Are you ready for a surprising and unusual theatrical experience? At the top of the show, you receive simple, seemingly innocuous instructions. But thanks to an ingenious system of numbers, you’re rapidly plunged into the heart of a performance in which you and your companions are both the inspiration and the main protagonists. Guided from a distance by invisible game masters, a thrilling story emerges – your own!

Adapted from the original production by Alpha Charlie Kilo (Quebec), Nombre reminds us of the exquisite singularity of human interaction and the importance that a single encounter can hold in our lives. A collective and participatory experience that will bring you together with one another in a unique community.
