This thesis analyses the relationship between labour, time and the performing arts. Time, in combination with other factors, determines the working conditions a profession is related to. The aim in this research, then, is to deeply understand what the temporality of speed, which is characteristic of the current post-fordist age, consists of and how it affects the working conditions in the field of the performing arts. After that, I discuss the potentiality of the concept of "laziness" as an alternative temporality and how it could provide an opportunity to redefine the performing arts’ working conditions.
