Ludus Festival Leeds: City Walk, 2012

A Quiet Word is working with the Yorkshire International Performing Arts Network to create a City Walk as part of Ludus Festival Leeds June 25th to 30th 2012.

The theme of the walk is Mutability. The kaleidoscopic history of Leeds, as of any great city, is one of perpetual change. Developers have overwritten the work of previous city makers; pedestrians wear desire paths into the grass and through flower beds. The smallest actions impact on the environment and the accretion of these actions change the cityscape for better or worse. The participants on the City Walk are themselves acting on the environment as they perambulate – or are transported – deeper into the city – and during the walk will be invited to make choices about the impact they make, for the present and maybe into the future.

The Walk is a work of imagination for sure, but en route, participants will meet a range of people concerned on a daily basis with the environment: scientists, city planners, residents and the artists of the Network.
