This Moment Now
Performance maker Sylvia Rimat sets out to playfully explore how we perceive time, as individuals, as audiences in a performance and on a wider scale, considering various concepts of time. A drummer, a stage manager and a secret guest become the protagonists of the show, which utilises rhythm, dance, video and skype calls. A woman in her nineties dances to the camera, a young girl of eight talks about being fast at doing the splits and cups of tea help the audience to overcome a pause.
Inspired by conversations with specialists from mathematics/ physics, philosophy and people of different ages.
