Dear believers in art, storytelling and the power of the imagination, please help us continue to sustain the work, ideas and the momentum behind ‘The Parallel Effect’ – a new, powerful project that imagines multiple, plausible alternatives to the “present” we’re living.

The basic premise is that scientists attached to CERN’s Large Hadron Collider discovered an inter-dimensional rift to a series of parallel universes that look very much like ours, even feature many of the same players and systems we’re familiar with… But worlds that at a critical point in the 1970’s and 80’s have handled the climate change disaster, modern imperialism and neoliberalism, differently. At first glance this might sound rather far-fetched but our histories tell a different story. It all could have happened differently…

The parameters for imagining these other universes – and how they might look and function – are anchored in our (perceived) world’s socio-political & cultural histories, scientific advancements and possibilities. We are working with a fascinating and far-reaching team of thinkers and practitioners with vocational backgrounds in transdisciplinary research, philosophy, political sciences, international relations and policy, art, theoretical physics as well as first nations writers and technologists. We are actively working to expand upon this group as much as we can to ensure the most relevant, exciting and divergent display of possibilities are explored.

So we’re now at the “business end” of this fundraising campaign and can assure you that all support will go a long way as we continue to build and adapt our project from what was originally a live, interactive touring event, to something that can live and thrive within the new, and necessary parameters of today.

We’ve started putting together an ever-growing online resource for you to explore at your leisure; which, among other things, contains fascinating and largely forgotten artefacts relating to climate change and social justice. We’ve also produced a new video-work and talk which are available for you to watch / listen to, and we’ll be launching a blog and announcing a moving virtual event soon. Please visit our website http://www.paralleleffect.com and travel through the rabbit hole with us!

Thank you for your support.

Origami Flight are a bunch of passionate interdisciplinary storytellers who make stuff fly across various platforms including participatory installations, immersive theatre, documentary film, radio, drama, digital platforms, live performance and events.

We are inspired by concepts that challenge preconceived ideas, forge points of connection between unlikely parties and flirt wildly with the surreal or unexpected.

Material that celebrates the imagination, knowledge building, mind-expansion and, doesn’t shy away from controversial topics but attracts meaningful, social engagement is also high on our hit-list.
