CASTANHO, Pablo. A psychoanalytical perspective on the usage of circle dances as instruments for group work. Vínculo [online]. 2017, vol.14, n.2, pp. 70-83. ISSN 1806-2490.

The term "Circle Dances" is used in reference to the tradition initiated by Bernhard Woisen in which folk dances are rescued, reinterpreted, and used as inspiration for the development of new dances. The Circle Dance movement has been growing around the world and has gained significant strength in Brazil. This article aims at proposing a psychoanalytical group perspective, which can orientate the usage of Circle Dances as instruments for group work conducted by analysts. It is a theoretical research within psychoanalysis, supported on an epistemological approach in which the reading emerges from the meeting between the text and the reader. Accordingly, the author's previous clinical experience with Circle Dances acquires a central place within the article's methodology, guiding the selection of the texts, while sustaining the option for the psychoanalytical concepts in debate. The article's proposal is that Circle Dances particularly mobilize the syncretic sociability dimension while argues that the system dance-music-explanations can be understood as a mediating object. It concludes with some recommendations for the use of such an instrument by psychoanalysts.
