Practicing Space

Practicing space actively sought to explore the social and political position of the body in urban space through practical embodied research and performance.  Conceptualised and run by Beatrice Jarvis it formed an initial mode of choreographic investigation and analysis around key concepts of spatial meditation and investigation of spatial patterns to explore how public spaces are currently used.

This investigation was from a purely movement centered perspective, exploring the natural movement of bodies through space from a perspective which views the body as addition to the architectural construction of the space. How can the human body become reactant to its landscape; how can such reactions become research of spatial coding?
