Their Shoes

Their Shoes by Aki Sasamoto

The East Village, forever gentrifying, still retains its characters. If one wants to dig deeper into the psyche of this neighborhood, a confrontational approach might greet you unkindly. In “Their Shoes,” Aki Sasamoto will lead participants through Tompkins Square Park using indirect observational techniques. The group will engage in peripheral viewing, following and mimicking exercises for empathizing and co-existing with others.

This walk holds 12 people. "Their Shoes" will be held in English but Aki also speaks Japanese.
