Rather than the ‘haunting’ invoked in the ‘host/ghost’ metaphor, the chapter proposes that Lefebvre’s idea of ‘monumental space’, and the ‘horizon of meaning’ which he proposes for readings of events in public space, allow us to rehistoricise, and hence repoliticise these encounters, and offers a means of analysis to the field site-specific theatre which transcends existing models of critique.
