A Performative Walk 2
Performance project 

A performative walk as the base, as the method and as the outcome of a process of leading and following. The work is a series of five successive daily group walks. 

Every walk starts at the same place and at the same time of the day.
Initially we repeat the route of the day before and then any participant can, at any moment, speed up to the front position and guide the group into another chosen direction. During the walk there is no discussion, nobody speaks, all decisions are made by moving faster or slower.
The walk ends when the group returns at the starting point.

A Performative Walk 2 takes place from December 2 to December 6, every day 18:00 at Municipal Market, Nicosia (CY).
A Performative Walk 2 is part of Urban Emptiness Nicosia 2017.

A Scene #9

On Saturday, November 18th, 2017, at exactly 14:20 CET, I will enter a department store at Hoogstraat 185 , Rotterdam (5155.2323,N,00428.9270,E).
I will walk straight on to the menswear department and will select three jackets. I will go to a fittingroom and try on the three jackets.
The first jacket will not fit my size, the second jacket will not fit my taste, the third one will not fit my budget.
I will then return the jackets to the clothes racks and leave the store without spending any money.
