Eleven participants lie face down on the street where they almost block traffic on Boulevard St. Laurent and proceed to pound the pavement with the microphone one thousand times. The sound of each person’s actions is amplified. Each person chooses their own rhythm and intensity. The performance took place as part of the Suoni per il Popolo, at the Sala Rossa, June 9, 2008.

Participants: Adam Bobbette, Gina Badger, Alexis Bellavance, Olivia Boudreau, Sophie B. Clément, Leanne Dyer, Nadège Forget, Darsha Hewitt, Marc-Antoine K. Phaneuf, Fred Savard, Janice Wu.
