With this webinar, Nicole Harbonnier and Geneviève Dussault will present the Movement Observation Analysis, an approach they have developed after conducting a research project that involved specialists in two types of movement analyses, the Laban Movement Analysis and the French Functional analysis of the body in the dancing movement. Their approach is unique in that it pays attention to all the observation activities which support any movement analysis and it integrates functional and expressive movement dimensions. The crossover between the two approaches has made it possible, on one hand, to identify the processes supporting the activity of observation and analysis of the movement, by using the epistemology of the “Activity Analysis”; on the other hand, it offers a new conceptualization of the observable movement parameters which allow to understand the individual through the fundaments of their body, the phoric, haptic and expressive functions.

This event is presented by the National Centre for Dance Therapy and supported by the RBC Foundation
