Abstract

The project investigates how public perception of interstitial urban spaces could be elicited and recorded through Performing the City - participatory 'walkabout' performance practices produced and staged for specific urban sites. Interstitial urban spaces are 'forgotten' underused spaces awaiting public re-imagination and interventions. Following an ethnographic study of the UK theatre company Slung Low's Mapping the City production in May 2011, the authors reflect on how the research propositions should be refined to better capture the transient transformative potential of spatial urban mapping through performing the city.
