Walking the Riddle is an ongoing walk-work with shadow performances.

An audience is invited to walk with me some part of a pre-determined route. Walking together allows some experiences and themes to be shared and framed over time. The “Trubba” sack contains fragments of puppets which I use, at the destination, to perform a brief shadow play on interaction and relationships. The puppet pieces, gathering power on their journeys, embody feelings and experiences. Their sound and play is specific to the journey and the audience.
