The Time Is Come


English / Approx. 60 Min.

As three people prepare for departure, Realplayer presents a celebration of letting go. “The Time Is Come” is an existential rendezvous, which in turn holds, supports, restrains, and crushes through collective shape shifting that moves from care to control to suffocation. Sarah Thom (Gob Squad), Mat Hand and their son Jude expose the intimacy, conflict and bad habits of a family dynamic by testing patterns of control and power. 


Concept & Realization: Realplayer & Jude Thom / Realplayer: Sarah Thom (Gob Squad) & Mat Hand / Guest Performer: Jude Thom / Technical Manager: Max Wegner / Thanks to: Constanza Macras, Tina Pfurr, Carmen Mehnert, Pasco Q-Kelvin, Christina Runge, Pieter Ampe, Mmagkosi Kgabi, Annette Birkholz
