Title of work

It Was Time

Synopsis

"Time is nature's way to keep everything from happening at once" John Wheeler. This work came from an intense 3-week period in which the dancers and I created a short film and this live piece. 'Time' is the issue... from duration to rhythm to warping and glitching. The music is an important element. Entirely sourced from op-shops in Launceston and manipulated by the genius of Ben Walsh, the sound gave a temporal landscape for us to delve into and create this odd little drama.
