I am interested to know....

I have been really interested in developments over the years in Mirror Neurons and Science based research on spectatorship or audience response, but I wonder 'what can science not explain?' and why are we looking to science to explain or prove what we know or feel within our bodies? There are n-number of things that might make my brain activity wild, equally my heart race and give my muscles a sense of action or cause my skin to sweat. So whilst science may prove these things it does not…

Mind Map Exploring How Audiences Watch Dance 1 Reply

As part of the Watching Dance project I have been developing alternative methods of both conducting and communicating research with audiences. Often when analysing qualitative audience research I produce large numbers of mind maps that I use to think through the material I am collecting. Usually these mind maps are private, with only the final written paper published. However, I'm interested in how these mind maps could also be public documents and have produced one trial mind map relating to…Continue

Hi I was wondering if anyone had any information on the conference that was held at Manchester Met Uni about 10 years ago.. it was concerned with defining what dance theatre was at the time. Any other links to research surrounding the understanding and defining of this ambigious term (dance theatre) would be most appreciated. ThanksbelindaContinue

Dance Genres 6 Replies

Hello! I am currently doing some research on how specific genres of dance affect an audience. My main theory is that rhythm heavy dances with intense emotional investment affect an audience more intensely than dances where technical control is key. So the main battle is Cherokee tribal dance vs. ballet or contemporary dance.  It seems almost obvious that more intense dances affect people more but is it right to distinguish the intensity of a dance by the rhythm and emotional ties. Obviously a…Continue
