The River Dart, Devon 2013
Tri-A-Sloth took place on the River Dart, forming a journey from Schumacher College, Dartington to The Maltsters Arms pub in Tuckenhay.
Influences and extracts from Homer’s Odyssey, Alice Oswald's Dart and John O' Donohue's The Four Elements weaved into the physical route.
It was an early experiment in creating a travelling story that was highly experiential and closely related to the environment of the river.
Tri-A-Sloth travelled along the river by bicycles, a canoe and on foot. It took place over the course of 8 hours, with participants travelling in the direction of the ocean. The travel was based on the structure of a triathlon, but with an emphasis on the quality of experience over speed and targets.
