Post-industrial rural paths

Experiential Participatory Performance

The work is experiential and inspired by rural life, food cultivation and the post-industrial era of the city of Aspropyrgos.
For five days a different group of 15 spectators meet in the agricultural area of Aspropyrgos and participate in a ritual performance. Through an afternoon walk the artist experientially maps out, with the audience, the rural paths of the area. She underlines her unity with the power of the ground, communication with the four elements and retrieves from the memory of the audience the senses of a forgotten experience with nature in its post-industrial era.
