Vision is primarily a space sense, while hearing is primarily a time sense, for good physical reasons 

Frank Wilczek


We beleive every person experiences their environment in a unique way. We use what makes each place unique, in this way we find  that the space will always complete the work.

Media artist and scenographer Frouke ten Velden, composer Nicholas Thayer, director and choreographer Peter Leung work as a collective and create an innovative  immersive dance-theatre piece TimeSpace. We aim to create a revised view of the Gesamtkunstwerk in which we shall synthesize different media, the role and position of the performer and the audience experience.

The past year has shown us what it means to keep distance and to be together. TimeSpace examines the laws that govern distance and closeness, and how aware we are of this, both as makers and performers and for the audience. That being immersed, more than ever, means we have to rethink the idea of ​​space.


Timespace is een performance waarin de makers verzamelen rond de gedachte dat ieder mens zijn omgeving op een unieke manier ervaart. Ze maken gebruik van wat elke plek uniek maakt, hierdoor zal de plek het werk steeds ver voltooien. 

Mediakunstenaar en scenograaf Frouke ten Velden, componist Nicholas Thayer, regisseur en choreograaf Peter Leung werken als collectief en creëren een innovatief  immersief dans-theater stuk TimeSpace, vanuit een herziene blik op het Gesamtkunstwerk waarbij het synthetiseren verschillende media, de rol en positie van de performer en de publieksbeleving. 

Het afgelopen jaar heeft ons laten zien wat het betekent om afstand te houden en bij elkaar te zijn. TimeSpace onderzoekt de wetten die gelden in afstand en nabijheid, en hoe bewust we hiervan zijn, zowel als makers en performers als voor het publiek. Dat ondergedompeld zijn, meer dan ooit betekent dat we het idee van ruimte moeten herzien.

TimeSpace is largely based on our research  project Resonance

Resonance is a collaborative project by visual artist Frouke ten Velden, composer Nicholas Thayer and director and choreographer Peter Leung searching for ways to translate the languages of sound and vision into sculptural and musical compositions. This Research project stretches over a period of two years where we had several ‘showings’ that demonstrate our current state of research. We will be tapping into and exploring a specific research concept each time.

You can view Resonance’s previous worksessions at  RADION Amsterdam,  MU Artspace in Eindhoven,  Melkweg EXPO,  FOTONICA Festival, Rome, Italy, DRAKA Amsterdam and NEO Shibuya Tokio, 30 seconds museum.
