Watch and play machine of the Compagnie à
Ô is the name of a unique structure created by Compagnie à with the help of Stéphane Paillard in 2003/2004.
It could be defined as an interior marquee with a frame made of wood panels.
Ô is a circular installation with a fairground atmosphere, where 23 audience members take place outside and watch what is played inside, while having their 2 feet inside.
Ô uses a panopticon principle, a machine to watch and play that Compagnie à wishes to explore in various forms, with different projects: short intimate shows, exhibitions, sound installations, workshops ...
Ô is designed to be a mobile research laboratory, a travelling playground, inviting and bringing other artists together.
