Seconds used to be longer

Seconds used to be longer exists in two versions:


a performance for galeries and public spaces.

an interactive school show.


A theatrical and philosophical performance in movements, inviting the audience to participate and, chose how to use their time.


Through questions, the piece provokes thoughts about what time is worth and how we chose to spend that value. Is it something that we share, that we even accept to give away for free?


How much does two minutes costs?

Who would buy seven secondes of true lies?


I sell four minutes of breathing

I sell seven seconds of futur
