A dimension that enables two identical events occurring at the same point in space to be distinguished.

Created for the MichaelDouglas Kollektiv as part of their ‘One week stand’ series, Timepiece is a response to the collective’s request to create a work in a relatively short timeframe (7days). In order to achieve this Lang chose to create a model, which encompassed autonomy and order whilst focusing on the specificities of the INSTANTANEOUS. Dividing the stage in two parts: the time taken by a particular action determined the duration and content of a simultaneously performed choreographic counteraction. Although the two events were aurally and conceptually inseparable, the spectator could visually bounce between them and follow the ever-evolving engagements that were taking place.
