Visualizing Embodied Research: Dance Dramaturgy and Animated Infographic Films

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This video essay introduces a new form of visualization of embodied research, called “animated infographic films.” In these films, techniques like motion graphics, 3D modeling and camera animation are used to invite the viewer to enter the choreographer’s studio. Here we invite you to come into the digitally re-created studio of João Fiadeiro and engage kinesthetically and empathetically with selected examples of his compositional and dramaturgical strategies.

These infographic films are based on the results of a study on three signature solo works from different stages of Fiadeiro’s choreographic work. The research has been carried out within the framework of the BlackBox Arts and Cognition Project.
