ABSTRACT

This study aims to identify the nomadic characteristics of the dancing body based on Gilles Deleuze’s thought concerned with time and space, and to illustrate this with actual dance works focusing on Decouflé’s「 Shazam」. For this study, first, the concepts of Ion and a smooth space were understood by centering on books by Deuleuze, and the theoretical background was prepared by looking into the characteristics of the choreography and the representative works of Philippe Decouflé. From these discussions, the temporality and momentary nature of a dancing body was able to be explained in the context of enabling unceasing changes and creation through the concept of Ion and a smooth concept. And this thesis was to suggest the basis for the discussion about dancing by closely relating the world of ‘simulacre’, which was emphasized by him, to art. Existing studies that have discussed dancing art by applying the philosophy of Deleuze haven’t been actively pursued relative to other art areas. Furthermore, the dance area also has merely introduced the theory of Deleuze, or has made a superficial initial application of the theory. However, this study is differentiated from previous studies because it understood the thought of Deleuze by focusing on his writings, books, and papers as well as his posthumous books, and discussed the dancing body based on the thought. This is meaningful in that it is able to extend the scope of dance aesthetics and draw out various topics of discussion by interpreting the dancing body at the level of dancing art, which was not dealt with by Deleuze.
