Lydia Schulze Heuling is a young choreographer and physicist who rejected a PhD offer in physics by the famous Max Planck Institute for her love of performance. In this new work conceived for the particular context of iDANS, she explores why and how it has been difficult to experience anything other than "linear time" despite the space-time of relativity theory. Breakfast Box makes an attempt to enquire different concepts of time utilizing artistic and scientific elements.

Time is one of the main constituting parameters in physics. Evolving methods to measure time has been of great importance throughout history. Today time is measured with atomic and worldwide-synchronized clocks. However, our linear understanding of time has been replaced only recently by the space-time dimension of relativity theory. The concept of space-time has a great impact on sciences and engineering. However, thinking and experiencing any other than linear time remains quite a task. Breakfast Box makes an attempt to enquire different concepts of time utilizing artistic and scientific elements.

This co-production is a direct result of a Jardin d'Europe Wild Card residency in Istanbul and was premiered during iDANS festival 06 on May 16, 2009.

 

Lydia Schulze Heuling is a performer and physicist. She teaches for different organizations and universities. Her research focus lies on interdisciplinary dialogues and merging of physics and performing arts and live music performance and movement respectively.
