An isolated telephone operator connects calls alone in her exchange. She has never existed outside of this booth and her only understanding of the world beyond is through the subscribers who call in and the connections she makes. How close to this outer ‘reality’ can she ever reach? And what happens when she receives a call which doesn’t appear to be for anyone at all?

Laura Moody’s song-based drama, set within Clay Gold’s sonic environment of crackling devices, presents an intimate tale of alienation, connection and transformation. With voice, cello, tape machines and a working telephone exchange system, Parallelist explores the rich poetry embedded in consciousness theory.
