We invite to 8 hours of transition: rituals of time and space shifting reinvent the sharing of experience. Familiarities are repetitively merged with foreign routines. 3 memories overlay, contradict and complement the performers’ expansion into the space organism; there is joy for subtle changes transforming common ground. There is a need to keep track of time. 8-hour routine. 8-hour rest. 8-hour interaction. Dance shifts the way we memorize. 8 performers remember differently. In the intersection of the shared emotions and images, we address each other in search for a documentation of real time. Deceleration becomes essential in order to realize how these 8 hours are passing.

ROUTINE is based on a research of the collective Fluoressenz (Émila Giudicelli, Samuel Fried, Ayla Pierrot Arendt) in the everyday structures of Japan. Dance, music and space-choreography reconsider artistic translation strategies for a convergence that keeps its distance to the original without differentiation. It is the parallel, incomparable co-existence that has irresistible offers to the time of each other.
