Docklands Tagging

I reminded myself today that while it’s great to have time in the DanceHouse studios, the point of this research has always been to place my choreographed movement in the urban space in Docklands.

‘Urban space’ is a vague and general term since I’m not sure where I should turn up and pass through. I saw this corner today near the Spencer Dock development. The advertising hoardings around the development have been tagged by some graffiti artist and the boulders that protect the scruffy triangle of tarmac reimagined as televisions, radios and a more glamorous rock.

It feels like it could be a place for me to fetch up for a little while as the cars speed past – it’s already a little oasis of someone else’s creativity, and I wonder how my melancholy movement will absorb the cartoon sunniness of the graffiti.
