Fieldworks explores the manifold ways in which performance shapes and is shaped by landscape and environment, and offers modes of understanding how places are encountered, imagined, evoked or transformed through human and non-human activity. Places urban and suburban, rural and industrial, spectacular and overlooked, everyday and enchanting, remembered and contested, protected and degraded, enacted, looked at, moved through, worked on and lived in. Working in and across a diverse field of disciplines and practices, contributions from artists and scholars examine the complex ideas, feelings, experiences and concerns – physical, sensual, emotional and cognitive – evoked by landscape and environment, as imaginative representations, material realities and arenas of public concern, through both embodied engagement and critical apprehension.
