An elaborately costumed dancer performs a tap dance ritual accompanied by a musician. Traversing a variety of locations and performing on surfaces le Flneur directly and indirectly affects the public. Bells, horns and sirens attached to the performer enhance the unintentional encounters and encounter with those gathered to view the performance. The traditional way of travelling by foot has long been the mode of transportation for minstrels, vagabonds... and le flneur. Flneur derives from the Old Norse verb flana, which means 'to wander with no purpose : a deliberately aimless pedestrian, unencumbered by any obligation or urgency'.
