This collection charts three projects by performance-makers who generate autobiographical writing by taking walks through inspirational landscapes. It includes performance texts and photographs, as well as essays by the artists that explore processes of development, writing, and performance. There are performances based on exploratory walking in South Devon, Munich, Herm and San Gimignano, a walk exploring 'an ethics of autobiographical performance', and multi-disciplinary collaborative processes. Taken together and separately, the work of all three artists raises important issues about memory, the ethics of autobiographical performance, ritual, life writing, textuality, subjectivity and site in performance.
