May You Live In Interesting TimeS | 2005

In this scenic exploration, Christian Ubl mixes several performing arts disciplines. His work exudes a physical, permeable climate, an unidentifiable temporal texture. The sequencing of the performance leads the spectator along a pathway between different space-times, progressively assuming an immediate form.

A red line cuts through the space to find its way out, a metronome body appears, taking possession of this space where a train of real and virtual images gradually feeds the movement. Once upon a time, there was the body, the sound, the image, but here, little by little, everything becomes matter for listening and communicating. Together, before the spectator’s eyes, they merge into a unique environment, an eternal space that challenges our ideas of the passage of time.
