WITH THE PARTICIPATION OF
STUDENTS OF THE NAUKMA
Imaginary Itinerants is a participatory performance practice that proposes to explore through sand the intersection of historical narratives of Podil and one’s own memories of travel. Lines and landscapes on sand from the Dnipro will become the starting points for a psycho-geographic journey by participants, who will gather at the former Bursa — student dorms at Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. Like the medieval itinerant pilgrims, Imaginary Itineraries invites modern travellers to take a trip through time and space and pave their own path on the sandy surface - to the history of Podil, their own memories and imagination.
