Curved Spacetimes: Where Friedrich Nietzsche Meets Virginia Woolf
What if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times moreNietzsches possibility of times arrow looping back on itself structures Logos Dance Collectives production Curved Spacetimes: Where Friedrich Nietzsche Meets Virginia Woolf, in which movement, music and the spoken word guide audience members through the eternal return, wherein they encounter Woolfs Mrs. Dalloway, who embraces the demons proposal in her love of life; London; this moment in June, seeming to offer a Nietzschean yes to life and to see beauty in that which is necessary. While dancers bodies tell spacetime how to curve and curved spacetime tells dancers bodies how to move, the multidisciplinary performance toys with our experience of the past as it is realized in memory, of the present as we hold it in attention, and of the future as it is captured by anticipation; it explores the possibility of time reversal and the way in which time seems to speed up as we age; and it offers a glimpse of what it means to embrace fate.
