There are no individuals. There aren’t even separate species.
Everything in the forest is the forest.
-Richard Powers-

A walk in the forest takes you out of the cultural time frame and context.

You are with yourself, with your body. You decide your pace, your rhythm. Perhaps also that of the group, if you walk with others. «GOLD» is a walk in the woods, framed by documentary voices on the subject of grief. «GOLD» creates a local and temporal space for this ‘being alone together’. It is not intended to absorb grief. Not to silence it. It is intended to give it space, a voice, an awareness, a natural place within the time of life.

«GOLD» is a ‘silent walk’, a performative walk that brings together sound, movement, forest and people.

«GOLD» is for people who have already experienced grief and for those who are yet to experience it.
