About Time Sensitive

A crack is growing. The shape of time is changing. Only a few can see it. The City swallowed the world. It ate the day and the night. It ate the tides and the seasons. A woman speeds up her pregnancy to meet a deadline, The Asshole At The Top finally comes down, and an old man invents a Clockwork Kid that can change everything. Now there are only seconds and nanoseconds and a constant insatiable GO. Speed is power, status is vertical, and time is literally up.

"Time Sensitive" is an original play by Ragged Wing Ensemble's Artistic Director Amy Sass that combines clockwork choreography, rhythmic fugue and melting ice into a fantastical tale that urgently asks: How do we hold a moment if we constantly crave the next big thing? Originally created in workshop with Ragged Wing 5 years ago, this production will feature an updated script as well as a deep collaboration with Climate Artist Carter Brooks and his ice-art.

Time Sensitive brings a great deal of physicality to the stage, as characters carry each other, leap, dance, and move in groups to convey various moods and states of being.
Synchronized Chaos
A good-humored takedown of contemporary capitalism’s devotion to acceleration.
Bay Area Reporter
Intense, poetic, and highly physical, this performance piece boasts symbolic critiques of capitalism. The entire cohesive cast shines as a unit.
