Picture1

About the show

Timeless is about the passing of time and the fear that we as humanity are literally running out of it. Joli Vyann use their unique and dynamic style of dance, circus and theatre on a 7m high rotating hourglass, to tell the story of civilisation as we know it and its fragile relationship with time and nature. The performance moves through a narrative of climate change, its consequences and the larger question of how humanity copes with the precarious balance that could at any point tip into chaos. 4 Performers dance, leap, gracefully balance and throw themselves with acrobatic prowess around, on and inside the rotating hourglass. This is a dare devil yet poignantly sensitive representation of the ambiguous nature of time and the threat of irreversibility in relation to climate change.
