DAP-Lab ensemble returns to Sadler’s Wells with “for the time being,” a choreosonic dance work which explores the sound of movement in a performance inspired by the Russian Futurist opera “Victory over the Sun” (1913) and its fantastical visual designs. Taking a contemporary slant on the ‘Futurian’ world imagined by this astonishing multimedia work of the early twentieth century, the maverick ensemble of the DAP-Lab performs its unique blend of design, choreography and live music in an intimate chamber work that looks at the fragmented home of our precarious existence in a world full of outworn clichés of revolutions.
