"One may be wrong even about “there being a hand here”. Only in particular circumstances is it impossible. Even in a calculation one can be wrong – only in certain circumstances one can’t.” Ludwig Wittgenstein
There is no narrative in Noon, no logic. What we witness is the mental voyage of the choreographer, questioning meaning in movement. Inspired by doubt the movement is constantly repeated , while changes occur through different lighting, through adding words or objects. How do we read these changes and what part does one's own memory play? Is it possible for us to really look at things in an open-minded way?
The performer and choreographer Youness Khoukhou studied at P.A.R.T.S. and has worked with Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Claire Croizé, Pierre Droulers and others. Following his earlier group piece, Becoming, he is now creating his first solo performance, Noon, in which he continues his research into the relationship between the body and its immediate surroundings.
