Approche critique du "corps disponible" dans le champ chorégraphique : une contribution à l'étude des modes de structuration du monde de la danse par l'entrée de la diffusion des savoirs

Abstract : Very often nowadays, the dance community addresses the following formulation: «available body». Taking an overall look of the transmission process of the making of a dancer, it is suggested that in dance a well rounded performing body is not a body customized to artistic requirements for a codified dance anymore, but a body whose adaptation would paradoxically lie in both esthetic and physical great plasticity. What can this new dance body concept induce on choreographic transmission – and beyond - on today's neoliberal society? The study first examines the context of the emergence and enforcement of the available body idea. This thorough investigation on the construction of a dance body in the 20th century reveals that there is a connection between the available body cultural production and a certain idea of freedom. What is then the actual meaning of this term? In order to answer this question, the second part of the study involves an almost two year ethnography undertaken with companies creating new work. The observation of the use of the body in work context, between dancers and choreographers, provides information on this knowledge-practice available body: it is used by the dancers and choreographers to develop new corporealities. More specifically, the way the availability of the body is brought up to date in the daily creative work process in dance is examined, testing the hypothesis that the body regarded as available within the professional field is never isolated from the Bourdieusian disposition concept. We will thus discuss how do availabilities and dispositions adjust themselves so that to make intelligible this available body knowledge. The last phase of our study will be devoted to the development of this knowledge: How do dancers use this available body knowledge in the profession? And how does this knowledge disseminate to other areas of practice?
