Flamingoes live in large flocks in salinized lakes, their colors change depending on their reproductive state. Flamingos perform synchronized dancing during the mating season. Giraffes have a flatly organized fairly democratic power structure in their family. The hybrid combines abstract forms and synchronicity.

Flock mentality is seen with the artistic and scientific eyes of 28 children originally staged in the constructed enclosures of the Zoological garden in Copenhagen. At the Museum/Kunsthal the students perform their hybrid animal flock performance. Inviting the audience into the flock and letting them participate in a series of common rituals and personal stories.

The piece is produced and curated for FOCUS video art festival in Copenhagen at Nikolaj Kunsthal. FLOCKS is financed by the Danish Art Foundation, Performing Arts and Visual Arts.
