The workshop described in this article responds choreographically to geographer Nigel Thrift's challenge that non-representational theory is best interrogated through performative means (Thrift 2007). The workshop constitutes an experiment in interweaving theory and choreographic practice in such a way as to give full value to both. Taking the form of a series of movement activities interspersed with a spoken discussion of the theoretical concerns inherent within them; the workshop addresses concepts of topological space and cartography through movement itself. The theoretical focus of the workshop adopts the Deleuzian concepts of the diagram and affect as central conceits, and draws on the work of contemporary geographers and theorists of space such as de Certeau and Lefebvre.
