New flags are hoisted at the international houses on the campus of the Cité Universitaire. This ceremony is accompanied by a group of musicians. The international houses, built on the site of the Paris World Fair, have a representative protocol, which is interpreted and temporarily overwritten by this intervention. The lowering of the flag completes a choreographic circuit: the endless loop describing an abridged trip around the world within the structures of the CitéŐs microcosm.
