The organization of research in the Dance, gesture and corporeity team (formerly “Laboratory for the analysis of discourse and practice in dance”) is hinged on a dual axis : 1. History and aesthetics of the choreographic field ; 2. Critical approaches and anthropology of processes, practices and techniques. Its contributions are divided into several categories : history of XIXth - XXIst century dancing techniques and gestural practices, analysis of movement, analysis of choreographic works, analysis of reception, cultural and choreographic transfers, dance - society relationships. Engaged in dialogue with contemporary creation, with the artistic and political concerns of the professional scene as well as the various trends in dance-studies, the team focuses its research on the gesture itself, viewed from the dancers’ practical skills, and its linkage with the contexts where it is produced.
