Ritual No. 5: PROMENADE Performed on September 20-22, 2013

INSTRUCTIONS

Two blindfolded performers walk around two hand rails linked at the ends to form a thin rectangle.

The performers keep one hand on either rail to maintain balance as each walks round the perimeter of the rectangle at fifty beats a step (beats based on the ticks of a metronome).

If performers collide they hold still for fifty beats.

After a collision or when a performer reaches either end of the rectangle he or she can make one of four choices and continue to walk:
Walk Clockwise Face Clockwise
Walk Clockwise Face Counter Clockwise.
Walk Counter Clockwise Face Counter Clockwise
Walk Counter Clockwise Face Clockwise.
