In 2021 ARC14 declares that, now more than ever, it is TIME-TO-DANCE.
We understand time through our bodies, we measure its flow via our movement, our memories are traces of our relation to it, we fulfil time by our presence and will and it thus becomes the kairos of the Greeks.
Indigenous cosmologies narrate and celebrate the space-time continuum in dance, via gestures and performance.
Scientists try to explain the illusion of time as the result of our inability to fathom and feel the world’s every moving detail at once.
This year, ARC14 reflects on dance from its most vital and least conceivable component: time.
A choice that amidst the pandemic directly engages with our current uncanny sense of a time both suspended and accelerated.
A choice that wishes to pull us toward a more joyful sense of life, beyond the confines of space and into the flows of time.
