The Clock

March 6 2008
POW! Mini Performance Festival
Space Gallery, San Francisco

Focusing on issues of time and sequencing. The Clock exolores the implications and challenges inherent in the complex duality of imagining a future collective environmental crisis while contending with the mundane and often trivial routine of the personal day to day. The Clock is the second performance installation in the five-part Containment Scenario series exploring the discourse around the climate crisis. Working with stage direction, choreography, structured improvisation and developed in collaboration with the ensemble, The Clock investigates the tension and disorientation resultina from being thrust at once forward in time while also firmlv anchored to the
present. The Clock is adapted from the book: Containment Scenario: DisLoInter MedTextId entCation: Horse Medicine (OBooks. 2009)
