Live performances can lead to shared emotional and somatic experiences. What are the implications, if politics is understood as a form of public performance? At what point do our bodies make decisions on our behalf, bypassing what we think we believe, revealing more suppressed values? And if live performance can connect us in such fundamental ways, can it also nurture our capacity to respond creatively to political extremism? The time it takes me to get to you is an immersive, transdisciplinary work being developed in Virtual Reality. It is a response to the marked, global rise of fascism.
A test/prototype excerpt of The time it takes me to get to you will be accessible through Rumble Theatre's website during the 2020 Tremors festival.
