Topography maps︎︎︎
Creating these maps are a great parameter to give participants when they are working with moving in space. They might have a small movement motif or gesture base that they can work with on a specific trajectory through the space. We often see great ideas in the space with no real specific direction or relation in the room. These maps make this clear. We have played with everyone creating a map of their own, putting it in the middle of the room and then choosing a random map in the pile to work with. It's also great to have 3 or 4 work together on executing their trajectories simultaneously. This can create great intersections and interactions along the way. It's a good idea to mark the map with a center spot and quarter marks so there can be easy landmarks.
