Black Pencil and Gouden Haas meet in a timeless space
What does a timeless space sound like? How do you experience time? Like a clock that chases you from hour to hour? Or time that can last endless and make you forget the clock? And what about the space you are in? Is it endless and are you part of it? These questions form the philosophical starting point of theater company Gouden Haas and Ensemble Black Pencil for their duo residency at StrandLAB.
The title? Timeless.
