Walking on Water (Promenade 6)
The performance, which effectively dissolves the boundaries of dance, sound and visual art, is the outcome of a residency in rural Sweden – a land of lakes and forests. What has emerged may possibly seem like a mix between an eccentric removal company and a dance, with sonic elements in which often incongruous events occur. The whole is intended to create a sense of place, which is partly real (a specific location) and partly imagined (our own responses to that location).
