Abstract: Parkour today is a global subcultural scene that combines street withmedia practices. Parkour consists of a local moment, fundamentallyconcerned with the materiality of the street, and simultaneously of a globaldigital discourse, which involves millions of parkour actors. While thespatial knowledge requires a very close knowledge and tactile contact ofthe surface’s nature of space, the media representations seem to reflect anopposite image, namely the detachedness of space. In this chapter, I willaddress the question of space-making and spatial practices in Moroccoand the relation to parkour’s visual representations.
