performance registration and 13min. video (out of a 6-hr performance) by Fanny Hagmeier, Ramaz Melashvilli & Maaki Nurmeots

Time is physical. Our experience of time depends on anchor points: night and day, ever-recurring hunger, thirst, sleep, the sub-optimum system of the striking of the clock, and the growth and decline of the body. In TIME (working title), the Schwalbe theatre collective asks the audience to ‘temporarily let go of time’. To exchange clock time for the time of experience. To take a seat, get into it, go away (to buy a Snickers), change perspective, resist, build a nest, spend the night, wake up and see something that’s totally different, or still the same.
