Touching and to be touched: "movere" in dance (103)

Principal Investigator:

 

The project examines the question of how the various types of physical contact in dance are connected with the evocation of feelings. The intention is to examine the phenomenon of "movere" from a double perspective: as movement and touching of the body on the one hand, and as being moved/touched in the emotional sense on the other.

In three fields of inquiry - contemporary artistic dance, contact improvisation and tango - the relation between movement, contact and emotion is to be analyzed. The detailed investigation of different forms of contact in dance, in which sensor, motor and affective threads come together, demonstrates how Dance Studies can make a contribution to emotional research.
