Change – Time and Dance



Momentum, continuum, the point on the timeline, stretch of time, duration, time measured by the history of dance, time as the order, the aging? Or maybe free time or the rebellion against tyranny of the clock? 

In the special frame of the Lab/Residence  – as the island idling for artists  – we invite young dance makers to reflect at how dance and performing arts respond to the question of Time in their practice.
