A lecture-performance on sensing time, especially in performance contexts, based on subjective facts.
The lecture is a reflection on my experience with time from the perspective both of a performer and of a performance recipient.
I read my text sitting on a chair. I use gestures and projections of drawings to illustrate the content.
Quote from the introduction:
"I will report on the way I sense time both as a performer and as a performance recipient, and I will assume that my sensing of time is not unlike yours. […]
I am going to talk about several different times, about time-modes, time-types, time-beings, time-properties, as if I knew all about the superior dimension, Time. I will split time into pieces and sort them, I will fit those into moulds or give them faces, personify them and - if I succeed - I will give them appropriate names."
