Cie Mossoux-Bonté

Nicole Mossoux and her mannequins tackle the complexity of human life head-on.

Imagine being invaded by a multitude of beings intent on using your body as a conduit without asking for your opinion. They seize control of different parts of your body, sneaking in between your intentions and your movements, sending out mixed messages and strange declarations...
Twin Houses  is a multiple monologue, performed by Nicole Mossoux and five articulated mannequins, locked in a tangle where it’s not entirely clear who is directing who, nor who is really in charge. Nicole Mossoux describes the experience as a “battle with her doubles": "I wanted to use them to evoke the multiplicity of the self, to embody all the contradictory impulses which inhabit us, second-guessing our every movement, squabbling incessantly. The mannequins were supposed to be my doubles, but it soon became clear that I was actually their counterpart, the balance of power was completely different".
