a project run by the Centre National de la Danse, which offers a comparative exploration of the functional analysis of dance movement, focusing on rhythm, tempo, movement, and tools for teaching music and dance. This project focuses on the interaction between rhythm, bodies, dynamics and temporal organisation, the characteristics of tempo and movement, and the relationship between time and gravity.
a project in relation to the functional and qualitative analysis of movement undertaken by the University of Quebec in Montreal: an investigation concerning the practice of the functional analysis of movement, with the aid of experts from the North American and European continents. The aim is to refresh views and analytical discourses concerning dance movement and explore the potential for movement analysis to feed into aesthetic discourses in the performing arts and open up the discussion on the contribution of movement analysis to various fields: dance, theatre, music, kinesiology, ethnography, psychology, therapy, etc. This project is led by Nicole Harbonier, a lecturer in dance from the University of Quebec, in Montreal.
