Performance and space

Jacques Lecoq from his book 'The moving body' " Any living space has 'dramatic possibilities' and influences the behaviour of the people who enter it or the characters who perform in it. A change of place modifies all our attitudes and behavour, down to the pace at which we walk. We walk around differently on a visit to a gothic church from the way we walk around a romanesque church." For the Pressmen it is important to have a sense of this idea not only for our own behaviour but in order to get a feel for the way the guests move in any space. It is useful to think of different spaces as part of the theatre of an event. It gives clues to the behaviour of guests and the ways we can interact to maximise rapport. Different spaces effect the way we can behave some are more e.g. reverential.

Too many words but an interesting idea.
