Clarissa was a site - specific promenade performance in London, 2019, created by Ruggero Franceschini, Ray-Pei Yu and Anqi Zhao. A small group of 15 people was exploring an itinerary inspired by the novel "Mrs Dalloway" by Virginia Woolf. Bits of the novel, set in London, were pre-recorded from random people, exactly in the streets of London they were taking place: during the promenade, in such places, the audience was listening to this soundtrack with headphones, while following a guide and performers playing characters from the novel.
