In preparation for The Refusal of Time (a project for Documenta 13 in Kassel, 2012, informed by discussion with the science historian Peter Galison) Kentridge worked with composer Philip Miller and award winning dancer and choreographer Dada Masilo to create Dancing with Dada. The work wrestles with our changing ideas about time, the history of the standardisation of time, and resistance to a linear construction of time and space. It includes dance, live music, strange machines, and projection.
