In the lives of humans, perception of time is a highly subjective matter. For people living in big cities this subjectivity is defined by many factors, not just personality and culture. As a living thing itself, a city creates different conditions, situations and events that make time pass slowly, or at breakneck speed. Each city is a unique place which runs at its own pace – and every. human being has their own perception of time. There are no time zones and no borders, so if you are looking for the big picture in a city, it’s quite difficult to track.
Time Flows is a single-day performance that shows how different humans, with different perceptions of time, can coexist in one city. The project is designed as a four-hour show, which takes place during the day.
There are three groups of performers, each with their own special movement pattern and own speed (slow, medium and fast). Their routes through the city interconnect at specific points, including squares in the Old City, and to intensify their visibility, each group wears clothes of a specific colour.
At the end of the performance, the three groups meet at the Prague Exhibition Grounds on the Plaza, where they unite in a collective movement (lasting 15 minutes) before disappearing into the city, like a mirage dissolving into the sands of the urban desert.
