People move through space and the surrounding environment highly influence their way of moving.
Living in a city like London may produce a quite fast and frantic way of moving. Living in a small town you probably end up walking slowlier and in a more realxed way.
This is certainly due also to what you do where but architecture does shape in a way or another, our sense of space, our perception of our movement in that given space, be it a medieval church you pass in front of to go to work or a skyscraper you admire from the window of your office.
In dance this isssue get magnified as dancers do possess a sharper perception of space. How does an art based on movement relate to architecture and in particular to the architecture of a city?
At the the Biennale held in Venice the dance section is dedicated to this topic in different manners. Click for the English version on top of the page left. www.labiennale.org
