Time Sensitive is a daring new play by Artistic Director Amy Sass, which combines clockwork choreography, rhythmic fugue and ice art into a fantastical tale that urgently asks: How do we hold a moment if we constantly crave the next big thing? We explore the impact of our perception of time on the decisions we make personally, professionally, and politically. We examine the dilemmas, paralysis, and opportunities we face in a world of technologically accelerated communication, increased connectivity, and dwindling resources.

And the edge of the city crept closer
An original play

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. Now there are only seconds and nanoseconds and a constant insatiable GO. Speed is power, status is vertical, and time is literally up.
