About Time

‘What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know’ (St Augustine)

What if time did not really pass or flow? If there was no real difference between past and future? If ‘now’ were just a matter of where you happen to be, just like ‘here’? How can we square our day-to-day experience of time with these incredible claims made by leading physicists?

Theatre, dance, psychology, and philosophy combine forces to grapple with the puzzle of time, introduced by experts Professor Christoph Hoerl (University of Warwick) and Professor Teresa McCormack (Queen’s University Belfast). In an evening of ‘time based art’ performances, artists from Big Telly Theatre Company (Portstewart), Bbeyond Performance Art (Belfast), and Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company (Derry-Londonderry) explore what it means to exist and do things in a time-bound world.

Supported through funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
