Compagnie 111 / Aurélien Bory

Sans Objet

In the 1970s it made cars. Now transplanted from assembly line to stage, an industrial robot is the unlikely hero of a remarkable futurist fantasy. Seemingly endowed with human qualities, by turns friendly and frightening, the robot stars with acrobats Olivier Alenda and Olivier Boyer in this spectacular performance piece for men and machine.

After sold-out visits to London with previous productions IJK, Plan B, More or Less Infinity and Les Sept Planches de la Ruse, director Aurélien Bory's Compagnie 111 returns with its latest show.

'Once again Aurélien Bory comes up with magic, wit and a ton of ideas. A contemporary take on Chaplin's Modern Times.' (Le Figaro, France)

'Astonishing and harmonious meeting of technology and artistry.' (La Dépêche, France)
