Time Takes The Time Time Takes

GN | MC - Guy Nader | Maria Campos (LB/ES)

Lebanese-Spanish choreographer duo Guy Nader and Maria Campos stand for a highly dynamic dance idiom in which everything is constantly in flux. Indeed, their current piece “Time Takes The Time Time Takes” is a physical challenge for all five dancers, including themselves: Around the leitmotif of the pendulum, they create compelling images with their bodies, holding the viewer’s gaze to the last. Like a perpetuum mobile, the sweat-inducing choreography generates a seemingly inexorable flow of movements, which the performers repeat, accelerate and stretch without interruption. The ensemble goes on a journey through time and space, calling to mind thoughts of transience and the relative nature of time in our ever faster-moving world. The live music by Javi Mora provides the right sound setting for one hour of pure intensity.
