Body, Space, and Emotion: A Perceptual Study

Published in Human technology. 2017, vol. 13, no. 1, p. 32-57
Abstract The present study aims at providing a systematic account of emotion perception applied to expressive full-body movement. Within the framework of the lens model, we identified the decoding process underlying one's capacity to categorize emotions while watching others' behaviors. We considered the application of Laban movement analysis, a method focusing on qualitative aspects of movement. An original experimental setup used a contemporary choreography interpreted by four expert dancers in an environment that restricted their movement to their peripersonal space. Each performance consisted of a subtle or intense emotional interpretation of the choreography (e.g., happiness, anger, surprise, fear, and sadness). Results showed that emotions being expressed in this confined environment could still be identified, categorized, and associated with a profile of movement qualities and specific body parts. © 2017 Donald Glowinski, Sélim Yahia Coll, Naëm Baron, Maëva Sanchez, Simon Schaerlaeken, & Didier Grandjean, and the Open Science Centre, University of Jyväskylä.
