Inversion? Circus Hand-Balancing and the Discourse of the Upright Body

Publié en ligne: 04 Jul 2022
Pages: 4 - 15

Résumé

Abstract

In the history of the body, upright posture has been the theme of philosophical reflections on human nature and the object of scientific explorations and practical measures ensuring social norms. It is even possible to locate a certain discourse of the upright body as a model for understanding what it means to be human. However, humans have long experimented with the opposite: the inverted position. The handstand is probably the epitome of this endeavour to invert upright posture. Within circus performance, hand-balancing has been developed into an art form of its own. This article examines how hand-balancing relates to the upright body. The article argues that circus hand-balancing participates in the discourse of the upright body in a paradoxical way, both inverting and reinforcing it. The article argues that this is expressed not only on a representational level but also on the technical and experiential levels of the practice.

The drama of contemporary dance in Latvia and the dance performance Out

Publié en ligne: 04 Jul 2022
Pages: 16 - 22

Résumé

Abstract

Based on Henrik Ibsen’s famous drama Brand, Olga Žitluhina’s dance performance Out (Ārā, 2013) presents certain parallels with the choreographer’s artistic and pedagogic strategies and the development of contemporary dance in Latvia. First, both Ibsen’s play (often also defined as a tragedy) and Žitluhina’s pedagogic activities trace the pursuit of personal ideals as a journey of overcoming mistakes and physical and mental challenges. Second, just as the tragic protagonist of Brand and Out can see beyond what ordinary people can see to predict and envision the future, Žitluhina has a vision of contemporary dance in Latvia and has worked tirelessly since the mid-1990s to develop this genre from scratch. She has contributed to dance with many major initiatives: establishing a professional dance association; producing dozens of dance performances; leading the artistic direction of the international contemporary dance festival Time to Dance; and creating a study programme at the Latvian Academy of Culture dedicated entirely to contemporary dance. This creative process has always been accompanied by funding difficulties, organizational problems and negative attitudes towards Žitluhina, her personality and her uncompromising artistic stance. Inspired by Olga Žitluhina’s dance performance Out, this article explores her contributions as choreographer and teacher to the development of contemporary dance and art in Latvia.

Kollaborativ danskonstnärlig process – en övning i demokrati

Publié en ligne: 04 Jul 2022
Pages: 24 - 31

Résumé

Abstract

This article refers to an investigative study of a design in a creative project at Estetiska programmet Dans at an upper secondary school. The didactic choices, tools and methods used in the project was analysed from a design­for­learning­perspective. The study was exploring how a design in an artistic collaborative process can provide knowledge development in an artistic process. The data was analysed by using the vocabulary of Staffans Selander (2017), such as dialogical approach, domain specific knowledge, and meaningful context. The result shows that Value Clarification/Rundan as a method in combination with deliberative conversation can provide and develop knowledge in creating dance as well as a practice in deliberative democracy.
