Exploring the abstract language of contemporary dance in order to create emotional states/nuances
Buday, Csaba Steven (2006) Exploring the abstract language of contemporary dance in order to create emotional states/nuances. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This study investigates how a choreographer, through the abstract
language of contemporary dance, generates emotional states/nuances
which can be recognised but at the same time allow for ambiguity in the
reading of the work. This investigation was addressed through a series of
performance projects, culminating in the final dance work Inhabited Space.
The setting for the work, triggered by Bachelard's The Poetics of Space,
became the imagined spaces of a domestic urban environment,
specifically the lounge and bedroom. In order to create a work reflecting
emotional states and nuances, a range of choreographic processes were
explored to inform the construction of movement vocabulary, framed by
performer/space/object relationships. This studio-based study with
performative outcomes was supported by a hybrid methodological
approach of predominantly practice-led research, incorporating aspects of
action research and phenomenology. Findings and understandings
emerged from reflective practice in the exegesis but were primarily
embedded within the creative work itself.
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
