From talk to walk
From talk to walk – a poetic journey in eight scenes.
A free call 0800 number was the inspiration for an innovative performance which fuses spoken word, dance and drama. It all started with an ad in paper recommending that you ring and talk to yourself about your relationships: your relationship with your self, with your loved ones, relationship with your work, relationship with your place in this world. I wanted to ring so many times, but never had the courage. I knew so many people who also wanted to ring but never made the call. So, we dropped the numbers, swapped talk for a walk and changed relationship into love – that is how it all began.
