Walking the Unknown Path

My performance is about traversing a path with an unknown route or destination. It explores how to navigate unchartered places or experiences, much like we are doing in this current pandemic. I walk on a pilgrimage toward myself, nature, the unknown and an “other” place. The walk creates and holds space for my fear, courage, isolation, refuge, gratitude and mortality. I am garbed in protective gear typical for front-line workers during the covid-19 era—a mask and Tyvek suite. Strapped to my back is a chair with the words of the 23rd Psalm burned into its seat. This pandemic has brought the possibility of death to the forefront for many of us. These uncertain times have given me cause to think about what must not be left unsaid before I die.
