In the piece A Walk in the Park, instability is established as reality. Through an unconventional duet, the performers communicate the necessity of cooperation and solidarity as a means for personal and social development. The piece demonstrates movement as a survival mechanism, especially under restrictive conditions, as it invites the performers to deal with their physical restrictions in order to achieve their goal — dance.
A Walk in the Park occurred as a reaction to the constant imposition of restrictions during the pandemic. It places physical restrictions on the performers’ bodies in order to achieve a literal approach of the topic. Specifically, the performers’ feet are taped onto skateboards, making any action extremely challenging. Through their restless attempt to move, they create a harmonious duet that works as a realisation that progress will and should go on, despite any difficulties.
A Walk in the Park is a site-specific piece inspired by street culture. It is performed in an urban environment to the tunes of hip-hop, and invites the audience to dance along with the performers.
