TIME TAKES THE TIME TIME TAKES is a physical dynamic conversation through repetitive movement and the pendulum motif that embodies the mechanisms measuring time and space. A journey of dangling movements that burst into different encounters, evolving towards a perpetual motion. An ongoing wheel that suggests time is a continuum.
This performance was born out of admiration for the rhythm and music that movement creates. A latent and constant rhythm that marks the passage of time. Based on a simple physical exercise, the swing of a pendulum, we create a sequence of complex mechanisms that are done and undone through the synergy of five performers.
TTTTTT is a poetic and choreographic manifestation, a physical, visual, and sound exercise that explores space as a score within sound and movement. A perceptual experience of time, an eternal present rooted in materials and forms.
This show has been selected for the European platform Aerowaves.
