A park for six voices


“En park for seks stemmer" ("A park for six voices") is a participatory play for six people. It was played through on three different days in about three hours each day. The participants met on the central station in Copenhagen, where they got their scripts. Every participant got a character with an individual script and was then spread from the rest of the group. The scripts contained six dialogues in sealed envelopes and six routes to follow. Throughout the day the participants moved around individually through streets, squares, parks, cafés and bars in Copenhagen, where they met each other and played through dialogues two and two. The play contained a main plot that was only revealed to some of the characters and several leit motifs that reoccured through the participants’ own character’s development. While the play lasted, no one was present besides the participants. There is no video, sound or photo documentation. The only document that exists from the play are small traces that the different characters left in the public space, as a proof that the play took place. I couldn’t find all the traces from the play, but the traces I found have become this archive. One last trace from the play, a flower bulb brought home by one of the characters, will bloom in spring.
