WORLD PREMIERE 

Fast-moving and highly physical, Nobody explores the tension between our inner lives and how we make sense of the world around us.

Motionhouse’s renowned dance-circus style combines with mesmerising choreography to tell this ultimately uplifting story, full of twists and turns.

Digital projections and the shape-shifting set create an environment where nothing is quite what it seems, as you follow seven characters on their journey of self-discovery, while a group of curious crows questions their every move.

Nobody is a spellbinding and strikingly visual adventure - a highly relevant and moving show that resonates with the times we live in.

Image description: A solo dancer in pink leggings and red top is confined in a metal box-shaped frame about a metre high. The box is tilted back at 45 degrees, resting on one corner. The dancer’s arms extend behind her, towards the floor, and she gazes calmly upwards as one leg kicks upwards, out of the frame. In the background, there are life-sized photographs of houses.
