MILIOLI, Danielle  and  GALINDO, Dolores. Dancing the visuality of a poem and the emergence of bodily properties. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2016, vol.6, n.2, pp. 134-145. ISSN 2238-152X.

This paper discusses the bodily properties produced in a dance-research experiment titled De Conceitos (On Concepts) created from a visual poem written by Silva Freire. Through the process of invention within this dance-research project, we offer an account of how bodily properties in dance come to be produced and try to render visible the minimal-and possibly dismissible-gestures which are lost when dance is viewed on a panoramic scale. Thus, it is a matter of a narrative imbricated into a broader problematisation, as put forward by Latour (2008a), with respect to the on-going conversation on the body and the modes by which these are mobilised in narrative accounts of what they do. We work a narrative of the minimal, which is transversal to the polar opposition of micro and macro, in an attempt to relate the emergence of bodily properties as events through which we can trace the effusion of difference which makes the body sensitive and in turn co-constitutes a body which is not given a priori.
