Embodied Map (EM) is a method that uses the body as a cartographic and choreographic tool to map events happening in urban settings, in their geometrical and temporal extensions. This method allows artists, performers, designers, researchers and anyone with an interest in field-work practices, to transform the experiences of observation and embodiment in the urban space into a choreographic score. This experimental cartography is intended as an artistic practice using maps not as mere two-dimensional and objective reproductions, but as something creative where the body becomes the tool with which to experiment with new ways to represent space. EM Tools enable artists, educators and researchers to create their own works, using tools that integrate theoretical research and allow investigations of the relationships between urban mapping and performance practices in a systematic way. EM also may be adapted as a teaching method for use in workshops with adults and children.
