Abstract: 

A Walk for 09.09.17 was a walking practice that invited engagement of the senses through the geography of Vancouver and focused on being present. Traversing through Vancouver’s Chinatown and Strathcona neighbourhoods, the work explored site as a composition and invited the audience into the role of performer/composer. The audience was lead through a preconceived path of which they were unaware and were encouraged to listen, breathe, walk, and practice being in the present moment together. Throughout the walk, performers were encountered in specific locations where they were musically improvising. The work explored methods of listening, invitation, and sharing (listening) experiences with others.
