The Dark Side of Time (simultaneously a dance piece, a performance and an installation) is the third piece using Jo Fabian's Alphasystem.
An earlier Alphasystem performance, ›Lighthouse [alphasstem 04]‹, was shown during the International Dance Fair NRW in Essen in June 2000.
In the year 2001 the time has once again come for the totalization and / or melding of genres (dance/acting/music/performance). DEPARTMENT/fabian.dept had been working on investigating individual genres in depth and thus produced very genre-specific works.

"The Dark Side of Time" is made possible by the 3. German Theatre Producers Prize for Choreography awarded to Jo Fabian for his achievements in directing and choreography in 1999.
The prize, presented jointly by an association of 12 German producers that includes Tanzlandschaft Ruhr in Essen, carries one of the highest endowments for the performing arts in Europe.
