Performance-Parkour or 2PK is the integration of Parkour’s movement principles and core values within a performance for an audience, whether live or recorded. It can be considered a choreographic language. Critical to Performance-Parkour is the aim of communicating beyond the skill of the discipline and creating a dialogue with and within its practitioner community and audience. It does not describe a display or demonstration of Parkour. The UPG Team founded the 2PK Network with Arts Council support at the ART OF DISPLACEMENT symposium at Pavilion Dance South West in 2013.
