For The Time Being - Jochem Jurgens
For The Time Being
Winner VSCD Mimeprijs 2018

We rushed to get here, and soon we’ll hurry on further. But right now, in this space, we hold a tiny particle of time in our hand. Let’s take this precious moment, unfold it… Can we summon our powers and step into the loophole together, be who we are, so nothing else is necessary? As long as it takes? For the time being….

We are only here for a moment. Though the earth spins ever slower, our world keeps turning faster. Time is like an elusive prey.

“Once again Boukje Schweigman's physical wordless theatre is poetry without pretense, a great combination. Thoroughly thought-through yet with a playful and spontaneous exterior. What you see, hear and sometimes feel (a brush of air from a performer running past) or smell (perspiration) is actual and real, with a wonderful intensity and care of attention.”
