Parallel City: Party in Elisabetin - XO Route

Help XO, the coolest deaf influencer in town, track down the Tata Program in which her father, genius inventor Leonid Wurm coded his soul before he died. The Tata Program is hidden somewhere in the space of Lela’s party.  

For the party:

1. Dress funky! And include at least one pink or blue item in your costume. Lola's requirements... meh. But we have to fit in to get in. 

2. Wear super comfortable shoes! You'll have to walk about 500 meters. You'll also be climbing stairs, and moving through space. Leave the heels at home. Lola's party is uber-casual. 

3. You can take photos, make Insta stories or TikToks. Etc Etc. XO really encourages it and you can always tag her, if you wish. Or @orasulparalel.

The Parallel City: Party in Elisabetin concludes the Parallel City trilogy created by director Ana Mărgineanu and playwright Peca Ștefan. An immersive theatrical wonderland, The Parallel City: Party in Elisabetin invites multiple viewings, with audiences able to choose one of 5 available performative routes at every performance. Each route features one or more characters: parallelian Lela, police colonel Edgár (one of the secondary characters in The Parallel City: Iosefin), former typist Beáta (one of the secondary characters in The Parallel City: Fabric), deaf influencer XO, or Lela’s Crew members for the Portal route. Participants will also be able to explore and experience several attractions: The Game of Life (playable by up to 6 players), The Tent of Secrets (which offers puppet theatre for a limited audience), The Labyrinth of Mirrors, The Forest of Whispers, The Well of Time, The Ocean of Continuity and The Realm of Wishes. 

The Parallel City: Party in Elisabetin also offers the public a non-performative route, The Parallelian from Elisabetin, featuring audio recordings of real and fascinating stories told by residents of the neighborhood. This route will be launched in September and it will be free and open 24/7.
