4 Mis-Guided Tours

Full Company

Central London (April 2006)

Created to coincide with the launch of A Mis-Guide to Anywhere, these 4 Mis-Guided Tours started and ended at London's Institute of Contemporary Arts.

1. The problem of shopping (Cathy Turner) - Rearrange the dreams on sale by reading stories in window displays, sight-seeing shop assistants, shopping for a fictional 'you' or exploring shopping nostalgia.

2. Out of place (Stephen Hodge) - A walk of coincidences, derived from overlaying a map of Paris onto London. What's where the Eiffel Tower should be? Where can we stop for a un Ricard?... [Blogged by Rodcorp here].

3. Scales (Simon Persighetti) - In a park or open city space: walk the dimensions of a paving stone; walk the dimensions of your dwelling place; walk the dimensions of your body...

4. Masses (Phil Smith) - A drift in search of spaces where the trivia becomes monumental and the monumental becomes cake decoration. A chance to give homage to the trinkets and fondle butchers in bronze. [Blogged by John Davies here].
