Automobile Emballage

A gigantic ramp was constructed in front of goods entrance. One by one four cars pass in a recurrent circulation. They are painted in earth-colours, carrying enormous packages and with loud sound effects forcing their way out the windows. The fifth car turns into the audience, windows rolled down and a journey follows on the two video-screens that are appearing. The car disappears and we enter the premises burdened with large packages, which are tipped over and left with the audience. The sound of two church-bells comes from the packages. Exit
