Strands of Eastern Thoughts and Creation in Western Contemporary Dance

  •  Mariana Baruco Machado Andraus    


This essay is part of a graduate thesis defended in 2021 at the University of Campinas (ANDRAUS, 2022) on the development of creative processes in contemporary dance inspired by different types of Asian body training experienced by the author over three decades. From this experience, the author reflects on the concepts of technique, permanence and interiority in dance and highlights possibilities for creative dance procedures involving the quoted repertoires, from a Western composition perspective.
