Abstract

This project titled ‘An investigation into the dancer’s choices in performance, specifically considering the role of habits within repeated performance’ consists of two equivalent parts: a lecture demonstration and a written document.

The focus of this research is on investigating the dancer’s choices in the performative practice in relation to the concept of repetition and habit. The intention is to reveal the mechanism that regulates the decision-making process, through the analysis of the experience of performing a piece several times and how dance, as a dynamic system in constant transformation, might affect the dancer’s choices.
