A man collapsed in the chair with a sensory overload from a myriad of conversations that now merge into one. He tries to sift what was important from what was frivolous, remembering the good and reinventing the bad.

The unexpected appearance of his alter ego initiates a dialogue both intense and absurd, truths, lies and dreams all expressed through movement and a somewhat rebellious puppet.

Thomas Noone is a choreographer creating contemporary dance pieces with a signature physical and gestural style. He works with his own Barcelona based company founded in 2001 residing in the SAT! theatre as well as creating as a freelance guest choreographer internationally. As an independent guest choreographer at the international level, he has collaborated with many contemporary ballet ensembles (Norrdans Sweden, Ballet du Rhin France, Munster Tanzteater Germany, National Ballet Chile, etc.) He is also artistic director of the Dansat! festival in the SAT! since 2006 and organises activities including international collaborations (Grec, Aerowaves), inclusive dance initiatives, and actions focused on building support for local dance companies. In 2011 he was awarded Barcelona's city prize for Dance.
