A new performance work by artist Hannah Lees that uses an Ancient Greek water clock method for measuring time.


Lees will create outflow water clocks where containers are filled with water, then slowly drained away whilst readings are made (6.4 litres of water equates to roughly six minutes). The readings come from a script created by Lees that uses the scene and character descriptions from the original Star Wars trilogy, lines from Plato’s Allegory of the Cave from The Republic and descriptions of Mary of Egypt. It will be a classical and jovial coming together at the end of an intensive residency at Kingsgate Project Space.
