Walking arts and walking stories
In East and West, for centuries, painters, poets, dancers were walking in the landscape (natural and urban) and finding sources of reference or inspiration. Walking stories are carried in memory and remain existing for as long as there is a body to carry them. Walking is not characterized by one solid approach; it can be drifting, wandering, strolling, aimless, or purposeful. Each one of these practices suggests a body that remembers and they are introducing different approaches of storytelling.
