A person hides behind a roofing sheet and another one covers himself as if pouring rain will fall over his head. Then, six people move together to form a new image that transforms within their gestures.

Exploring the performance between its documentation and its fiction, Code Parallel address modes of protections. Partly improvised and choreographed, performers make individual and collective physical movements that denotes the defensive gestures independently or in a community. The space of old architecture collides with the modern object, questioning the anachronism and systems of thoughts that persevere through time.

Performers: Paula Abalos Russell Banx Alexander Blühm Lauriane Dine Clemens Fellman Aliya Seyfahrt
