Production Details / Press Releases
Humans are creatures of habit. We form routines and rituals to mark the passage of time, ascribing meaning to their units. How we pass a second, a minute, an hour and year is embedded with socio-cultural expectations that we have absorbed since birth. Rationally we are familiar with concepts of quantum Physics, deep time and the non-existence of present, but in our lived experience, these notions remain distant. What if the rhythm of our systems is disrupted? Markers of time lose their meaning: schedules are in flux, time subjectively stretches and our perception is tested. In her solo performance “No such thing as present”, Sofia Karagiorgou stages her own version of reality that is both recogniseable and alien, near and far away. She embodies experiences and observations to what happens to creative bodies when habitual time and space is disrupted. How do we measure the immeasurable?
