Tie-Tool is an illusion, an exquisite corpse-choreography, designed and performed by Pauline Brun and Marcos Simões.

Lying on the floor, rags move and come to life, bickering, coming together and falling apart, seeming to seek their raison d’être in the suspended time of misunderstanding and unanswered questions. Borrowing its name from a tool used to tie knots in balloons, Tie-Tool is a playful exploration, at once physical, visual and plastic, of the space of freedom that opens up to us when meaning is lost to reason and all signs take flight. 

A way of playing with different ways of creating meaning, of abandoning ourselves to the weightlessness and prolific creativity of misunderstanding. What if our accidental pillow fights were rituals for generating parallel universes, where the best stories never have an ending?
