Site-specific dance performance is a response by a choreographer to a particular location. That location, environmental or architectural, is the stimulus for performance. Though types of site (or location) and choreography will vary widely, two components remain common – the use of the site and its space. There is a specific interdependence between the site and the performance. Move the performance from the location and its significance will be either lost completely or weakened dramatically. The relationship between the spatial/experiential components and the choreographer and the consequent creative process leading to performance is the subject of this investigation.
