Walking the Edge

Participatory performance
May 1, 2020 – May 15, 2020


A walk is a multitude of thoughts, felt through the rhythm of the body in motion. Walking the Edge is a participatory event inviting New Yorkers to encounter and reflect up on New York City’s 520 miles coastline, to embody the reality between solid and liquid, constructed and unconstructed worlds. This 24-hour-a-day consecutive walk will discover the ground truth of the waterfront: its functions, paths, and impasses. New Yorkers are encouraged to explore the edges of their urban waterways, the opportunities that exist and roles this space can play.



In collaboration with Works on Water and the New York City Department of City Planning, Waterfront and Open Spaces
