Amina Szecsödy’s Mean Time offers a provocative perspective on the surrounding zeitgeist.

The title Mean Time is explored in its double meaning, referring both to the expression

meantime; the time between waiting for something, and the direct translation, a nasty time-

The world has become overwhelming in all its complexity, in its ambiguity, but here the

audience is confronted both as a passive observer and a participating witness. The protagonist,

a kind of oracle, tries to give the world a structure again, while wrestling a collective and

individual apocalypse. Loud and hypersensitive, between tragedy and grotesque, she

questions her own position and methods of resistance.

The performance is about 45 minutes long without intermission.


Amina Szecsödy (b. 1995, Sweden) is a performance maker based between Stockholm and

Brussels. Her work incorporates quotations, sound design, scriptwriting, and collaboration,

channeling the dissonant voices of the past and future in the immediate present. Via this

process of ‘siphoning off’, Szecsödy develops new complexities and combinations of

language and gesture.

Szecsödy holds a BA in Performing Arts from Malmö Theatre Academy and is currently

finishing her MA in Choreography and Performance at Giessen University. Recent works and

collaborations include the play Ge mig en fast punkt och jag ska rubba jorden for Teater

Västernorrland, Rear Windows (Deutsches Filminstitut Frankfurt) Condition report

(Kunstverein Frankfurt) & RAUBKOPIE (Künstlerhaus Mousonturm & Thalia Theater,

nominated for Körber Studio für Junge Regie. She is currently developing the solo work

Mean Time as well as the collaborative project Shadow text together with Chloe Chignell.
