Each part of the Paraperformance Triology deals with one topic: Telepathy, Oracle and Universe. The prefix PARA indicates the existing "alongside" and "beyond" something, meaning that Paraperformance is exploring the parallel existence of the magical and scientific or the factual and fictional world.
Paraperformance 1 - Telepathic Material: Due to a geographical separation the protagonists can only meet at certain moments in time. Telepathy becomes the means of communicating. The result is a video that juxtaposes the performative actions of the the artists.
In Paraperformance 2 the artists are communicating face to face. Having collected various performative actions, videos, texts and quotations, they investigate, if a connection of thoughts is possible. The visible dialog brings together what was experienced separately.
Paraperformance 3 consists of a set of cabins and a performance. The cabins are an archive location for all the data required for the performance. They represent two possible parallel worlds that each condensate one ideal conception or imagination.
The performance deals with questions about the universe: What is the universe? The universe is everything. The universe is all information. All the information can be divided in information that can be perceived and transmitted. A lecture, that begins again and again, yet the end of the universe cannot be reached.
