Jasmine Baume & Byron Gago‘s project was born from the desire to explore their respective backgrounds and experiences, as well as their shared interest in environmental issues. The pair will propose an unconventional reading of the European legislative procedure for environmental law. The project will take the form of a video performance that gathers and offers a narrative based on a reconstruction of the dialogues constructed and carried out at the European Parliament. Together, Jasmine Baume and Byron Gago seek to explore and reinforce the emotions linked to the relationship between political action and environmental challenges.
