DESCRIPTION

 

Peregrinus is a site-specific performance/installation, which explores the act of walking, and of being ‘abroad’, for performer and audience alike. 
 

What if the starting point for this journey is refusal? Walking defines a direction but the end point is never achieved. What if the contemporary invitation is not to leave your bed and walk but to pick up your bed and walk? In other words, to take with us in our mobility an anomalous stillness; and to walk alongside our supine, horizontal and impulsive selves. Each new step a fall or a stumble, caught up, recovering, in dance.

 

The English term 'pilgrim' originally comes from the Latin word peregrinus, which means a foreigner, a stranger, someone on a journey, or a temporary resident. It can describe a traveller making a brief journey to a particular place or someone settling for a short or long period in a foreign land. Peregrinatio was the state of being or living abroad.

 

 

Peregrinus is produced by Onassis Cultural Centre Athens / Fast Forward Festival and supported by Firkin Crane, Laban Theatre, Metal Southend and the Duncan Research Centre for Dance.
