The Parallel Show Grande Finale is a project for improvised performance. It will take place on Saturday 30 June and Sunday 1 July at two different locations: the white cube of NP3 in Groningen (NL) and the chapel of Greylight Projects in Brussels (BE). The weekend will finally end with a performative public dinner at Pictura, Dordrecht (NL).
On Saturday 30 June the two performances will start simultaneously in both spaces. From 10.00 am to 17.00 the doors will be opened to the public, the entrance is free.
In each location a video camera will stream a real-time video to be projected in the corresponding site. The projected video ensures that there is a mixing of physically and virtually present performers performers (and visitors).
When the doors close at 17.00, the groups of performers swap locations to work again on Sunday during the same hours.
At the end of the day all performers will then leave for Dordrecht (about half way between Groningen and Brussels), where they are invited for a public dinner in Pictura at 20.00. Visitors are welcome to join the meal. During the dinner a performative conversation will take place.
