Moving Bodies/Spaces: Current Perspectives of Dance Improvisation in Puerto Rico analyzes the dance improvisation practices and discourses of two Puerto Rican female artists, Ñequi González and Noemí Segarra. In this paper, attention is paid to the sociopolitical and historical contexts where González and Segarra have developed their careers as improvisers and entrepreneurs. In addition, each artist’s perception/definition of space in relation to her moving body is to her artistic work. How does each improviser define space(s)? How are their moving bodies related to their definition of space(s)? How does each artist’s perception of spaces influence her artistic practices and vice versa?
