By connecting to the intelligence of the moving feeling body, through movement-based practices, individuals and communities can find opportunity for re-embodiment, which, in turn, can lead to personal and collective healing, transformation and liberation. It is argued that holding physical and safe spaces for people impacted by oppression to be re-embodied is critical to nurturing collective creative capacity and self-determination. Both creative capacity and self-determination are necessary pillars in sustaining the belief that one's oppressive condition can be changed. As a community-based arts space that utilizes dance and performance as the terrain upon which social change occurs, CounterPULSE serves as a demonstrative case study to look at the intersection of movement, space and re-embodiment.
