Wandering Dreamers: Drift

Śomi inspired by avant-garde strategy of city drift (Guy Debord’s dérive) invites wanderers for blindfolded walks already for few years in different locations and soundscapes. Her guided blindwalks provide a truly surrealistic daydreaming experience. These performative drifts based on 1:1 experience between guest-wanderer and guide-performer, include poetry, storytelling, improvisation and deep listening.

W A N D E R I N G D R E A M E R S is an umbrella project embracing happenings and performance activities designed by female artists from Poland, Sweden and Turkey. Despite the long distances, different social and cultural backgrounds, as much as various artistic experiences, the group shares a set of values, interests and concerns, which became the foundation for these programs. Our pieces are strongly related to spiritual ecofeminism, love, poetry and sexecology, therefore our ultimate goal is to deliver inclusive, immersive and enjoyable experiences, which will help you to reconnect with your senses, build deep understanding of nature and respectful connection with the festival community.
