"The Time Warp" is a an unfolding choreographic experiment where precise physicalities become the basis for exploring contact and interaction between each other and the past. We will investigate how game structures, when altered, unearthed and displaced can move from a place of familiarity and simplicity towards one of struggle and paradox.
"The Time Warp" is a dance, a song, a comic book and an astrophysical phenomenon. "The Time Warp" is a twist, a distortion and a corruption; where where we are is confused with when we are. It is a space inhabited by aliens, Einstein, Michael J. Fox, and Buddha. The Time Warp is a workshop where we explore the possibilities of time travel through movement, resistance through weightlessness and togetherness through a wormhole we call the swarm.
