Ethnochoreological themes: origins, conceptions and dance complexity

The research of dance and dance forms continues with the foundational ethnochoreological studies of the roles of performers and mediators in the explanation of cultural, gender, group and various spatial (such as institutional, non-institutional, theatrical, local, regional and national) and other identities. These are observed as reflections of social changes and events with the possibility for explanation of numerous cultural themes and meanings. We will include the themes such as rituals, performativity, art, competition, recreation, professionalism, amateurism, gender, aesthetics, identity, originality, modernism and intangible cultural heritage. Dance interpretation enables the realisation of multiple ideologies of bodiness and embodiment. Therefore, the thinking about and analysis of particular dance forms will be realised in different approaches to the body, its treatment, representation, building and education, capturing the ideologies and philosophies which emerge in a dance. Through the analysis of dance processes. performances and media in which bodies are realised, connections will be explored and interpreted between the symbolic and material, (re)presentation of the body and embodiment as experience.
