Podcast: Dialogues: Movement and Space

Published 9 April 2015

In this podcast, a choreographer, an architect and an historian explore how our perception and comprehension of the world is shaped by the body and movement.

  • Recorded at a recent panel event at the RA, this podcast explores bodily experience – how our perception and comprehension of the world is developed through the body and movement – through conversation. Bringing together varied knowledge and expertise in dance, architecture and urban space, the discussion explores new links between these disciplines and our experience.

    Dr Oliver Mould, Lecturer in Social and Cultural Geography at Royal Holloway University, author of the blog taCity, and Urban Subversion and the Creative City (forthcoming in April).
