Calendar

Elastic City produces and presents artist-led walks, talks, ways and performances for the public. All of the work is participatory. The walks tend to focus less on providing factual information and more on heightening our awareness, exploring our senses and making new group rituals in dialogue with public space. The talks aim to undo the hierarchy of conventional artist talks in order to better situate participants inside of an artist's work. Ways are experiential workshops that explicitly engage participants in poetic decision-making. The performances often rely on a score that invites the audiences to become co-creators of the work.
