“wandering is not about
travelling to distant lands, camping, moving fast, getting ahead, material
wealth, religion, dogma. Wandering is a state of mind as well as a physical
act. To wander is to enter into a space of existing solely in the present
moment. The presence of body ”
Kerry Smith, The Wander Society
dans#wanderer (2017) Bucharest, Romania
dans#wanderer is a project directed by Romanian choreographer Cosmin Manolescu, in collaboration with Judith State and Idris Clate and myself on the video aspects. It takes the concept of ‘wandering’ and asks how we can wander more in our lives and with our bodies.
Through a British Council Artist’s International Development Award I was able to work closely with Cosmin to develop a series of video portraits and moving image works that have become part of the ongoing danswanderer performances.
