…ALL is a durational shower of bodies constantly holding minimum 30 people or more investigating the human mass and its power through the idea of walking and running in circles. …ALL is an ongoing poem of protest in a place accessible for the audience to enter and leave at any given time. The poem consists of a mass of different local people, possibly of different ages, backgrounds and appearances. Depending on the cultural context and geographical place of the physical poem of protest the participants might be clothed or naked.

“The score is epic because it is open enough to respond to any occasion and resonate with human struggle, protest and its poetry throughout time…The honor to walk or run on someone’s behalf was felt, and this score became part of the legacy of civil rights, although its intent was open in this context, in this moment it was in service and in reverence of those who could not walk or run, who were being persecuted for holding and being held.”

– Jeremy Wade about the score used in a protest against the imprisonment and torture of LGBT people in Chechnya outside of the Russian Embassy in Berlin, May 1st, 2017
