In this audio-walk, participants accompany a female protagonist through a park area at dusk. She embodies the spirit of fictional and real women who claimed their freedom to walk alone in the city and at night, thus challenging the restrictions and conventions of their culture and time. The audio piece mixes narrative, text excerpts, music, found footage and field recordings. The sun sets while the participant walks, bringing out other qualities of this environment.
“Refusing to be the object of anyone’s gaze, she decides to walk into the park at the fall of night. Directly within the city, yet isolated from its busy streets. She enters this space with the intention of becoming completely invisible, merging with the surroundings in a strange half-absence of the body.”
