Four Transformations of Space and Time




What is the difference between experiencing something and imagining it? And what is the ground in-between?

‘Four Transformations of Space and Time’ is a live performance that explores these questions through a combination of immersive sound and physical movement.

The performance seeks to illustrate and ask the viewer to become aware of the complex relationships that constitute our experience:

Outer sense-impressions (movement of the performer and the sound that is generated) and the relationship to Inner projections (the expectations and ideas that the viewer — as well as performers — projects on to the performance).

To what degree does one shape the other? What is the relationship between the intention of the performer and the manifestation of the performance to the audience?

The performance moves through four phases:

i. Slow Time

ii.Mechanical Time

iii.Liquefied Space

iv. Gravity Shift.

Utilising surround sound, human motion and the venue space itself, the performance attempts to make conscious the effects of space and time on our bodies, minds and lives.
