Timeless is about the passing of time and the fear that we as humanity are literally running out of it. Joli Vyann uses their unique and dynamic style of dance, circus and theatre on a 7m high rotating hourglass, to tell the story of civilisation as we know it and its fragile relationship with time and nature.

Four performers dance, leap, gracefully balance and throw themselves with acrobatic prowess around, on and inside the rotating hourglass. This is a dare devil yet poignantly sensitive representation of the ambiguous nature of time and the threat of irreversibility in relation to climate change.

Duration: 35 minutes

A performer pulls against a large metal sandtimer. Green trees are out of focus in the background.
