Series of performance walks and actions designed by Gustavo Ciríaco with Corey Nuffer, Patti Rego
and Rhonda Fazio
, to be experienced during the act of strolling. Each walk is organized for 5 audience members at a time and planned to last around 1h and 1h15min. The project was built through an online workshop with volunteers who individually or in group conjured up each an idiosyncratic walk in the city of Fall River’s urban territory.ONLINE REGISTRATION FORM
All walks have limited participation and require registration. Meeting point shared after registration.Corey Nuffer: As Water Falls
In 1962, part of Fall River’s old city center was demolished to make way for Interstate 195 and the new Government Center. Yet, the city’s urban transformations go away back in its history, much before the sixties, to a time there were many waterfalls in the Quequechan River (‘water that falls, that leaps’ in Wampanoag language). How did these famous waterfalls that named the city of Fall River used to look like? With this curiosity in mind, this walk challenges the participants to imagine these long-gone waterfalls freely.\Patti Rego: Greetings from Fall River
A walk through old postcards of Fall River. The public is taken through the city center in a visit through the same spots portrayed by old postcards from Fall River and challenged to take part as figures in making new postcards on the very same locations.Rhonda Fazio: See Through my Voices, Smell Through my Eyes
A sensorial deambulation through the nature along the Quequechan River Trail, considered a fresh breath of Nature in Fall River, cherished by locals as a place for leisure and drifting, as a vivid fauna and flora cohabit in its surrounding wetlands. Using a varied set of perspectives, memories and histories, Rhonda guides us through the landscape we see and the ground we step upon in a synesthetic and poetic deambulation.
