2019, Performance (1 h),  Late at Tate,  Tate Britain, London, UK

Room 1840 of Tate Britain is turned into an unconventional clock, where seconds and minutes are marked by flamenco steps and stomps. At the centre of the clock, two performers display a fluid interpretation of time, as the result of their inner life, desires and emotions.

In contact but distant, in extreme proximity but not touching, one Too Early the other Too Late. Except few moments, the hour that they display is never exact.

Too Early to Love You, Too Late to Kiss You can be also described as a romantic encounter between two lovers of the same sex that, for a matter of seconds, never happened.
