Atravesar ese bosque esta noche
Sneaking into a former airport with 7 people and a night shoot video camera on 8 June 2012, jumping two fences, and crossing a forest, in order to sleep in an old hangar where the unedited video footage is to be screened on the following day.
Tempelhof former airport in Berlin is now a private area that is partly used as a big public park with regulations of use, security, and restricted opening hours. A two-day symposium called «Performing Politics» is held there, in which artists and architects are invited to present their work.

This project uses the actual space where the event takes place. On the first night, we embarked on a little adventure with some of the participants, following a route – from the outside to the centre, from action to rest – across some of the different spaces around the hangar, ignoring its boundaries and restrictions on use.

At the presentation the following day, the audience gradually realises that the video they are watching is heading towards the place where they find themselves.
