Adapted from cultural geography, the dramaturgical notion of the 'dancing-place' denotes an affective sense of place in regard to a performance site implicating past and present, history and historicity, and relations of hosting and home. The notion furthers dramaturgical thinking about site specificity and lieux and milieux de mémoire to describe dramaturgies of relational history and geographical as well as kinetic returns. From Granada and Grozny to Wall Street, analysis of the dancing-place takes affective moments into account to offer new ways of thinking about how we make and watch dance, in the streets as onstage.
