This work examines the function of dance as social apparatus and reflects on practices that enable dance to become a social vehicle for individual expression. My case study, developed in the City of Derry (NI), demonstrates how site-specific choreographic practice became symbolic of political expression in the dimensions of social and collective memory. I consider choreography as a mode of social expression that can perform cultural critique within spatial and architectural environments.
