Wilson is a performance for three players that takes place on a tennis court. It is an invitation to enter a space where visible and hidden codes are at play. Investigating the social and physical interactions that could possibly develop on a tennis court, we open fields of imagination where pleasure, tension, affection, sex and flirt are never too far.

How do we perform sexuality and intimacy in the open? How can partners play together in a codified environment and nevertheless create a sense of freedom?

Aware of its own boundaries and limits, «Wilson» is an attempt to negotiate for more and install the audience in the secret position of the voyeur wandering in a utopic queer and inclusive cruising area, for example. Join us in this expression of desire and pleasure where the exclusive tennis club becomes wet and dirty.

All in all, «Wilson» is what you will make of it, a moment to set foot in your own fantasies.
