Artist Myriam Lefkowitz’s ongoing project Walk, Hands, Eyes (a city) examines the relationship formed between a city and its inhabitants. Over the course of an hour’s silent walk through a city, a participant and a guide form an immersive relationship with their surroundings through the simple acts of walking, seeing, and touching. Developed in collaboration with the Barbican Theatre in Plymouth we’re seeking eight Plymouth residents to be part of this project for the Plymouth Art Weekender.

 

Opportunity to train with the artist

Are you interested in guiding someone around your city? We are offering the opportunity for eight people to train with the artist Myriam Lefkowitz, and performers Julie Laporte, Francesca Cogni and Jean-Philippe Derail, to lead one-to-one guided explorations of Plymouth.

You don’t have to be a trained dancer or performer, we’re looking for people with interests in any of the following:

-Changing or shifting perceptions of your surroundings

-Exploring the relationship between mind and body

-Body-centred practices involving the use of touch and movement

-Experiencing and engaging in one-to-one performance

-Live performance, theatre and/or contemporary dance

Please be aware that performers must be available for the full 5 days of training and as much of the Art Weekender as possible. More information available on request.
