See Edinburgh as if for the first time – again! en route returns in all of its retro glory, thirteen years after its UK debut at TravFest.
en route is a love song to our city, unfolding places, personal and private, present and past.
Engaging with audio, mobile phones, iPods, walking, urban streetscapes, and the city, en route invites you on a walking and listening journey – both inward and outward – across the thoroughfares and back-alleys of Edinburgh.
Part traveller, witness, and voyeur. As you journey, fragments of narrative, local music, and sound, intertwine with directions, wanderings, observations, and found experiences. The spontaneous choreography of passers-by, streets, alleys, and buildings evoke a city on which to project your own narratives and meanings as perceptions, insights, senses make and remake the city you inhabit.
