After Brave New World (2016) and The Tempest (2017), Pan Pan’s Artistic Directors, Aedín Cosgrove and Gavin Quinn once again collaborate with Theater Bonn on Nō Nō Nō. Together with the German ensemble, they develop a new project that reflects upon the bizarre charms and bitter abysses of our globalised consumer society.
Shortly before the opening of the new Nō Nō Nō supermarket, store manager Olivia has set high goals: to be the ultimate consumer paradise for the customer, marked out by the systematically conditioned friendliness of its employees. But they have yet to be trained – a task that should not be underestimated, especially not when the big day of opening is looming.
In an ode to our lost life, Nō Nō Nō questions the philosophy of the American Dream and goes on the search for the future in a world that is threatened with loud absurdity.
