Kinaesthetic empathy in spectators of contemporary dance
As a dancer and frequent dance spectator, I have always been interested in the way audiences connect with dancers when they watch performances, as well as the way dancers themselves relate to their audience. How do we communicate with spectators? What do they perceive? What are the differences between a dancer and a non dancer in the way they see dance? Can anyone relate to dance?
To answer these questions, I undertook a research project about kinaesthetic empathy during the academic year 2014-2015. The outcome of it was twofold: part of it was a written work, and the other half was a presentation.
