This is a guide that introduces some of the thoughts and theories that define the fields of Escape and that of its cohort, Distraction. The guide delves head first, hoping to affect discussion about how escape and distraction can be utilised in relation to art and performance, and how escape can, if at all, function as a tool for instigating cultural, social and political change. The questions raised within the guide are wide ranging; they look at: how the self is seen and dealt with in escape theory and practice; how a pejorative view (of escape) can be debilitating  to the escapist and what advantages can be found in the study of distraction and the generative practice of walking-as-art.

The guide will be available for viewing shortly.
