»minute papillon« is a piece about time. time is inevitable and hence linked to every existence. in the age of an exhausted society, we are drifters, surfing the waves of life, obsessed with speed and pressed for time. the french saying »minute papillon«, which roughly translates as “hold on”, expresses a longing for a lightness of being, the search for happiness and the ephemeral state of the human cycle.

the stories before, in-between and after, the desire for everything to remain as it is or for everything to change, is embodied by the dancers – like a river and its shores, a foundation and its load. above them, like chronos, a man ceaselessly shovels earth off a tower, below them patches of growing grass. in »minute papillon«, passages emerge layer upon layer between the flow and endlessness of time, perspectives on its ambiguous attribute: magic and relentlessness, humanity and demerit, irreality and inescapability.
