Intériorités/Sensations/Consciences : sociologie des expérimentations somatiques du Contact Improvisation et du Body-Mind Centering

Abstract : This inquiry considers two different somatic practices coming from the same cultural context: 70's in United States. One emerged whithin Postmodern dance experimentations — Contact Improvisation —, the other belongs to the “somatics” field (Hanna) — Body-Mind Centering. Both practices experiment discourses, knowledge and experiences on the binding of body and mind. The inquiry aims to document the ways practitioners, thanks to their inner sensations and specific training of their attention, allow their “interiority” to transform into a place for practicing and learning, or even into a public space. I intend to describe these practises as practices enhancing an « inner sense cultivation » (Luhrmann) revealing the opportunity for what we normally call « interiority », « sensation » or « body consciousness » to exist in other « versions » (Despret). Somehow, it just points out a recurrent question: “who does the dancing?”. And it brings another one: How could we force ourselves to detail our answers so that these new ‘versions' might start to vividly enter the dance?
