Each of these areas of interest has considerable implications for understanding the role of place in tourism. A performative approach to place accounts for the role of the body in the production of space and therefore the significance of embodied practices to the enactment of place. Embodied enactments of place highlight the varying and often unequal agencies acting in place, attending to differing and often contested ideologies that continually (re)produce representations. These enactments of place, then, are not bound to particular, insular spaces but cut across and connect places. Thrift (1999, p. 310) states, “places are ‘passings’ that ‘haunt’ ‘us,’” that is, places take shape only in their passing-they haunt us and we haunt them. Thus, places are articulations of presence and absence, and as such, can never be pre-ordained (Thrift, 1999). Indeed, in the context of tourism, the places performed through touristic practices stay with us and we remain connected to them, as they become points in constellations of places.
