Katrina Neumann plans fictional trips with books from Elsewhere Collaborative's collection and travels through continents as she reads them aloud in parks around the city of Greensboro, North Carolina. Neumann invites strangers to participate in the performance by sitting and listening by her side. After the 10-hour allotted time (for three weeks, every Saturday) she packs up her suitcases and heads back to Elsewhere. It is just another day in the park.
There are sound bites from readings during the performance installed by GPS and Broadcastr (a smartphone application) in Fisher Park and Center City Park with instructions inside.
Andrea Rosen, contributing editor and art historian, has an additional feature essay discussing The Pleasures of Romantic Travel performances. Rosen's prominent essay, "Can I Change Your Saturday?," can be found at the closing of this catalog.
