You have work to do but you are waiting for the right time to start. You wait for the alarm to go off, for the train to arrive, for the computer to power on, for the coffee to kick in. You have documents to print, telephone calls to field, colleagues to speak to and time waits for no one.
O+P works and BATS Theatre present the 2021 STAB Commission.
It’s a playground of administration. A race against the clock. A brand-new interactive, durational experience. BIGTIMECLOCKS, it’s about time.
BIGTIMECLOCKS is a 4hr event. You are free to come and go throughout the performance, the door to the theatre will be open at all times. Stay as long or as little as you like. On occasions when the space is full, there may be a wait time for you to enter or re-enter.
