ITS ABOUT TIME is a contemporary circus piece using mainly object manipulation. It is funded by Zirkusakademie Wien (2016) and the The Arts and Culture Division of the Federal Chancellery of Austria (2016 + 2017).

The piece deals with the individual perception of time. Artists have a great power to influence the audience’s experience of time on the stage, from the stopping of time in a moment of tension to the elasticity of time when you are enjoying yourself.

In 17th and 18th Century the precision of the gears of a clock was considered the perfect metaphor of national order. Criticized by Charlie Chaplin in Modern Times (1936), the clockwork man is considered the bedrock of a stable society and the working world. Today a flaunted lack of time / constant activity is emblematic of high achievers. The modern means of communication for constant availability and non-stop activity; today make the watch a superfluous vehicle of temporal coordination. The audience is to be made critically aware of how prevalent the lack of time is, in our society.
