This chapter considers the ways in which distance can be accounted for and utilized in improvisational practices. It rejects the notion that proximal bodies in space are a necessary condition for productive improvisation. The chapter reflects on a number of early and recent experiments with telematic performance to locate ways in which distance and difference become important elements in the work to be brought forward rather than rendered invisible.
