It's time
multidisciplinary work for dance, ensemble & electronics
2015/2017

Duration: 60'

"It's time" is a piece for stage with three dancers and live musicians investigating, interrogating and manipulating the subjective experience of the passage of time. It proposes a break from our "linear", chronometric life - a moment in the theatre to explore the sound and motion of diluted, vertical time.

With aesthetics inspired from graphic novels and their depiction of the passage of time in "fictional space”; the performers and musicians will speed up, slow down, freeze in motion and reverse their own movements, bringing into play the uncanny, dissociative elements of directionality, suspension and gravity that determine our perception of time and motion.

The meaning of the piece will be activated and animated by the rhythm of the viewer's presence, through continuous movement, through anticipation, observation and recollection. "It's time" will propose a break from our 'linear' life. A moment in the theatre to savour the sound and motion of diluted time.
