この書籍について

Representing the first comprehensive analysis of Gaga and Ohad Naharin's aesthetic approach, this book follows the sensual and mental emphases of the movement research practiced by dancers of the Batsheva Dance Company. Considering the body as a means of expression, Embodied Philosophy in Dance deciphers forms of meaning in dance as a medium for perception and realization within the body. In doing so, the book addresses embodied philosophies of mind, hermeneutics, pragmatism, and social theories in order to illuminate the perceptual experience of dancing. It also reveals the interconnections between physical and mental processes of reasoning and explores the nature of physical intelligence.

著者について

Einav Katan-Schmid is a research associate at the Cluster of Excellence, Image, Knowledge, Gestaltung: An Interdisciplinary Laboratory, at the Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany. Her work with the research group “Picture-Act and Body-Knowledge” integrates choreography and somatic practices with philosophies of embodiment. She has been practicing Gaga with the Batsheva Dance Company since 2003.

レビュー

“Katan’s work offers the first book-length publication on the topic … which provided insights into the genesis, in-class practice, and vocabulary of Gaga. … Katan’s Embodied Philosophy in Dance is a useful guide for dancers from all disciplines who want to increase their awareness in the studio. Moreover, this book is a recommended introductory reading for those who still underestimate the legitimacy of dance as a source of knowledge.” (Melissa Melpignano, Dance Research Journal, Vol. 49 (2), August, 2017)

“Katan-Schmid (Humboldt Univ. of Berlin, Germany) explores the idea that dance is more than a conveyor of philosophical meaning. … This exhaustive investigation of Gaga will be useful to those seeking to delineate the inner workings of Gaga's physical, embodying process and how that process is manifested in performance. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals.” (E. McPherson, Choice, Vol. 54 (9), May, 2017)

“The book thus has relevance for both readers who specialize in one of the philosophical discourse methods and traditions incorporated as well as for dancers, dance makers, critics, and other readers who are used to describing and capturing a moving process and form like dance in words. It also provides a comprehensive resource for all philosophers of art who focus on artistic practice, performance, and stage- or studio-outward aspects of the art of which we are philosophizing.” (Aili Bresnahan, Journal for Aesthetics and Art Criticism, 2017)

“Katan-Schmid … adds a much-needed, thorough exploration of Gaga, highlighting its philosophical, physical, mental, sensual, imaginative, and perceptual possibilities. … Embodied Philosophy will be of interest to somatic practitioners and researchers, as well as dancers and choreographers. … Without doubt, Embodied Philosophy will be invaluable for current and future Gaga dancers and educators and scholars mining the riches of Gaga.” (Hiie Saumaa, Dance Chronicle, Vol. 40 (3), 2017)


“Throughout the many years of knowing each other, Einav Katan has - every time anew - articulated ideas that enable me to better understand what beforehand was hidden to me.” (Ohad Naharin, artistic director and choreographer, Batsheva Dance Company)

“This book might not only become a landmark in philosophical dance-studies but also in the philosophy of embodiment and enactivism in general, and in this an eye-opener towards spheres that teach a philosophy of and through the moving body.” (Professor Horst Bredekamp, the Collegium for the Advanced Study of Picture-Act and Embodiment, Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany)

“Philosophizing dance is relatively new, yet not entirely new. But human bodies enacting cognition? And bodily movements as materializations of knowledge? This is not only new, but groundbreaking. Einav Katan has written a pioneering book indeed.”  (Professor Moshe Zuckermann, the Cohn Institute for Philosophy and History of Science and Ideas, Tel-Aviv University, Israel)
