Abstract

This article explores the concepts of mobility, transformation and re-location in relation to site-specific dance performance. Processes and practices of mobility are explored through a consideration of the triadic relationship between performer, audience and site encountered within the author’s site-specific dance work The Library Dances (2006). Through the discussion of a creative process, the article explores how the mobile, experiential interplay between performer, audience and site aimed to explore and challenge notions of ‘located-ness’, fixity and ‘place identity’.
