This walkshop in Prespa activity aims to address questions of ability, mobility, disability, personal space and sociality through the experience of walking. The activity will be separated into three sections, each of them correlating to a respective theme. These activities to take place during the morning for a group of flexible number of participants, which can range from 2 to 40. Each section entails a different set of questions that we will explore via group discussion, following the experience.
We decided to focus on these themes, in order to increase awareness of the self in space and social relationships. The themes are personal, as in; they address the exploration of self and examine the interaction between the self and a partner or a group.
The first part of the walkshop includes the investigation of the body through space as a whole and the impact of that experience when they are instructed to not use different body parts.The second part, addresses the relationship of two people and their agency through space. In continuation, participants will later explore how “immobility” influences the dynamics between the pair. Finally, the third section will focus on movements being carried out on a communal and individual level. In the latter condition, the group will be instructed to respond to the participant’s movements by applauding. This will allow us to investigate the effect of attention and group reaction on individual experiences of movement.
