Geste’Stations- Les saisons du geste en scène

l’Université Paris, le Théâtre Victor Hugo de Bagneux

28 Mai 2016

For this first installment of "Geste'Stations- Seasons of gesture on stage," Edgard Sienaert invites us to a guided tour of the work of Marcel Jousse (1886-1961), a founder of the anthropological study of gesture as the study of "the living human." Jousse's work was rooted in his personal experience of a peasant childhood and the oral transmission of his mother and developed throughout his life by observing many cultures (the Palestinian milieu of the Bible, Native American gestures, Chinese ideograms, etc.). His comparisons allowed him to draw universal human laws for gestures from the variety of forms and languages.
