The time that is left “The Killer in me is the Killer in you, my love” is a piece about the first cigarette, the first love and the first jump in “cold water”, a reflection about a crack between childhood and the world of grown-ups. In our interdisciplinary research, ten old and young performers are observing the old scares and fresh wounds of the summer of their life. The years burn. Through the ruin of the Varaždin Drava Bathing Resort, wrecked by time, which is a place of a strong collective memory of “better times”, we are entering an emotional pool of traces of the first experiences, big hopes and disappointments that formed some new identities. As many bodies – as many truths. We are opening a discussion about individual differences in perceiving reality and borders of really understanding the other. How hard are we really trying? By projections on a contemporary stage, a placeholder for “here and then”, we are questioning a different perception of time and this very moment where “what will become of us?” / “what is waiting for us?” and memory is overlapping. The old wound of the loneliness of adolescence is bleeding again. The water is coming in through every crack until it is up to the neck.  We are floating on speechlessness. We move.
