Abstract

Drawing on my experiences in dance, and developing on from research amongst a small number of other London based artists, I explore how the legacies of dualism might be seen as informing different artists’ negotiations of both the shared physical/temporal location of London in the ‘noughties’ and conceptually, that space which Thomas Csordas (1994) has suggested as the ‘terrain on which opposed terms meet’. While addressing how the artists’ explorations emanate from different cultural positions, the paper also suggests what some London based artists may share across difference.
