Abstract
This research poster examines embodiment within participatory performance events, ranging from theatre experiences to protests. This research uncovers how characteristics of embodiment such as moving, situating and sensory engagement are similarly at work in theatre as they are in protests by making abstract concepts concrete through embodiment. Using a crafted theory of temporal embodiment, the transformative power of embodied participation in such events becomes clear as participants can address the past, act through their bodies in the present and change the future.
