IT’S TIME (2017)

“It’s time” is a piece for stage with three dancers and live musicians investigating, interrogating and manipulating the subjective experience of the passage of time. It proposes a break from our “linear”, chronometric life – a moment in the theatre to explore the sound and motion of diluted, vertical time.

Group LaBolsa & Thomas Hauert



The Measure of Disorder is a dance piece that puts onstage a complex organism, which constantly reorganizes and reinvents itself, being fed by the individual initia- tives and by the different degrees of mutual affecta- tion.

Via the media of improvisation,our aim is to find a common landscape between the sound and the movement without assimilating, at the same time, the forms with which each media is expressed. The autonomy and the coexistence of two per- sons, in in their idio- rythmical attitude, was always a social contradiction and constitu- tes our major reflection. Dance and music cannot fuse and everything is based upon their physical promiscuity which is the only common reference.
