Welcome to the Flaneurs’ walk.

Here’s a small introduction to let you enjoy the walk at best.
The city tour will be guided by Daniela Porro, a professional tour guide.
Daniela was born in Andria and lately came back and settled down in her hometown.
The tour will be a way for her to experience once again various places around the city and to organize her historic, artistic and urbanistic knowledge.

We invite you to play.

The guide will pretend to have been asked by a Web TV to carry out a reportage about the city. She will also pretend to be alone and to walk around Andria looking for places and events to report; she will think out loud as if you weren’t there at all.

It is of the utmost importance for you to be aware that the Guide will comment on what she sees while she walks, so it’s important that you stay close to her, as if you looked at things from the same point of view.

The only rule in this game is that everyone in the audience has to identify with the Guide by sharing her perspective and her thoughts.

You will be given headphones in order to facilitate the listening. The Guide may walk fast or slow according to her will; we invite you to adapt to her pace.
You will enter some privately owned spaces where actors will intervene and play a number of characters.

We ask you to be very close to the actors, as if you almost wanted to touch them: They will be playing for the camera, so the closest you are, the better you’ll hear what they say.

Don’t be afraid to stand in the way of others or hinder the view of the audience standing behind you. There will only be 15 people and we’re confident that everybody will manage to hear and see very well.

A small tip: when listening to the actors try to take off your headphones. The quality of sound improves without headphones because the sound is enriched by the peculiar effects given by different places. Unfortunately, headphones tend to dampen sounds.
However, it is up to you to decide. We reckon that listening without headphones provides a more interesting experience.

The walk is about two hours long, we added some more streets to the initial path which was meant to last one and a half hours. This way the audience will gain an even better insight knowledge of Andria’s old town.

Besides headphones, you will be given a Flâneur cap to wear when reaching the starting point of the walk, which is the San Lorenzo alle Fornaci church.
We kindly remind you to set your phone on silent.

Thank you for your kind attention.

Enjoy the walk and the show!
