NOWNOWNOW is experiment-as-performance that is exploring energy, time and consciousness.
Three performers undertake conceptual live attempts to experience the question: can we be in the now?
“People seek to be in the moment, yet through the pursuit of this, move further and further away from it. I am drawn to the paradox of this notion and how it parallels the act of performance – which is happening, both in real time between the audience and the performer, and yet is highly constructed. In this piece, the performers are not characters representing a greater humanity or society – we are ourselves, and this performance is a genuine attempt at the question: can we be in the now?” – Luke George
