Abstract of the dissertation

Spatio-temporal and behavioural structures are a subject matter for both urban studies and ethnocoreology (analysis of organised movement) since they contribute to the definition of and bear influence on the behaviour of the inhabitants and the interactions between them.

Urban planners define the space for interaction that inhabitants use for living in society or in communities.

In celebrations and traditional dances, the dancers firstly determine the space for interaction and then use it for “moving together”.

While urban planning deals with determining spaces for sustaining social life, dance and celebration involve elements in continuous redefinition in order to find renewed social contracts.

The analysis of traditional celebration, a moment devised to reinforce communities, may thus help us to re-think the urban structure so that it too may contribute to social cohesion and regeneration.
