UN-ZEIT creates hypnotic images in a foggy space. The perception of time seems to fray, the just ordered movements of the group lose their linearity, individuals fall out of form and move radically; disoriented. Postures squirm under the impression of new realities and paradoxes, movements get out of shape and, in intimate moments, bodies search for reliability and support.
