a quartet

Tales of Noone (two bodies) is a duo by Sophie Borthwick and Pierre Pilatte. She tells the story of her life; he wanders into it. Together they elaborate a short autobiographical tale that culminates in an urge to dance. They create a walking piece with a carnival atmosphere. In «Tales of Noooone» (four bodies), the duo becomes a quartet, bringing new themes to the ensemble. Alexandre Théry is inspired by the references to colour and nature in Handke’s poem. Mathias Forge tells a condensed history of roundabouts.
