Special instructions: This performance moves through the park following the railroad tracks. Audiences are encouraged to move with the performers. For those who are not mobile there will be places to sit, where the performers pause in their travels to provide entertainment.
A costumed dancer and musician perform a series of unplanned performances that traverse the city. The spontaneous nature of the performances, and the travelling-through, avoids gathering of crowds and affects the public through unintentional encounters.
The traditional way of travelling by foot has long been the mode of transportation for minstrels, vagabonds and la flâneur. Flâneur to wander with no purpose a deliberately aimless pedestrian, unencumbered by any obligation or sense of urgency. Reflecting on this method of traversal, this performance hopes to leave a trail, an experiential presence, reverberating through the people who are indirectly and unintentionally affected.
Wanderers and travellers have traditionally appeared throughout history on our streets and roads following upheaval and change. As a response to COVID-19 pandemic, to unleash our art freely in this manner seems an appropriate response.
