The filmmaker Barbara Lubich and the choreographer Anna Till dedicate their research residency to the phenomenon of time. They are concerned with the discrepancy between precise time measurement and subjective perception of time from the perspective of film and dance, moving images and movement.

How does the experience of a boat trip change the perception of time?

How do people describe their perception of time?

What role does time play in the work processes on a ship – which Foucault calls a heterotopia, i.e. an image of society that functions according to its own rules? How do we deal with time as the basis of our social order?

And finally: How can film and dance make the phenomenon of time tangible?

Anna Till and Barbara Lubich have conversations on these questions with the staff of the Sächsische Dampfschiffahrt (Saxon Steamship Company) from a distance due to the contact restrictions in the course of COVID-19. They observe the unusual standstill on the ships and on the river bank.

The research is produced by situation productions – Company für Performing Arts Dresden.
