The Timestealers is an immersive performance for 10 audience members sat around a table. One part time management training, two parts sensory scintillation with an extra shot of ridiculous, you will plug into provided headphones and enter another world. This performance challenges our relationship to time and creates an intimate encounter with sound, physicality and silver spandex. It is inspired by cartoons, sci-fi, 80’s synth pop, ASMR videos and the story of Momo by Michael Ende.
We presented two showings of The Timestealers at the Queen’s Head pub, Holborn, London in July 2016. We wanted to find a venue that makes the show accesible and we succeeded in attracting a diverse audience.
Performed and devised by: Anna Clock, Georgina Thomas, Veronika Szabo
“The show is challenging our preconceptions that time exists sequentally. It is about how time goes in our head and in the material and rises the question who controls it.”
Lauren Tata, Scenographer, Assistant Designer on, The Encounter by Complicité and Simon McBurney
“I loved the playfulness, audience involvement and the idea of wasting time. An interesting performance about perceiving the present through an intimate and inmediate fruition of sounds. The creatures were hilarious, suitably ludicrous!” Lee Campbell, performance artist, lecturer, at Central Saint Martins,London and Royal Central School of Speech and Drama
“I enjoyed the crazy, grotesque dances, silver spandex, the general space of absurdity/ackward creatures. Did not realise you had squirrels everywhere.” Chris Rowland, artist
