Failure's guide to finding Tallinn (Instead, I found Finisterre)
tour : walking : psychogeography : guided expedition : urban exploration
17 June, 2014 00:00 19:00
Featuring artist: Will Slater

A walking tour of approximately 60-90 minutes. Meet at Ptarmigan at 19:00; the group will leave at 19:15 SHARP!

In the first performance of an ongoing project, 'What we've learned while walking', Will Slater leads the audience on his attempt at a walking tour of a city that's new to him. He will attempt to find some key historical and cultural landmarks of Tallinn, but with this being an exercise in psychogeography, he will most likely miss the important locations and instead tell you of the associations that he makes bewteen this city, and his memories of other travel destinations that occupy his mind.
