A performance by Danielle van Vree

Act of Time is a performance about the experience of time. 28 spectators are seated in a designed space, in which a two-part monologue sounds. Two performers are leading the spectators along objects of memories from the past, the present and the future.
A spatial and sensory experience about waiting, forgetting en starting again.
V I listen
M I watch
V I forget
M I forget who I am
V who I was before I had forgotten
M to start again
V to start again
M I’m wandering around
M the clock doesn’t save anything
V time to arrive
M to stay
V to wait
M to leave
