In rue Simon-Crubellier 11 in Paris, the tired and visionless millionaire, Bartlebooth, dedicates his life to a project that pursues a single function: to have no function! For 10 years, he wants to train as a watercolourist, then subsequently travel for another 10 years to 500 ports and paint as many harbour views, which he would then send back to his hometown to have cut into pieces and make puzzles of 750 pieces. Over another 10 years, Bartlebooth wants to piece the puzzles back together again, only to dissolve them finally in seawater in the places where they were created. Together with the entire Kammerspiele team, in-house director Christopher Rüping will decrypt the “instructions" of the French writer and philosopher Georges Perec in research that spans several seasons and results in 11 editions. In doing so, they will fully immerse themselves in Perec’s game with numbers. The first episode begins, as the first chapter of the novel, on page 11.
