ONON by Clément Layes / Public in Private ONON looks at the walls we live in and the rules we live by ONON builds an allegory of our time ONON is half human, half mechanical ONON explores the line between the stability of structures and the fragility of movement. ONON cuts movement into fragments ONON seeks to better understand the (inter)dependence between the human body and anonymous systems. ONON is a machine ONON is a mobile labyrinth. In ONON human and non-human agents create a multi-rhythmic performance reminiscent of Fernand Légers Ballet Méchanique. In ONON things move. In recent years, Clément Layes has been working with rhythm as a fundamental element for the operation of theater and dance. In the group performance The Eternal Return (2017), rhythm was used to explore the liminal spaces that are produced by our daily actions. In The Emergency Artist (2018), rhythm served as a break, as an element that abbreviates, interrupts and displaces the temporal structures of our existence, and in doing so, suspends these actions. ONON is the third performance in this series. choreography Clément Layes performance Asaf Aharonson, Nir Vidan, Cécile Bally stage Jonas Maria Droste, Clément Layes light Ruth Waldeyer sound Steve Heather costume Malena Modéer video Christopher Hewitt dramaturgy Jonas Rutgeerts international communication Inge Koks press and production björn & björn production Public in Private / Clément Layes coproduction Platform 0090 funded by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe and NPN Germany supported by SOPHIENSÆLE Berlin, BUDA Kortrijk, STUK, Leuven and wpZimmer, Antwerp.
