Tradition och interpretation: En hermeneutisk studie i att levandegöra en dansad tradition

Abstract [en]

Relating to the documentation of folk dances is and should be a premise even for contemporary folk dancers, but relating to it as a final truth that only needs reconstruction leaves little room for the individual. This study addresses the question off how to relate to the documentation in a way that allows the dancer to experience a given dance form as being alive. Building on hermeneutics I suggest that this is possible when the answer to the dancer’s quest of interpreting the dance is not given. I have together with four chosen folk dancers examined Senpolska from Medelpad, a very well documented polska form, trying to get as close to the documentation as possible. Based on this I have investigated how a method for interpretation effects the given dance form and alters the dancer’s experience of the dance. The study shows that the suggested method of interpretation offers a feasible way for the dancers to always experience the dance form as new. It even has a pedagogical prospect of helping students incorporating a dance form as their own, and widening their capacity of expressing themselves through a specific folk dance form. The method of interpretation as a way of engaging in a dance form offers a way to be a part of a living danced tradition.
