THE PROGRAMME:
*19:30 - 20:30 Durational 1st performance

Ongoing – “Shifting Sands” by Matthew Goodsmith
Two performers take turns pouring sand into the hands of the other. An experience and contemplation of the passing of time, giving and receiving, loss & gain, and other polarities in a revolving cycle.

19:30 – “Towards All & Nothing (In memory of Li Yuan Chia)” by Bettina Fung
“Towards All & Nothing (In memory of Li Yuan Chia)” is a performance drawing piece, a tribute to the artists Li Yuan Chia, drawing from his life, his concept of all and nothing and the point as the origin and end of creation.

20:30 – “100 Year Calendar” by Mirei Yazawa
“100 years calendar” is a performance with Mirei and another dancer dancing in Bisoku – very slow movement it changes sense of time.
The calendar itself will also be used as a score for body movement. The piece focuses on the awareness of the linear understanding of the time, the awareness of the quality of time in nature of body and the feeling of the existence of time for others.

21:00 – “Tape Loop” by Paul Stan Nataraj & Ana Berkenhoff
Sound art performance. More details to follow

21:30 – “Time/less: a contemplative study of the nature of time” by Mara Vivas
A dance piece with 2 dance artists, inviting the audience to consider how we experience time. If the duration remains the same, what is it that changes our perception of the moment? Why does it sometimes flash by, and others crawl? As we witness the dance, can we consider time.
