Workshop, Performances and Symposium
Whether walking together or on our own, we are always synchronizing and desynchronizing: swinging limbs, ad‐ justing muscle tone, heartbeat, breathing... Our bodies are defined by a multiplicity of rhythms, which perma‐ nently influence each other. If we look closer into the seemingly simple movement of walking, we discover a rich polychronicity and various forms of mutual attunement. In a five‐days workshop, an open‐air performance, and a two‐days symposium, artists and scholars from different fields will explore the dynamics of walking in respect to rhythmical self‐organization. Which are our techniques, our cultures, our ecologies, our politics of walking?
