Sunday Stick

Sunday Stick extends the rule-based, improvisational work in Sunday Walk achieved in our regular Sunday morning sessions in Thompson’s Park in Cardiff, with the addition of walking sticks and umbrellas to support, extend and frame the body.

Sunday sticks were the golf enthusiasts’ answer to the discouragement of golfing on Sundays in Scotland. Clubs were disguised as walking sticks and on country walks golfers would reverse the stick to play a few strokes.

Going for a walk together, in pairs, in groups: copying and emulating, playing a few strokes.

Always keeping two metres apart.

(ca. 20 minutes)
