Deborah Hay’s works are not about naturalness and athleticism  or the abstraction of movement. After 50 years of outstanding choreographic activity, which she started as a member of the legendary Judson Dance Theatre under the influence of John Cage and Merce Cunningham in the 1960s, her understanding of dance is marked rather by seeing as such. She invites the audience to define their experience of and with movement not through the actions of the dancers but to follow the shiftings in one’s own perception and one’s own changing and adapting reactions.

After Deborah Hay has spent recent years primarily choreographing for groups, No Time to Fly is a rare opportunity to experience the exceptional artist as a performer again. "No Time to Fly attempts to  truly admit and celebrate the ephemeral nature of dance by learning to notice, and consciously embody, time passing", she says of her new solo, in which she seeks alternatives to conventional and linear images of the body in space and time.
