Eleesha Drennan Dance All The Time In The World
Time is infinite
A lifetime is finite
We are all here to catch a glimpse
Have you ever been struck by how slowly time passes whilst waiting for something to happen? Or, how quickly it passes in an emergency?
All The Time In The World brings this contrast into focus, revealing the human power to shift perspective and navigate the quirks of time.
It’s about not having all the time in the world but pretending you do, just for fun. It’s a tribute to all the birthday parties that never happened during the pandemic in one big existential bash. This evening of dance theatre moves through the urgency of a life-or-death situation, the timelessness of falling in love and the disorientation one can feel amid uncertainty. This is the Sadler’s Wells debut for Eleesha Drennan Dance and features a brand-new work performed by Company of Elders.
Image description: A line of wooden sandtimers stretches back from the camera, dividing a pale, undefined space into two. On the left, a woman in a loose blue sleeveless dress arches back towards the central line, her arms lifted. On the right, a man in grey trousers and pale blue shirt also arches towards the centre, one leg lifted straight up to the side.
