"Walk with Andrés"
Thursday 2 of November, Matadero-Madrid Square, 19:00 h.
“Walk with Andrés”
“Some Things from Somewhere” is a collaboration Commissioned by Naves Matadero-Centro Internacional de Artes Vivas, with Welsh artist Cai Tomos, the artists of Debajo de Sombrero and the British Council Madrid.
As part of this project the artists would like to invite members of the public to participate in a simple action.
‘Walk with Andrés’ is a performative and choreographic action led by Artist Andrés Fernández. The action involves a walk, in a direction that is unknown by the participants. The simple task is to follow Andrés, and be led. The walk will take place in silence, with a group through the city of Madrid for approximately 2 hours.
The intention of the walk is to highlight the following questions.
Is it possible to look at ourselves looking at the world as if for the first time? By putting ourselves in the place of the ‘other’ can we invite new perceptions?
The possibility of listening, supporting, following and giving space to a purpose which is not own might enable a re-considering of questions regarding ‘being in the world’ and what that might mean for those who are considered disabled.
