“The present contains nothing more than the past, and what is found in the effect was already in the cause."
A collaborative work conceived by Alice Tatge, 3:00 is a 30 minute site-responsive piece that combines dance, music and video installation. The work investigates the interaction of these three art forms and the points at which they come together into coherent coincidence or else rupture and fragment. The piece engages with different temporalities - loops and traces, past, present and future, forward and in reverse - ultimately building towards a cohesive overarching narrative: a voyage through a series of thought associations, visual imprints, sound and movement traces in an all-immersive environment.
Choreographed by Alice Tatge, video installation by Alessandro Librio, live music by Alessandro Librio, Angelo di Mino.
