A Scene #14: Over and Under
On Saturday December 15, 2018 at 14:20 CET I waited for a tram in southern direction, at tram stop Leuvehaven (51°54’55.625″N, 4°28’56.857″E), Rotterdam. I stepped into the first arriving tram. The tram crossed the river Maas over the Erasmus bridge. I got off the tram at the first stop on the other side of the river: Wilhelminaplein (51°54’26.72″N, 4°29’34.756″E).
I then entered the Metro station and waited at the platform for a metro train in Northern direction. I took the first arriving train, and crossed the river Maas through the tunnel. I left the train at the first stop: Leuvehaven.

A Performative Walk #5
A performative walk as the base, as the method and as the outcome of a process of leading and following.
A group of people walks in a random direction. The person at the front is leading. When somebody wants to change the direction, he/she walks up to the front and takes over. The group always follows. Finally the group returns to the starting point (if somebody decides so).
During the walk nobody talks and telephones are switched off!
A Performative Walk #5 takes place on Monday 26 November at exactly 8:00 pm. If you want to join, please be at Hof, 3311 XG Dordrecht at 7:50 PM. Participation is free.
A Performative Walk #5 is part of De Grootste Tentoonstelling van Dordrecht in the framework of 400 years Synode.
