New Empathies: Burn Time

Performance von André Uerba

André Uerba’s performance “Burn Time” offers the audience an intense experience of time, which arises through the successive ignition of strands of thread, creating a space that is undergoing change, and thereby unleashing a strong suggestive power into the darkness. As society continues to drift further apart, the concept of empathy is currently experiencing a renaissance. The ability to empathize is regarded as the central tool with which to fight the rage exerted against the supposed Other, yet it is also seen as the danger inherent in sentimental depoliticization. In June 2019, radialsystem launched “New Empathies”, a series of programmes spanning two years, consisting of concerts, installations, choreographies, workshops, and discussions.
