Making performance is making Place. As placemaking becomes the new suggested approach for shaping our urban environment, more attention is given to people's practices as generative of urban form. Drawing a parallel between the habitually practiced rituals of our everyday and the artistically directed performances, I suggest that the latter generates 'place' from 'space', giving symbolic significance and specificity to the abstract notion of an environment. What does it mean to consider performance making as placemaking?

Performance makes place for discourses, for the placing and layering of multiple narratives on a same platform which becomes contested. This contestation happens both physically and virtually as our spaces are also daily rendered by communication devices.

"[...] However, even if human bodies are subject to aging, death, and dissolution in the flow of material processes, it does not mean that human beings are also in flux. One can be born, live, and die under the same name, having the same citizenship, the same CV and the same Web site, remaining the same person. Our bodies are not the only material supports of our being persons."
