NouNous Festival: Pendulum

NouNous Festival: Pendulum

Luis Sartori do Vale and Thom Monckton

Pendulum is two aristocrats’ cavalcade of self-reinforcing idiocracies and a peculiar fascination with everything that sways, cradles or swings. Two noblemen set out on a journey of inexplicable importance. In the familiar surroundings of upper-class comfort not even stupidity stands in the way of these two and their ingenious discoveries. Slowly, it dawns on them however, that not everything is as it once was, for what is Nobility without riches, servants and reason? All the things that constantly move back and forth are the essence of restlessness! Yet, we find in these motions an intrinsic comforting, as if they remind us of an experience before consciousness. The performance aims to combine the explosiveness and action of circus with the human physical response to gentle constant movement. Not to be missed!
