Abstract

Choreographer Sara Giddens reflects upon how making a series of ambulant performance works, , invited her to dwell in space–times in-between, and how a resulting stepping aside heralded the opening up of a fundamental change in her relationship to audiences. Drawing upon a range of philosophers, including Bachelard, Heidegger and Rancière, Giddens reflects upon the impact that dwelling in those in-between space-times has had on her professional and pedagogic practice.

16 short video clips, taken from the Eight can be viewed at (https://www.bodiesinflight.co.uk/events/dwelling-in-between-choreographic-practices-102/).
