Way Losing: A Guide to Getting Lost


This is a new work which will involve leading a group of people in an attempt to get lost. Both a practical experiment in getting lost and a reflection on the meaning and poetics of losing ones way, this is a somewhat open-ended day. The starting point is known, the end point unknown and only arrived at through the process of letting go and being subsumed into the city.


Way Losing is a new commission from Still Walking.




The Customer Is Always Wrong


These performances of the bilingual Mandarin & Chinglish travelogue and complaint against Air France / KLM, who have the worst customer service in the world, will be given in the outdoor stages of Lijiang. A number of discussions will accompany the performances.
