In André Uerbas‘ choreography, delicate threads are gradually set on fire one after the other and sometimes simultaneously, creating a space in slow motion constantly changing and fading. The strength of the burning threads unfolds in the darkness. In a time of perpetual wars between the present and future, the tempo decelerates, becoming quiet and calm. »Burn Time« acknowledges the moments and dedicates itself to the here and now. The quietness of the room, the slow rising of the points of light reminiscent of the hovering of fireflies and the gentle movements of the performers slow the perception of time.

- Through a 1 day workshop (4 hours), local participants will be invited to take part in the rehearsals and performance.

-Who is it for?
Interested in general (without professional experience) and Art Students

- The installation of threads will be designed specifically for each space/venue according to a previous existent core structure of “Burn Time”. In order to do that, I will have a working period of around 7 days.

- The duration of the performance varies between 60 and 75 minutes.

- The workshop can be held in English, German, Portuguese or Spanish.

- "Burn Time" was conceived as a 2 parts piece. One part was developed for Museums and the other part for Theatre spaces.
