Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The article ‘Sensorial document: An embodied practice in dance and philosophy from collaboration in After Kaprow: The Silent Room by Rosemary Butcher (2012)’, consists of an approach to a dance and philosophy practice, through the lens of analysis of Gil’s philosophy, and aims at reflecting upon the notion of danced gesture and its formation through a change of scale from a macroscopic to a microscopic level of the corporeal phenomena. The embodied practice in dance and philosophy exposed in this article features a translation of sensations and images of dance experience into verbal language – sensorial document – followed by a philosophical analysis of the procedures that led to the formation of danced gesture and its transcription. This research was developed from dance collaboration with choreographer and visual artist Rosemary Butcher, in the context of the piece After Kaprow: The Silent Room (2012).
