Leisure Resort Parallelweg

Podcast (Dutch)

G.A.N.G. already organised many day trips with P-travels to footloose landscapes such as shopping malls, brain parks, fast-food strips, and the highway. In short, the parallel world. As a follow-up to the day trips, G.A.N.G. set up Leisure Resort Parallel//road. Overseeing the A12 highway from the industrial park the Nieuwgraaf, the resort offered the audience the chance to spend some time in the parallel world.

Impression of industrial park the Nieuwgraaf

Over thirty artists, designers and performers contributed to the resort. Together, the installations and performances formed a temporary and unique holiday park to enjoy the good, rich life that exists along our highways.

Leisure Resort Parallel//way offered weekend packages. There was a first class restaurant ‘Trailer Made (T.I.R.)’ in the back of a truck, and ‘St. Hubertus’, an outdoor beer bar overseeing the AVR garbage furnace on the horizon. In the evenings you could visit the stylish casino ‘Royal’ or enjoy the varied entertainment in the exclusive ‘Club Zeth’.But the active vacationer was not forgotten either; for them we developed a survival trip through the unexpected nature and forgotten wilderness behind the many distribution centres. With the ‘POP-UPS’ performance evening, sitting on a driving grandstand, the distri park became the backdrop of modern dance theatre. All was possible in Leisure Resort Parallel//away!
