From the Goat to the Cicada : Platonic Works + Days
A performative walk / lecture by Phoebe Giannisi
Curated by the Milena principle - "Made of Walking"
To follow goat paths and find the cicadas. To desire. To sit or better lay down in a tree shadow. To drink. To hear to discuss and sing a song to be echoed in the cicada's house.
