Abstract

Both geography and choreography are concerned with the movement of the body in
space, and in the context of South Africa, the geography of apartheid might be understood
as a legislative choreography. This article seeks to establish how aspects of geography
studies could be employed as tools to analyse the choreography of a South African
individual’s embodied experience both on and off the theatre stage.
