B.O.B.* > Synopsis > Paris

In B.O.B.* (Body O Body), Dick Wong and two accomplices ( Benoit Lachambre and Frederic Seguette) work with distorting mirrors. One moves, the other describes, the third, without looking at the original, gives his interpretation of what the second one is describing. They all take their turns in the role of creator, passer and interpreter. The aim of the game is not only to double up laughing, but also to provoke thought on how we see the culture of others, what we imagine the other is imagining, etc. From uncertainties to comical misunderstanding emerges a common gestual cultural, the intelligence of the body.
