performance pieces

Ciudades Paralelas is an exploration of urban social relationships through the medium of performance and theatre. The engaging tactics at work in these pieces might be framed as the creation of ‘personal (more or less) guided encounters with the other/the unexpected’.

please have a look yourself: at  CIUDADES PARALELAS / PARALLEL CITIES

excerpt from the project concept:

“For “Ciudades Paralelas”, Lola Arias and Stefan Kaegi have invited several artists to devise interventions for hotel rooms, shopping centres, factories… functional city places, not usually thought of as interesting to the outside eye. Eight artists have each chosen a location in the city as observation stations for urban phenomena. Some of them chose to work with radio receivers or headphones, others with a choir or with people in their workspaces. The pieces vary in form: You can listen to some of them, others you can read or touch. Some are for 1, others for 100 spectators. Some of the performers are singers, others writers, passers-by or even the audience themselves.”

The project includes a piece by Ant Hampton & Tim Etchells in a Public Library: The Quite Volume!
