Fast-moving and highly physical, Nobody explores the tension between our inner lives and how we make sense of the world around us.
Packed with visual magic, the world on stage is transformed before our eyes. Digital projections and the shape-shifting set create a constantly changing environment where nothing is quite what it seems…
We follow seven characters on their journey of self-discovery to find strength and support in each other, while a group of curious crows questions their every move.
As they negotiate their ever-changing reality, the performers search for answers as the world unravels around them. Can they work together to find out who they are?
Nobody is a spellbinding and strikingly visual adventure – a highly relevant and moving show that resonates with the times we live in.
