About Walk With Me
Mount Pleasant Group is proud to support Mammalian Diving Reflex’s Walk With Me While I Remember You on November 4 & 5 at Evergreen Brick Works. Moving through a nature path, we follow a series of young people as they direct us through the inexorable web of love, grief and hope. Vast, subtle and gently unfolding, this performance offers profound moments of meaning and glimpses of lives lived and lost. Through this one-on-one participatory walking performance, patrons will be led through a natural environment and given the space to listen, reflect and share. Walk With Me While I Remember You is a loving tribute to the joys and heartaches of life, family, and finding connections where we least expect.
