The Timestealers

  • Title: The Timestealers
  • Role: Sound designer, composer, operator and performer
  • Company: Very Clock
  • Performances: Queen’s Head pub, London (July 2016).


The Timestealers is an immersive headphone performance for 10 audience members sat around a table, using binaural sound technologies and original music to transport you to another world. One part time management training, two parts sensory scintillation with an extra shot of ridiculous, it is an adventure story that you can be a part of. This performance challenges our relationship to time and creates an intimate encounter with sound, physicality and silver spandex. It is inspired by cartoons, sci-fi, 80’s synth pop, ASMR videos and the story of Momo by Michael Ende.

Audience Testimonials

  • The show is challenging our preconceptions that time exists sequentally. It is about how time goes in our head and in the material and rises the question who controls it.”
    Lauren Tata, Scenographer, Assistant Designer on The Encounter by Complicité and Simon McBurney
  • “I loved the playfulness, audience involvement and the idea of wasting time. An interesting performance about perceiving the present through an intimate and inmediate fruition of sounds. The creatures were hilarious, suitably ludicrous!”
    Lee Campbell, artist, lecturer at Central Saint Martins, London and Royal Central School of Speech and Drama
  • “I enjoyed the crazy, grotesque dances, silver spandex, the general space of absurdity/ackward creatures. Did not realise you had squirrels everywhere.”
    Chris Rowland, artist
  • “Repetiton and apprehension. Capitalist timewasting vs productivity and the guilt that comes with both .”
    India Smith, theatre maker
