This chapter studies various spaces, from the mid-west and Chicago, to the north-eastern states of America. It first examines the spaces of The Music of Chance, where a mansion in rural Pennsylvania is used as the setting of a ritualistic and bizarre poker game that rids the nomadic protagonists of their freedom. This chapter also shows the way travel and movement can consist of a series of situated and relational selves and describes film, dreams and flight as utopian spaces.

Keywords:   spaces, freedom, travel, movement, situated selves, relational selves, film, dreams, flight, utopian spaces
