I’m a wanderer, a city walker. My act of wandering is happening through solitude. I wander for hours thinking, not-thinking, strolling, observing, listening, remembering, dancing, witnessing. I disconnect from the others. I even disconnect from myself and through this distance I can be the other, the one that exist with me, or not. The one that I can perform, or dream, the one that has not being defined yet! The other who nobody knows and I only know of. And the others within me would walk in the city.
Let’s explore the collective experience of strolling, yet keeping the atmosphere of solitariness. Come and join us if you want to wander in the city of Vancouver through me, through my body. I will stroll around for you and with you.
