Rush Hour / Ceren Oran
This choreographed interaction between man and machine is based on the finding that it is impossible to determine how humans understand the notion of time and their relationship towards it. A joint analysis of the understanding, perception and the meaning of time revealed what the West presently defines it as a high-speed life in which the individual has to permanently fulfil excessive demands.
“Looking at the situation Europe‘s currently in, especially with regards to the growing nationalism, the three performers become symbols of a destructive force originating in an exclusive concentration on the self.“ (Ceren Oran)
