The following event forms part of the RAI's Bodies in Motion multimedia series.
Tonight's presentation explores the transformative aspects of Parkour through film-how one experiences, moves, connects and participates in the environment, challenging notions of normative behaviour, socialisation, identity and self-determining actions through explorations of the self. The films range from quiet observational pieces to montages and first person POV, reflecting Parkour as a multi-dimensional phenomenon. Through Parkour led films (as opposed to films about Parkour) this presentation aims to demonstrate how Parkour encourages self-reliance and mutual co-operation whilst enabling participants to reclaim the wonderment and magic of the human experience.
Presentation and Q&A with Julie Angel
