In the Felix Meritis theatre
in the week before christmas,
from December the 20th till the 24th, 1996
a late night show has taken place. A multi media music-theatre show
in which actors, singers, dancers, musicians, media artists
and others were invited to give their contribution around
the theme of the show, time and emotion during christmas.
With songs, dialogues, readings, music and other audio, video
and other imagery, every night an hour was compiled, which
was different every night dependant on which guest were present.

it can stretch or shrink, becomes more or less important,
can be dependent on it's location, either by distance or surroundings --
The show tried to make it's own reflection of time, or "timecapsule",
each night, with various media.
Not only live present on stage but also via the internet and ISDN
