a big thank you to Stroud Rohde Pearce and Svea Öhlschläger
Time seems to easily slip out of our hands, attention pendulating between overstimulation and boredom. How might humans tackle time, expectations and boredom? And what kind of processes - emotional and physical - elude us when we avoid it?
The Picnic & The Fountains is a research on productivity, desire and boredom, and how we are together in “empty time”.
Performed at Christianshavn 2021, Skt Hans Torv 2021, Tårnby Park Performance Festival 2022
Supported by Slots-og Kulturstyrelsen, Copenhagen Municipality, Danseatelier and Forsøgstationen.
