This is a very important question. The relationship between private and public zones is understudied and needs focus from scholars. Inner narratives, when revealed to public or to researchers, are significant keys to understanding the dominant culture(s). See what did American women do through "Me Too" movement. It revealed serious issues that were not discussed in public a decade ago. Now, women in different societies (cultures) in different places have started to narrate their inner narratives about harassment and sexual misconduct.
For the issue of dancers' narratives, you might read documents, interviews and published material (books/magazines) revealing their experiences. For fieldwork (ethnographic) study, you could apply "life-history" method to discuss narratives of selected dancers. I'll be happy to continue my discussion about inner narratives of Egyptian dancers later when time permits.
Do our inner narratives influence movement? YES. The inner narratives are the most influential factors in communication. Our inner narratives certainly reveals our culture and the world of movement around us. Our body tells a story, the body communicate indirectly and it speaks on our dressing, food, lifestyle as a whole. It tells what we are currently thinking and feeling. All this can be expressed in a dance or in a play.
here is an article i read recently though my interest in dance, the dancer/performance and subject matter in the artilce-outside academia. i will be glad to help you perform a literature review as i am sure there are many resources out there.
What does our internal narrative reveal about the movement and culture of dance?
I am not a specialist in arts or dance, but I will try to answer from the field of communication.
I think that dance is a ritual mechanism that allows expressing identity through nonverbal language at a specific time and space.
Do our internal narratives influence the movement?
Yes. Our internal narratives are the result of a cultural learning that determines our movements, rhythms, cadences, and expressions of the body in space, to tell, indicate or teach something.
If so, would the movement influence the narrative as well?
It's possible. If new movements are incorporated into the preexisting patterns, they require new learning of the movement, which transforms the previous forms of narration, especially if they are unconventional movements or from very different cultures. I think it must be understood that in order to incorporate new movements, it is necessary to know for what.
What do our internal narratives reveal about the culture and world of the movement around us?
The sacred and the profane, the official and the popular, the acceptable and the transgressive. They also reveal social and moral determination about the body.
Can you describe the process of doing dances so that they have utility beyond personal narrative?
Yes. Dance has developed technical processes for its learning and practice, over personal narratives. It can help develop certain sensitive areas through dance.
no- not at all --that is not what choreographed dance is-bad interpretation to say, "others can have decided before us and it is our duty to conform." so dance is only proper when we "...flail about and do whatever makes us happy ?" chorographed dance whether ballet, jazz, modern, etc is an art form , created by the arist-choreographer and yes with right moves that she/he has developed and wrong moves if they are not the choreogrpaher's. when i perfotm a choreographed dance i am most definitly NOT conformng.
The results of a study of two computer games, that use human movement as direct input, were analysed using four existing frameworks and approaches, drawn from different disciplines that relate to interaction and movement. This enabled the exploration of the relationships between bodily actions and the corresponding responses from technology. Intera...
Contemporary discourse embraces notions of human movement in space as occurring in both set, singular locations and also through many locations and ever-changing fields. Mobile conceptions of location and spatiality particularly relate to patterns of everyday contemporary life and are embraced in some artistic and performance practices. Graphic not...
A movement rehabilitation therapist must first diagnose the cause of disability and then prescribe therapies that specifically target the dysfunctional unit of the movement system. Objective diagnosis and prescription are difficult, however, because human movement is the result of complicated interactions among complex and highly nonlinear elements...
