ROUTINE – a documentation of real time 2017
a creation by Émilia Giudicelli, Samuel Fried and Ayla Pierrot Arendt
This 8-hour long polyphonic live-performance explores routines of performance-making and of Japanese everyday life on the verge of emergency.
Dancers, video clips, live-music sessions, techno beats and sound experiments overlay, interact and cooperate. A cook prepares meals and coffees from waste food throughout the 8 hours. A transport band carries food and waste that accumulates throughout the shared time and measures this experience with the poetics of recycling and cooperation.
8 hours of work. 8 hours of leisure time. 8 hours of imagining together.
There is time for a common meal, boredom, interest, naps, chats, interaction and observation. We come together to use our individual motives of expression to create a shared imagination where we rely on each other and where we can trust that we are safe and our time together is valued.
ROUTINE is based on research of the everyday structures of Japan and reconstructs our individual ways of experiencing Japanese time during a 5-week stay in spring 2016.
