STRETCH IN MUSEUMS
STRETCH AN EXPERIENCE WITH TIME IN MUSEUMS Performance combining dance, sound and visual design where the stretching (of time, sound, body and clothing) is the central element.
We intend to explore the movement of stretch and stretching under several angles within the architecture of a museum. The whole idea being questioning our relationship to the accelerated rhythms of our pop culture. Pop culture carries the socio-emotional and political events that surround us. What happens visually, physically and to sound when we “stretch” those rhythms? What effect does that have on our perception? What does it change in the way
