The Korzo production house has been celebrating the choreographic talent that abounds in The Hague with Here We Live And Now – a title referring to the city and the times in which we live – since 2006. Dance creatives from The Hague are invited to create new work and to present this work in a full-length program. For the 2009-edition, David Middendorp presented his work 15 minutes universe.
For this work, David Middendorp sought inspiration in the phenomenon of ‘time’. All that we do, think, and make is related to time, and yet time is also intangible. To look at the person next to you, light only needs the merest fraction of a second to reach the eye. When we look at the stars we go back millions of years in time. The moment we experience as ‘now’ is actually partially in the past..
Dance performance, 15 Minute Universe. Performed at the Korzo Theatre in Den Haag.
