Dance - sign language

23 May 2011

Dance is a living language that a person speaks, it is an artistic generalization hovering over a real basis in order to express itself at a higher level, in images, in innermost human emotions. Dance is an ancient art. More precisely, it became an art form much later, and initially it had a sacred, ritual character. The change in the conscious and positive reality of the ancients always took place in music and dance. In fact, dance is the eternal companion of man throughout history. Over time, in Western cultures, dance has evolved from a form of social communication of self-expression into an art form, the purpose of which is to educate and amuse the public. In the 19th century, dance became a formalized means of expression, as exemplified by classical ballet. One of the first to contribute to the revival of creative dance was the famous dancer Isadora Duncan. Now dance and communication are inseparable concepts. However, it has always been so. The ancients carried out two-way communication with God through dance. People believed that through dance they become closer to God, they asked him for something, and God rewarded them with harvest, rain, sun for this. A ritual dance is a kind of drawing, a spell, a prayer expressed in body language. Dance can rarely become an addition to the word, it is rather its expression. Ballet is a typical example.

If you look at dances from the point of view of social psychology, dance contains a lot of important and valuable information about a person, about his individual characteristics, about his interaction with the outside world. For example, you can just watch how a person dances, moves to music in an informal setting, in a relaxed state at a party or at an anniversary celebration. The communication skills of a person who dances beautifully and well will differ significantly from the communication skills of someone who stands at the wall, hesitates and does not dare to invite a lady to a slow dance. The dance manifests openness to the outside world, the desire for novelty. The individual characteristics of a person can be traced, first of all, in the manner of performance, in the presentation of the dance. For example, dance can be mobile, fascinating, dynamic and amazing in its original characteristics. However, if it is performed sluggishly, without initiative and mediocre, then it is clear that this dancer is not suitable for such a dance, he does not have the characteristics that the situation requires. The mood and inner emotional background are reflected in the dance, and we observe this when looking at dancing people. Therefore, you can adjust your emotions through dance. If you teach a person to dance beautifully and harmoniously (physical aspect), you can increase self-esteem (psychological aspect) and improve mood (emotional aspect).

In modern dance performances, age-old traditions are no longer conspicuous, they are somewhat veiled, but there is a lot of work, hard physical work and, of course, the spirit of the times. From what they show us on TV (from modern dances), it blows with aggressiveness, impulsiveness, pressure - all this against the background of very fast, rhythmic music. But this does not mean that there is no plasticity, harmony and consistency in modern dance images. Both have their place equally in contemporary art. But when the negative becomes a little more than usual, it does not go unnoticed. Therefore, we can assume that the dance is a reflection of the era in which it is born. The language of dance, like the language of gestures, is universal.

Why does ballet need pantomime, and how is it to be understood?

If in the middle, at the beginning or at the end of a classical performance, the dancers suddenly stopped and began to make wide and absurd gestures with each other - without panic. Everything really goes according to plan.

Ballet pantomime is an important part of classical performances. And most importantly - logically justified. She came to dance from the drama theater: with the help of sign language, choreographers of the past tried to breathe life and emotion into dance, which was a static court art. And they turned, in fact, a very subtle thing.

The plot ballet tells a story, and the very grammar of this phrase makes it clear that it must be heard. At the same time, ballet is a visual art and works primarily on the territory of feelings and impressions. And here the words are not appropriate. You can even apply test rule : if what is happening on the stage can be expressed in words, then most likely you have a bad ballet in front of you.

Therefore, pantomime in a performance is a plot-forming link. She suggests how the action will develop now, and for the feelings of the characters (and the viewer), for lyrics and poetry, there is a dance that does not describe the fact, but influences it. Music should hide any extraneous sounds on the stage, and even the click of pointe shoes can sometimes be embarrassing, like something improper: something that pulls you out of the sensual world into reality.

That is why the plots of early ballets seem simple and hackneyed, like pop hits (forbidden love, unrequited love, betrayal, etc.). Nevertheless, they watch the performance not for information, but for the sake of experience. Pantomime itself has its own clear vocabulary, and, knowing it, it is easy to perceive classical performances as a whole, without dividing them into “talks” and dances. Let's look at short examples:

Swan Lake

Both fragments show how the main characters get to know each other, they are not yet madly in love, they have nothing to dance a poetic variation about, but these scenes are important for the plot and development of the plot. Already in these two examples, one can recognize the main gestures that are found in almost every ballet: pointing at oneself - I , at the other - you, touching the heart - love , two raised fingers of one hand facing the sky and to the auditorium, as to the altar - oath .

In the necessary dictionary there is also: hugging yourself - mother (look at the first act of "Giselle"), crossed arms with clenched fists towards the ground or a sharp movement of the fist to the heart, like thrusting a knife - death (this is how they plan the murder of Nikiya in La Bayadère), swipe across the face and kiss your fingers, like a French chef who praises the dish - beauty or youth (Aurora's father about his daughter in Sleeping Beauty), swipe over the forearms, as if pointing for long gloves - elegance , light touch of the fingers to the lips - conversation , and pointing to the ears - call to listen , touching the forehead and light movements of the brush over it, as if dispersing haze or fog above the head - dream or vision , rotation of the brushes above the head - dance . Knowing the meaning of the gestures, it is easy to understand the seemingly strange dialogue between Giselle and her mother:

The video below shows the dialogue between the sorceress Carabosse and the Lilac Fairy from Sleeping Beauty. The sorceress promises death to Aurora, but the Fairy changes the curse and decides that the princess will just fall asleep. The dancers use the same vocabulary but different tonality of articulation.

What was done with the pantomime " Russian Seasons" by Diaghilev , which, although they changed the form and plasticity of the productions, but also sought to make the performance dramatic? Here is what their first choreographer Mikhail Fokin writes in his memoirs about the ballet "Scheherazade": Shah Zeman sees that his brother Shah Nazar, having exterminated all the unfaithful wives, cannot give the order to slaughter his main, beloved wife Zobeida. He hesitates. Regrets. Shah Zeman is outraged by his brother's weakness, offended for him. What would he do according to tradition old ballet ? He would walk around the stage (circling around the stage is a common technique to get the audience's attention). I would point to the right. It means "you". Other hand to the left. It means "you too". Then both hands on his chest. It means "me". With both hands on your ears: "Listen!" Again on yourself: "I". A few movements in front of the mouth, as if something is pouring out of there: "I'll tell you everything."

Then there would be this “text” of the monologue: “When (pronounced by the artist to himself, but not expressed in any way) the night came (an angry face is made, the artist leans forward a little and joins his hands under his head, which means cover, darkness , night), here (pointing to the floor with a finger) they came (several steps, with hands pointing to different places on the floor, where each step of the walkers ends) one, the other, the third (showing one finger, two fingers, three fingers) blacks (the face is even more frowns to convey black, and is drawn over it with the hand from top to bottom).
