WalkSquawk: The Walking Project is a performance, mapping and cultural exchange project collaboratively developed with US and South Africa-based artists during a series of residencies in Detroit and KwaZulu-Natal from 2003 through 2006.
The project explores ‘desire lines’ or paths made by people who walk across fields in South Africa and across vacant lots in Detroit – and what connects them.
By examining how changing patterns of movement can alter attitudes and perceptions; how people make their own paths; and the influences of culture, geography, language, economics and love, The Walking Project asks how and why people’s paths cross and how taking a different path might alter a life.
“I’ve worked with Linda in many capacities. First, as a fellow actor, then an agent and casting director, and lastly as a film director. Her charisma transcends anything that can be taught in a theatre school. Working with her on my drama short Home Again was one of the best creative experiences in my life. Her innate talent and instincts brought to my character more than I could have ever dreamed of and she’s just plain fun to work with.”
