In Time We Trust
DYSCHRONOMETRIA explores the trust we place in our experience of time and what the sensation of the passing of time feels like in a theatrical context. The title is taken from a medical condition in which an individual cannot accurately estimate the amount of time passing, it is a distortion of the perception of time. The piece is an interrogation into an audience's interpretation of the passage of time, especially in a digital context where recorded material could be distorted and manipulated to different effect. During the pandemic lockdowns of 2020/2021, our understanding of time was challenged, some days go painfully slow and events seem to repeat themselves in a perpetual ‘Groundhog Day’.
Does time move forward or backwards?
