New Lagoon is a walk that was created for the MFA Program in Writing’s Friday Seminar course by Elastic City’s founder Todd Shalom (MFA Writing) and Ara Thorose.

Enter New Lagoon, a walk in San Francisco’s Western Addition. After stepping through a portal, participants will whisper wishes, bend themselves to the landscape, and occupy an island through site-specific rituals and exercises designed to expand upon our individual and collective poetic vocabularies. No swimsuit required.

About Elastic City

Elastic City intends to make its audience active participants in an ongoing poetic exchange with the places we live in and visit. Artists are commissioned by Elastic City to create their own walks. These walks tend to focus less on providing factual information and more on heightening our awareness, exploring our senses and making new group rituals in dialogue with public space.
