In the context of the increasing use of new spaces for choreography and new modalities of choreographic practice, such as the generation of choreographic installation spaces and screendance, this paper proposes that theorists such as Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, Brian Massumi, Manuel deLanda and Susanne Langer, Michel de Certeau, Henri Lefebvre, Doreen Massey, Nigel Thrift and Paul Rodaway offer a rich resource for a discussion of choreographic space. In this paper the notion of choreographic space is predicated on the conception of space as a dynamic, relational concept, and suggests that choreographic space is constituted as intensive space, a transient spatiotemporal network of forces, vectors and tensions, processual rather than stable and, crucially, experiential. It further proposes that extensive and intensive space are by no means oppositional forms of experiencing space, rather they are co-present in any experience of choreographic space whether that experience is of participant, performer or audience. The paper thus argues that choreographic space is an in/extensive space, one that interlaces the dynamic textures of qualitative space and the stable features of material space within a process of reconfiguration of the latter’s affective contours.
