We build a wall, you build a wall. We tear a wall, you tear a wall. Teo Paaer's piece is a performative installation about boundaries. It involves participants and audience in the act of building and tearing down a wall made of 175 marble bricks. Performers are building the wall by taking bricks from the end of the wall and moving them to the front, making the wall to move forward. They need to co-operate, communicate and coordinate the build. Start and end points are set, otherwise the builders can choose route for the wall and they choose how to tackle possible obstacles and problems. The piece manifests the physical, political and mental boundaries that are being built or torn down and in which we take part as individuals and as members of our society. It brings people together, to collaborate and to confront.
