In "middle time" we are confronting the naive hope that a commercial commodity, or in this case, a performing arts production, can act as a cure for the restless mind.
Here, dreamy dance, crispy sounds and an invisible object are constructing an atmosphere that can be experienced as both caring and unsettling.
With an almost inhuman neutrality and seductive dominance, the performer poses some of the most urgent questions for the persistently self-optimizing human.
The performer directs the questions to both the audience and to herself. But to find the answers each one must pause
and listen to the space in between social and professional pressure.
