Considering dance practices as unique cases in interdisciplinary research studies

Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review


The aim of this paper is to present interdisciplinary considerations of relevance to strengthen dance research in relation to – and in cooperation with - other academic disciplines. I firstly describe how dance practices can be handled as “extreme cases” and cases with “maximal variations” (Flyvbjerg, 2011) in the domain of qualitative research. Such designs are of specific relevance for research projects exploring body, movement and sensing in general. Thereafter I present the results of some of my resent studies. These studies are based in a critical constructive interdisciplinary combination of observations of dance practices and phenomenology.
