Walkways Summer 2012

A series of urban performances developed by FrenchMottershead with local Southwark residents

Walkways is a quartet of urban performed walks developed with different members of the Southwark community. The people FrenchMottershead have chosen to work with show varying degrees of control or conscious resistance, amidst the urban and socio-economic environments of their lives. Following the participants on their normal walks, FrenchMottershead have explored different ways in which we could intervene in to these every day acts and reframe them in to a performance which posed questions about where these people want to go and how they want to get there.

These collaborations aim to transform everyday actions into conscious performances, which are personal, poetic, and political and will resonate with most people’s experience of urban life.
