Nobody at Storyhouse, Chester 15 June 2022 Tickets from £17.00 — Book now

A thrilling dance-circus show, Motionhouse’s Nobody explores the tension between our inner lives and how we make sense of the world around us. This intoxicating and spellbinding dance show visits Storyhouse this June – so if you haven’t seen this spectacular performance on tour before, you’ve got another chance to catch it.

Using illusion-like digital projections and a shape-shifting set, the world on stage transforms right before your eyes.

Brimming with visual magic, seven dancers move around the stage on a journey of self-discovery. With spectacular strength and elegance, the ensemble finds courage and support in one another. Meanwhile, a group of curious crows watch and question every move they make – the birds representing the restrictive, inner part of themselves that they must resist.

Using illusion-like digital projections and a shape-shifting set, the world on stage transforms right before your eyes. Nothing appears quite as it seems – as the performers navigate their ever-changing reality and the world pulls apart around them. Building on Motionhouse Artistic Director Kevin Finnan’s previous examination of the human condition and our place in the world, Nobody seeks to expose the contrast between our inner world and how we present ourselves to others. The director makes no departure from the fact that the Covid pandemic has had a huge influence on this piece of work.
