Subtle Architectures Subtiles is a series of performances created for the city and intended for the public: a process wherein a performer places her body in hidden and abandoned city sites to magnify details, and engage public space socially and physically. The variation of this process proposed for the context of Montreal, included a series of actions in various sites where DARE DARE’s trailer had been located since the beginning of dis/location. Participants were invited to join in these performative walks: to magnify the impact the environment had on their gestures and daily social interactions, alter perceptions of these spaces, and to highlight the human capacity to adapt to spatial-temporal constraints.
