Trip The Light Fantastic
THE MAN WHO TRAVELLED NOWHERE IN TIME – ONE MOMENT AT A TIME
About the Company
Trip The Light Fantastic is a dance company that involves dance artists, visual artists and integrates itself into the Montreal community. The company’s movement language combines contemporary, and urban styles along with structured improvisation. Trip The Light Fantastic aims to uncover the truth beneath the surface of human perception. We question and dive unto the raw brute realities of the individual psyche and social stigmas that take us away from reaching our own true liberation. Our goal is to harshly pose these questions through the language of dance and mixed media in order to inspire positive change within our audience members. The company made its debut September 2017 at Festival Quartiers Danses in Montreal Canada.
About the Piece
THE MAN WHO TRAVELLED NOWHERE IN TIME
“The Man Who Travelled Nowhere in Time” is a work based around a young man named Eytan. Eytan sees the world around him change, evolve, and grow, yet he himself never changes. His journey is a quest to understand why he never ages and dies like the people around him. What he doesn’t know is that he only exists in the dreams and unconscious minds of others. Every day he sees people arrive passing through a hallway. This hallway is a place between reality and the unconscious mind. It is only in this place that he is in the same time and space as the other people who surround him. This work questions what is real, and how we create our own reality.
ONE MOMENT AT A TIME
A look into the moments that seem eternal, and others that fly by with the blink of an eye. This solo is inspired on a piece that Trip The Light Fantastic performed in 2018. How can we control how fast or slow time passes us by? Can we control it at all? This piece explores the space in between seconds, that can seem eternal.
