In this audio-paper I intend to discuss the performative project “Three routes and a detour towards the same end”, performed in 2019 as part of the research “Dramaturgies of the Everyday. Speculations on the Fictional Dimension of the Real” developed at the Master of Art and Design for the Public Space of the University of Porto.Considering my set designer expertise, I developed a few hypotheses in order to understand and think about the borders between notions of fiction and reality in an urban environment. The performative project is based on the daily routes I used to catch, through the streets of Porto, to take my son to his nursery – the proposal consists of four “walks” for a small group of participants. For each path, I used different procedures to explore ideas, such as: the coexistence of distinct time frames, the path as a narrative, the multiplicity of views about the same path and the idea of deviation as a field of possibilities. Against the automatism of everyday life the project intends to connect participants to the dimension of experience, imagination and subjective time. That is, “Three routes and one deviation towards the same end” create a hybrid territory that suggest some sort of fictions without fully determining them, leading to liminal places in the city symbolic landscape. The text that follows is the transcript of the audio-paper and has been adapted to this format especially for Drifting Bodies-Fluent Spaces, designed to be heard while walking.

Key-words:“Percursos-experiência”; art by instruction; dramaturgy; everyday Life; walking art.

Percursos-experiência: propostas para rever a cidade – Aurora dos Campos Neste audio-paper discorro sobre o projeto performativo “Três percursos e um desvio para um mesmo fim”, elaborado em 2019 com parte da investigação “Dramaturgias do Quotidia- no: Especulações sobre a Dimensão Ficcional do Real” com orientação Prof. Doutora Sofia Pon- te. Investigação realizada no âmbito do Mestrado em Arte e Design para o Espaço Público da Fa- culdade de Belas Artes da Universidade do Porto.Partindo de minha experiência como cenógrafa em teatro, busquei pensar a dimensão da ficção no quotidiano e em ambiente urbano. O projeto performativo tem por base os trajetos diá- rios que utilizava para levar meu filho ao infantário, através de ruas situadas na freguesia do Bon- fim, no Porto. A proposta é constituída por quatro “percursos- experiência” elaborados com ins- truções para serem vivenciados por um grupo de participantes”. Para cada percurso, usei proce- dimentos distintos para explorar questões, tais como: a co-existência de tempos distintos numa mesma caminhada, o percurso pensado como narrativa, a multiplicidade de olhares sobre um mesmo trajeto e a ideia de desvio como um campo de possibilidades.Na contramão do automatismo do quotidiano “Três percursos e um desvio para um mes- mo fim” intenciona conectar os participantes a dimensão da experiência, da imaginação e a um tempo subjetivo. O projeto cria territórios híbridos que sugerem algumas ficções, sem as deter- minar inteiramente, provocando lugares liminares na paisagem simbólica da cidade.O texto que segue é a transcrição do audio-paper e foi adaptado para este formato especialmente para o Drifting Bodies-Fluent Spaces, pensado para ser escutado enquanto se caminha.

Palavras-chave:Percursos-experiência, arte por instrução, dramaturgia, quotidiano, walking art.
