YoungArts is partnering with Marina Abramovic Institute (MAI) to present the Slow Motion Walk, a MAI exercise designed by performance artist Marina Abramovic.
Members of the public are encouraged to join performance artist, dancer and YoungArts alumna Brittany Bailey (2008, Dance), and trained facilitators to participate.
During her 40-year career, Abramovic has developed a series of exercises that encourage participants to test their endurance, concentration, mental and physical limits, perception, self-control, and willpower.
During this experience, the public is invited to abandon modern-day distractions and explore the boundaries of body and mind. Participants will turn off their mobile devices and enter an immersive environment. Exercises include “Slow Motion Walk”: walking as slowly as possible; starting with your left leg, complete these actions one at a time, lift your foot, stretch your leg forward, touch the ground, move. Repeat with the right leg. Lifting, lifting, stretching, stretching, touching, moving
