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 theater 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 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 is activated and animated by the rhythm of the viewer's presence, through continuous movement, through anticipation, observation, and recollection.
”What we have come to realize is that it is the uncanny quality that fascinates us is the manipulation of our sense of time."
