About the event
River Walk is a performance piece to draw and imprint movements as an action-painting through choreography. Through the artist's long-term research on the practice of Gutai, a Japanese post-war art collective, River Walk explores the intersection of dance and visual art. The artist takes a long and slow walk with trails left on the floor. Various ways of walking and traveling create an image of rivers and fluidity.
