The starting point of the performance As time goes by is dense and philosophic, but the artistic outcome gives value to lightness and play. It sticks and stays with a sensation of troubled times and extrudes a vibration of joy.
In this performance the tragic and comic are pressed together as counterparts. While exposing multiple layers of the human body and its connectivity with its surroundings, the performance stretches towards the experience of time as a complex question.
As time goes by uses i.e. Elisabeth Grosz ́s work The Incorporeal (2017) as a philosophical reference and resonates with the concept of extramaterial by translating it into scenic composition. Through this encountering the performance-making-process values the virtual and incorporeal aspects within bodily and material becoming - a necessary co-actant in anything to become, anything to get materialized anything to variate, or to get realized.
A continuing interest of this working group is to research other-than-human performativity and design in context of contemporary performance. As time goes by celebrates a non-intellectual force of both human and other-than-human bodies by exceeding the existential dimension of a subject.
