When motion, concrete, flesh, and rubber boots collide and become entangled as site-specific movement, what happens to predominant, stringently developmentalist pedagogies of physical activity, motor skills, and dance in early childhood education?  Angie Simpson, in collaboration with Nicole Land and Veronica Pacini-Ketchabaw, led this project to interrogate the idea of ‘site-specific movement’ as knotty and politically complex connections with place that interject in movement and dance. Choreographed by slippery concrete stairs, rain showers and rain coats, and sunscreen-covered children, this project engaged with what might happen when choreography and movement become entangled, emergent, purposeful, and productive in the same place, space, and moment.
