Henri Lefebvre’s rhythmanalysis (2004) articulates space as an embodied experience of rhythms. His theory asserts the importance of the instant of ‘lived’ practice (Lefebvre, 1991).

Following a practice-as-research methodology, this chapter explores findings from a series of performances that have taken place in the UK built environment. This practice of free, improvised play is understood as a critique of dominant and normative rhythms in this setting.

This chapter asserts the bodily capacity to sense and respond to rhythm from external entities within close spatial proximity, and is a development of knowledge produced through the act of playing.
