RODRIGUEZ, Manuela. Entre ritual y espectáculo, reflexividad corporizada en el candombe. Avá [online]. 2009, n.14, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1851-1694.
This paper analyses the Candombe dance from Montevideo to reconstruct a kind of reflexivity present in a festivity performance which is, in terms of space and time, halfway between the ritual and the spectacle, and where the corporal aspect plays a fundamental role. The term embodied reflexivity is used to characterize a kind of transforming reflexivity in subjectivities, which takes place no only in conscience but in a "total" subject. From an approach that intertwines a phenomenological with a structural analysis of established representations in black Uruguayan women, we aim to understand the re-articulation or the signifiers in practices and discourses, mainly in the re-formulation the performance makes possible. As a liminal event that allows a sensory-perceptive opening, the Candombe dance produces subjective transformations in dancers, primarily because this experience involves body participation and a peculiar kind of embodied reflexivity.
