About Time is a trilogy of performances which are a response to a research partnership between two universities. Philosophy at Warwick University and Psychology at Queens University came together to question our concepts of time. How we perceive it, how we understand it and how we exist in it.
Led by Dr Christophe Hoerl from Warwick and Dr Theresa McCormack from Queen’s, philosopher and psychologist debated some pretty dense and fascinating topics.
They were also hugely interested in how the creative sector would respond to various concepts and theories of time. They commissioned three short touring performances – from us, Echo Echo and BBeyond, and asked how theatre, dance and performance art might interpret time.
Our devised piece Now Is The Time, completed a short tour of Warwick Arts Centre, The Black Box in Belfast and Echo Echo’s studio in L/Derry in February 2019.
