“But latest under the digital globalizations era the human situation in the world is separated from the immediate spatial environment. After repeated moves the readiness to make oneself familiar with the geophysical place as such disappears. […] The acceleration allows for increased spatial mobility and flexibility, but it also creates an increasing distance to our spatial and material environment.”
– Hartmut Rosa, Acceleration, modernity and identity
Today’s society is characterized by an abundance of information and an acceleration of time. By becoming constant receivers in an everywhere-and-nowhere people are being alienated from time and space and politics becomes situativ and unmanageable.
We therefore want to see the stage as a sensibility, as a place for presence and concentration. Through prolonged time, spatial displacements and really big balloons we want to create conditions for an intensified feeling of being – a reorientation of man in time and space.
