Drift: Traces of You Gone Home
Drifting is a playful walk without destination, wherein participants take turns leading each other through the urban landscape. Players listen to a synchronized soundtrack. Drifting has a few simple rules, but is not a game you can win in any traditional sense. We drift for the joy and pleasure of getting lost, following the impulses of our fellow players, taking part in a shared atmosphere through music, and experiencing the city in a novel way.
Drifting invites us to relate to the city and our co-drifters through the means of movement. It allows us to experience the city in a poetic, sensuous way. Sometimes we move slowly, sometimes quickly, sometimes we dance, or we stand still and let the atmosphere sink in.
The Drift, originally created by Thom Kiraly, Mikael Vesavuori and Nika Persson, is part of the Cultural Protocols series and therefore bound to its Open Culture policy. That means that we cannot ask for mandatory payment from our participants. If you feel like helping the facilitator and Relational Spaces financially, a donation is most welcome!
Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes that are suited for the weather on that day. We will be drifting for 3 hours which means that we will move a lot.
We follow government regulations and recommendations around COVID-19 and do our best not to further the spread of the virus. We ask you to do the same:
- Please do not show up to events if you have symptoms of covid-19.
- You are required to have a valid corona-passport to participate in our events (for most people this means being vaccinated or being tested within 72 hours of the workshop you are going to).
- There is a test center in Fælledparken, close to Relational Spaces, where it is possible to be quicktested.
