BLIND WALK —a durational co-walking–
Performance by Adonis Volanakis
Curated by the Milena principle- "Made of walking"
How do I trust? How can I trust? Does it happen when a stranger and myself cross paths? How can my feet trust another? Meeting a stranger sharing a dream bringing a psychoanalysis chair upright. How do we walk and talk in our dreams?
