Light, a synergy between visual perception & movement (English)
Abstract [en]

Light comprises our visual perception that lets us experience and understand our surroundings. By studying how light affects us, our physical and emotional experience, the knowledge can be used as a tool within performing arts. The interaction between physical elements, the director, choreographer, and the performer on stage encompasses the final result. As a part, more consideration should be given to how us humans integrate, navigate and get affected by light. Regardless of the environment or conditions, light always has a natural position as an influential factor. The fact that light with its qualities could work aesthetically and functionally as a guiding feature is something that could be considered to work interdisciplinary. I.e. used in the composition of the stage narrative, or in the design of urban environments. In this study, thirteen professional dancers are seen in a lighting laboratory in three different lighting scenes. The experiment aims to see how different light scenes affect movement, as well as create an understanding of what establishes the ruling behaviour. To examine these factors, a positioning system is used, as well as half structured interviews. The results show that light and the shifting of light affects the performer on stage in a way that influences the movements and inspires the exploration of given space. The overall results show that a pattern can be found to present how the participants move in the room and the differences between how the room is utilised depending on the particular lighting scenes. The positioning system discovered that the light leads the improvised dance to a great degree and these findings were later confirmed by the interviews. What the dancers visually perceive influences how they interpret the given space which, furthermore, influences their movement.
