    The Landscape of Competition constructed in Linguistic Contents of a Reality Survival TV show Dancing9 Season 2

    Kim Sue In | 2014, 51(6) | pp.1~24 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This study investigated a reality survival TV show Dancing9 Season2, conducting a contents analysis of its linguistic contents. The data collection included transcribing ten episodes of the show. A cumulative coding process yielded seven categories, one of which was competition. The category of competition and its subcategories were weaved through a thematic narrative. Competition was accelerated by dramatic expressions such as war, mortal enemy, battle, survival, etc. Participants used “bad” and “fearful” strategies and speech acts. Participants competed not only with the opponent team(s) but also within their own team. However, the reality TV show with auditioning format brought in another layers of competition, which was constructed by the vote of the viewers. Viewers focused on participants’ personalities, which include consideration, concession, and team-spirit as valid components for competition. Since the show took in viewers’ votes in determining the winner, amity and reservation constructed the landscape of competition along with rivalry.

    Implications of Visual Anthropology for Dance Studies

    Jeong, Ok Hee | 2014, 51(6) | pp.25~47 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    Problematizing the meager discourse of visual media and the visual within dance scholarship, this research aims to present a general introduction to visual anthropology and to suggest its implications for the benefit of dance studies. Introducing its general history and characteristics, I trace how visual anthropology has departed from the naive realism and positivism to more reflexive and participatory mode of inquiry. The observation that visual anthropological attempts in dance scholarship is much more limited than those in anthropology provokes the main question: Why, while undergoing the same postmodern shift with anthropology, did dance studies pay little interest in visual media? I argue that universalism on body and seeing, as well as dance’s alleged ephemerality and its contingent focus on preservation discourseprevented the healthy discussion and exploration on visual media. Refuting both, I examine the possibilities and threats of reflexivity, the core of postmodern visual anthropology.

    A Study of Preservation and Variation of the Original form of Kim Paik-bong’s Dance

    Ahn,Byung-Heon | 2014, 51(6) | pp.49~67 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This study adopts a method of 'Practice Based Research' in order to examine the researcher's experience of the meaning of Kim Paik-bong's dance works. The process of re-creation of her dances involves expression techniques that intervene the original form with emotional and affective differences. Observing the variations, this research questions whether those variations should be considered as transmutation or development. Discussing the issue of what the definitions of the original form of a dance are and which variations could be considered acceptable, this research suggests that a dance work does not need to be a taxidermied form but a living form that allows numerous transformations and transfigurations. Rather than identifying the noticeable characteristics of Kim Paik-bong's dances, this research focuses on the ways of studying and approaching her dance world, which could contribute the discourse on art research method and art education method.

    A Study of relationship between Soon Seo Han’s the Buddhist Dance and Rhythm

    LeeJuHee | Yang, Hyo-Soon | 2014, 51(6) | pp.107~120 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study analyzes each rhythm of the Buddhist Dance, which was passed on from Tae Heung Kang to Soon Seo Han, and discusses the relationship between the rhythm and the dance move for the purpose of identifying the aesthetic characteristics of Soon Seo Han’s the Buddhist Dance. There are three main findings in this study. First, the dynamic and dramatic effects are emphasized through a type of Korean traditional dance move. Second, there are some unique dance moves that cannot be observed in the other versions of the Buddhist Dance. Third, Soon Seo Han’s version of the Buddhist Dance follows a dramatic narrative format based on the theme of ‘a Buddhist monk’s anguish and return to his religion’ and this format is the most distinguishing feature of her dance. Soon Seo Han’sversion of the Buddhist Dance possesses scarcity and value as it employs the dramatic format, a rare feature in Korean traditional dance, while continuing the legacy of the Nun’s Dance.

    Jisun Lee | ji-won Lee | 2014, 51(6) | pp.121~135 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    Recently, a variety of live contents, raging from the performances of operas, plays, dances, and pop songs to sport games have been screened in theaters. The new concept of “alternative content”, “event cinema” or “ODS(other digital stuff)” has come to the fore. These contents integrate live and the recorded contents through a filmic language and 3D technology. Alternative content provides differentiated experience to audience by maximizing the sense of realism by using the upgraded 3D technology. In addition, it explores its possibilities as a new content by presenting them as new profit model to theater owner. This study aims to discuss the aesthetic changes or prospects and the trends of producing the art of dance as alternative content in the new film market.

    Effects of Self-Expression with the Rosen Method for Extinction of Negative Behaviors in an Educational Dance

    Kyung-Ho Chang | Yoonha Chung | 2014, 51(6) | pp.137~151 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This is an experimental research to verify effects of a dance education for the levels of conversation skills such as gestures, attitudes, and verbal selections. The dance education program was constructed to develop physical awareness based on the Rosen Method that included programs for acquisition of habit patterns and relationship between movement and bodily work. An experimental group was controlled by behavior modification techniques such as conditioned reinforcement, extinction, and modelling. Results were as follows: first, levels of undesirable gestures during conversation for the experimental group were significantly decreased. Second, levels of undesirable physical attitudes for conversation of the experimental group were also significantly decreased. The results indicated that samples of the experimental group in the movement awareness program recognized relationship between one's movements and environmental changes after experiencing his/her own habit patterns.
