Parallel Parks is an audiovisual narrative which connect two locations – the Wallenstein Gardens in Prague and the gardens of the Drottningholm Castle in Stockholm.

It consists of two parts, each of which are presented in the corresponding garden. The two parts were first presented at the urban/site-specific sound festival Transient Zones 3 and the IFTR Theatre Conference in Drottningholm in 2016 and are continually in development.

It consists of letters, sounds and images which connect the parallel lives of the two gardens, which are connected through the history of bronze sculptures by Adriaen de Vries, which were taken from Prague to Stockholm as war booty at the end of the 30 years war.
