performance project

Time flies when you are stressed out, or when you are having fun. It slows to a crawl in moments of extreme crisis, or boredom. We relive our traumas over and over again, we replay an embarrassing moment from the day as we try to fall asleep. Our subjective experience of time is not, linear; never has been, never will be. Our fantasies project us into the future, our daily routines loop back on themselves. As time and space are further distorted by our digital lives, do out bodies root us in the present or travel with us through time. In this performance project, a select group will work with Jos baker to explore these ideas physically and choreographically. Looking at our relationship with time and how our experience of time effects our relationships we have; this 2 week collaborative process will culminate in a performance at the end of the process.
