Award-winning, interdisciplinary performance company, plastic orchid factory, marks its 10th anniversary with a new work, i miss doing nothing, created and directed by Natalie LeFebvre Gnam and James Gnam, in collaboration with prolific Vancouver artists, Nancy Tam, James Proudfoot and Vanessa Goodman.

Performed at Left of Main over four summer afternoons, i miss doing nothing is a 3-hour living installation layering dance, memory, sound, light and architecture to ask if we can perceive the passage of time differently.

James Gnam and Natalie LeFebvre Gnam will recall and dance fragmented memories of the work that they have created together over the past 10 years, while James Proudfoot, Vanessa Goodman and Nancy Tam shape light and sound found in the studio and the surrounding neighbourhood.

We live in a moment where time seems to have accelerated, constant activity and availability is the rule and not the exception. i miss doing nothing is an immersive performance that responds to the values and the impact of living in continuous action by creating an environment that asks us to focus on the spaces in between activities. Space, sound and movement are organized around the rhythms of memory, breath and attention to focus the sensation of time passing through our bodies and imaginations.
