Visualization Techniques as Methodological Tools for Dance Research

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Dance Research is a term that refers to the methods and methodological approaches used in dance studies, a relatively new academic discipline. In this paper we describe how visualization techniques can be used to help the dance researcher visualize in a more intuitive manner the concepts underlying a choreographer's work. We describe tools developed for and used by researchers interested in improvisation and dance research, and we provide practical examples of how they were used to analyze choreographer Joao Fiadeiro's Real Time Composition (CTR) Method.
