Movement, sound and visual arts melt together in this extraordinary composition

After the international success of Yonder, a dance solo with dance talent Jefta Tanate, choreographer Jasper van Luijk takes another step in depicting the relationship between man and time. The Definition of Now explores the dynamics of time and the experience of this in the life of one man. Three-dimensional light barriers, projected visuals, and a synchronized soundscape alternately influence the time line along which Jefta moves. The dancer and the technology take turns in control, and together create a unique sensual world. Can man guide and shape the way he experiences time?
