A female voice welcomes us. It is the voice that asks us to switch off our mobile phones before the start of the performance, but it is also the voice that asks us to press the hash key twice or to leave a message after the tone. This voice accompanies us on a passage through the waves to attend a varied labyrinth of telephone conversations, a clear reflection of new habits, uses and customs to which the dictatorship of the mobile phone has brought us. Party line projects a comic look at a new race of men and women with a mobile stuck to their ear, but also seeks to highlight the lack of communication inherent in the information society and the paradoxical solitude it brings, and especially the degree of dependence and slavery that the irruption of the mobile phone has introduced into our lives.
