Pågående projekt "Aesthetics of contemporary Movement and dance"
The project aims to examine phenomenological and aesthetic dimensions of contemporary movement and dance and discuss relations between expressive form, experience and creation of meaning from the perspectives of theories of subjectivity, cultural analysis and existential psychology. The collection of data are undertaken as fieldwork in performance spaces and laboratories of dance, video analyses and qualitative in-depth interviews. Analysis and interpretation is based on modern theories of aesthetics, phenomenology, theories of subjectivity and existential psychology and hermeneutical cultural analysis. Main questions are: What forms of
movement and dynamics are characteristic of contemporary movement and dance scène? What body paradigms come to expression in different body-and dance techniques? Which themes are manifested? How can movement as expressive
form or style be interpreted?
