Urbanité ludique et cultures sportives : analyse de quatre pratiques physiques de l’espace parisien

Abstract : Taking back urban and peri-urban sites is part of the evolution of contemporary sports cultures. It is marked by the emergence of alternate sportstainment practices (urban speleology, parkour, street golf etc.) that do not take place in dedicated venues. Such physical practices, truly innovative games, widen the array of cultural practices and mobilize what we have come to know as playful urbanity. In order for the reappropriation of urban spaces to take place, the body and sports techniques (running, gymnastics etc.) need to adapt to new locations : streets, parks, gardens, places, tunnels and buildings. This reappropriation strongly contributes to the development of a playful legitimacy as it unites participants into an active and self-organised community. The identification and the right to the city present us with two distinct logics of action : urban sportstainment practices take place in locations that can not be seen (invisible) and in locations that can (visible).
