Choreographer Sara Giddens reflects upon how making a series of ambulant performance works, The Dream-Walks, invited her to dwell in space‐times in-between, and how a resulting stepping aside heralded the opening up of a fundamental change in her relationship to audiences. Drawing upon a range of philosophers, including Bachelard, Heidegger and Rancière, Giddens reflects upon the impact that dwelling in those in-between space-times has had on her professional and pedagogic practice.
