Dance and Science: The Role of Intermediatic Poetic Movement as a Pathway for Scientific Divulgation in the Contemporary Arts Realm
André Meyer, Ana Célia de Sá Earp, Adalberto Vieyra

This work reflects on the creative intermediatic choreographic composition process developed during the making of a multimedia dance performance for scientific divulgation purposes.

Contemporary art is analyzed as an interactive and plurisensorial art, emphatically multimediatic and performative. The present work applies the Helenita Sá Earp Dance Fundamentals in the choreographic aestheticization of sub-molecular, molecular and cellular conformational and structural changes that are found in the copper homeostasis model used in “Transitions” multimedia dance performance. Just as François Dagognet values the union of image and scientific information in his epistemology, this article points to an intermediatic movement poetics as a pathway for scientific divulgation in the contemporary arts realm.
