Concept & Artistic Direction
Sculptures & Sound
by ANDRÉ UERBA
Alessandro Bortolazzo, Alejandro
In André Uerbas‘ choreography, delicate threads are gradually set on fire one after the other and sometimes simultaneously, creating a space in slow motion constantly changing and fading. The strength of the burning threads unfolds in the darkness. In a time of perpetual wars between the present and future, the tempo decelerates, becoming quiet and calm. »Burn Time« acknowledges the moments and dedicates itself to the here and now. The quietness of the room, the slow rising of the points of light reminiscent of the hovering of fireflies and the gentle movements of the performers slow the perception of time.
