About this Event

Chalk Walk is a promenade-through-the-city experience for two people who have never met. One is an audience member, the other a performer. The walk is marked at the beginning and end by a stick of chalk, with places of interest and notable moments in the unfolding conversation sometimes annotated in chalk along the way.

Emerging from the experience of lock-down, when people are encouraged to walk daily but restricted from physical intimacy, Chalk Walk is a bridge from this time into a fresh way of living: slowing down, looking at our city environment, and ourselves.

Chalk Walk is a joyous and unique co-authoring of the physical journey taken and the content of what is discussed. On the walk, the chalk can be used to emphasize an aspect of the other’s conversation, or your own. It can also be used to draw attention to an aspect of architecture, for example, drawing a chalk handle on a walled-up door.

There is a beautiful connection with ‘the other’ that this experience will create. The opportunity to kindle and foster trust again, the trust that has been knocked and battered over the course of these times.

Trust that we can grow together, rather than apart.

(NB this performance will follow all Covid-19 restriction currently in place)
