The equations of physics do not tell us which events are occurring right now -
they are like a map without a ‘you are here’ symbol.
The present moment does not exist in them,
and therefore neither does the flow of time.
An old couple float through space in a simulated Eden, digitally and physically reliving their pasts between cups of tea and gardening. Their bodies are linked to a system which filters their memories; projected within them, they slip consciously and unconsciously into the skins of their past selves - as children, young lovers and adults again. As they and the system deteriorate, transformations become more unpredictable and ROBAs reach towards a door in the darkness, a passage out of the confusion, out of time.
Using body and mask transformation, video projection and sound filters, dance-theatre company jeudi explore questions of memory and disintegration within digitized experience.
