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.
