Can we imagine a world without humans? Flags parade posits this impossible hypothesis in grotesque form: hiding the contours of the body in a flamboyant camouflage, not to make it disappear, but rather to make it appear differently. The bodies metamorphose via costumes, which transform movement and offer the dancers a new way of appearing and expressing themselves. Are they flags moving? Colourful birds? Hybrid creatures trying to communicate with each other? They seek each other, calling to one another, turning around, and finally meeting in a parade, a cry of love.
