My Playground - Urban Space!

Check out this short film by Kaspar Astrup Schröder that explores the way Parkour and Freerunning is changing the perception of urban space and how that space is changing the traceurs and freerunners.

Mainly set in Copenhagen the film follows the making of the first dedicated parkour park in the world, designed by the danish team, Team JiYo.

"What's fascinating is the way of transforming the city. Because you can't change it physically—you can't go and move the light post or the staircase—but you can change the way you are looking at it and the way you use it. And in that way make it your own." —Signe Højbjerre, freerunner, Team Jiyo
