Beginning of 2013, I volunteered in Singapore for a weekend for one of AMMA's events. It was my first encounter with her. I was amazed that there were ~1000 people waiting in a hall that seemed like an empty warehouse for about eight hours - just to
Urban Scenography: Emotional and Bodily Experience DOI: 10.3846/20297475.2013.808453
Abstract: "The idea, that spatial configurations produce comical and critical situations by encouraging certain “choreography” of its users, is brilliantly developed by Jacques Tati in his films (Mon Oncle (1958), Playtime (1967) and others). In his turn Michel de Certeau develops the idea, that city space is “actuated by the ensemble of movements deployed within it” (de Certeau 1984: 117). For a moving body a city emerges as a configuration of obstacles and their absence, which influence the routes and the rhythms of a walker.
The idea of interconnection between spatial configurations and scenarios of everyday use of it was developed by the Situationists who proposed the concept of unitary urbanism (Chtcheglov 1958; Kotányi, Vaneigem 1961). According to them, spatial structures produce certain type of behaviour as well as emotional experience and constellations of urban elements are able to encourage citizens to participate actively in the reorganization of urban surrounding.
As an analytical tool, the concept of urban scenography reveals the interconnections between spatial configurations and everyday scenarios that take place in urban settings. On the practical level, the concept of urban scenography as a dynamic set of city elements (which includes even temporal and accidental items) appears to be a tool applicable for revitalization of underused public spaces."
"Three workshops were held in 2011 in ten communities, two in Associations new to Jungle Mamas. Trainings included 57 age-and gender-diverse participants who were highly engaged with our newly developed curriculum and teaching booklet. Workshops were increasingly led by the most experienced team of Birth Attendants from two original communities.
Through the workshops we identified many new people who want additional training to become skilled Birthing Attendants and peer teachers."
