Walking Woman is a new Boschman/Dragu video that documents an all-day community participation performance. Beginning and ending on the steps of the Vancouver Art Gallery, a group of Vancouver and Richmond citizens put on their walking shoes and dance, walk, and celebrate the pedestrian and bus lifestyle.

Walking Woman = dance + live music + parade + tour + ecology + community + celebration and encourages the viewer to ask questions about the nature and limits of public art, spectacle, performance, community, and inclusion. Inspired by the visual art by Michael Snow bearing the same name, Walking Woman shows community art in action and is simply a whole lot of fun.

This title is also available in French.
