Abstract

We reflect upon our involvement in Do You See What I Mean?, a sitespecific work of contemporary ‘street theatre’ presented as part of Vancouver’s 2013 PuSh International Performing Arts Festival. A collaboration between a geographer and professional artists, the project involved engaging audience members in a 2.5-hour blindfolded guided tour of the public and private spaces of Vancouver, Canada. The work is considered as a site staging sensual urban journeys, giving cause for wider reflection on recent experiments in geographic thought and practice.
