We consider the closed string moving in a weakly curved background and its totally T-dualized background. Using T-duality transformation laws, we find the structure of the Poisson brackets in the T-dual space corresponding to the fundamental Poisson brackets in the original theory. From this structure we see that the commutative original theory is equivalent to the non-commutative T-dual theory, whose Poisson brackets are proportional to the background fluxes times winding and momentum numbers. The non-commutative theory of the present article is more nongeometrical than T-folds and in the case of three space-time dimensions corresponds to the nongeometric space-time with -flux.
