Can a performance exist in space only? Can a performance exist only in time? In a series of performances called Six Saints Ellen Friis examines the concept of time from the point of view of six Danish scientists.
At Bora Bora she’ll be working with Tycho Brahe, that was living in a feudal world without clocks as measure for what to do when. And H. C. Ørsted that perceived energy and change as the true nature of the world. The two sages are translated into two simultaneous performances; one only persists in time, the other only in space. Both are based upon a dance performance that only Ellen has seen. IT was made by DON*GNU for this special occation and no one will ever see it but her.
The performances are shown simultaneously an hour before and after the other show of the evening.
