Block Time 

A continuing dance-theater exploration of performance and time by Seattle artists Amy J Lambert (Director/Choreographer), Taryn Collis (Theater/Playwriting), Sean Tomerlin (Dance).

Inspired by science as ritual/science as belief system and its possible cathartic abilities. Is the passion of science as inflammatory as the passion of religion? How could the understanding or acceptance of time as a flexible component affect storytelling and grief.

Theory of Block Time - the idea that all time, past, present, and future, exist in one large block. This holds that although we can only move through time in a linear fashion, it does not mean that time itself is linear.

Project Support:
The dramaturgical research for this project has been supported in part by Artist Trust’s Grants for Artist Projects (GAP).


“People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”
– Albert Einstein

“It is sometimes said that scientists are unromantic, that their passion to figure out robs the world of its beauty and mystery.”
- Carl Sagan
