Comic gestual duet
They’re here. Mister and Madam Nobody, with nothing. A simple scenic design.
They always make their best, to fail, better. The greatness of everything to point out the smallness of nothing.
He’s tall, half way between Peter Crouch and M. Bean, with good intentions. She’s small, full of energy and bitterness, but all of this is above her. They’re close with each other and with the audience.
An absurd gestual world: nothing’s there, nothing is there, everything’s there.
A show where they only communicate with their bodies, where they move without dancing, a show where uninteresting becomes interesting.
At the start, everything is just about normal. Then it becomes weird. In the end, it’s just a mess.
A simple world. Straight forward, light and comical universe.
