About this show

At once ominous and strangely beautiful, Aurélien Bory's Sans Objet is an acrobatic dialogue between man and machine. Situated onstage, a large object shrouded in black plastic begins to move--its robot head peering out into the audience, exuding an eerie sentience. Two men in suits appear, responding to the object (a real-life automotive prototype from the 1970s) with a language of precise, mechanized movement. Soon enough, the men and the machine move in tandem, performing a captivating ballet between soul and steel that examines where one stops and the other begins.
