A middle-aged man, looking a little manic and like he’s ready to hike across the country, bounds onto stage and launches into song.
What follows is Camino Man: a performance about the time Steve Wilson trekked across the north coast of Spain on the Camino del Norte. It’s a story told through monologue and slideshow of Wilson meeting a number of people along the way who help him make sense of his recent experience of becoming single, losing his job, and being physically assaulted while walking home one afternoon. As Wilson says, “It’s a story about discovering your smile, finding love, saying sorry, and finding peace with trauma.”
Camino Man is produced by stevprodukt as part of the Sydney Fringe 2023.
