Tomorrow Brought Us Rain
Once upon a time, there were no clocks. There was a time of youth and a time of old age. A time for disease and desire, celebration and Spring. But as the demands for productivity and growth boomed, pragmatics synchronised time. Clocks arrived and disciplined us. No longer a subjective experience, time soon warped into a commodity to be bartered with.
Until now. An engineer is embarking on a quest to invent a new clock. An ultimate clock that will bring regimented thinking to a screeching halt. Time, like the tiger that eats us and the tiger we are, could remain an ever-evaporating bliss.
Tomorrow Brought Us Rain is a collaboration between Pieter De Buysser and Mattias De Craene. Bringing together a fable and an original soundtrack, join them for an anti-imperialistic, counter-clockwise musical story-cum-theatrical concert.
