Walking Backwards with Alex Cecchetti


Artist, poet, choreographer and gardener Alex Cecchetti presents the incantation, Walking Backwards (2013-ongoing), specifically re-conceived for the eight-acre, historical garden of the little-known and enchanting Myddelton House, once the home of gardener and botanist Edward Augustus Bowles. Inspired by the remarkable biodiversity of the vegetation, guides lead audience members, one by one, on a backwards walk. Accompanied by the whispers of a guide, as plant species, pathways and thoughts come into unexpected view, Walking Backwards weaves together dream, botany, poetry, intimacy and trust. Part of the General Ecology project.
