Sans Objet, a piece for a robot and two actors will be performed in the UK as part of the London International Film Festival, Friday 21 to Sunday 23 January. It is part of the repertoire of  the French Compagnie 111 under the artistic direction of Aurélien Bory.

              

 

Seemingly endowed with human qualities, by turns friendly and frightening, the robot stars with acrobats, Olivier Alenda and Olivier Boyer, in this spectacular performance piece for men and machine.

If you can't make it to the London performance there is a European tour planned which includes France, Spain and Germany in the first half of the year.
