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.

The playful, philosophical, poetic exploration of time that unfolded was a beautifully considered and engaging piece that opened out in many different directions.
Exeunt Magazine
Time is the subject but Rimat’s intelligent stagecraft makes it the unassuming star.
Writing About Dance
A charmingly intellectual but resolutely playful exploration of space time and how we experience it in the here and now.
Cheryl Pierce, Independent Producer
So many things that made me think about the passing of time and being young and being what you hope is the middle of your life. It’s both happy and funny and sad in a way.
Audience member
A thought provoking, toe tapping, smashing good show.
