DUBOIS KITSOU, Dance and Weightlessness: Dancers' Training and Adaptation Problems in Microgravity, Leonardo, Vol.27, N°1, pp.57-64, 1992

In this article the author discusses astronauts' problems of adaptationto microgravity in relation to dancers' body perceptions of space and time.Space sickness hampers the pleasures of being free from gravity; it alsohandicaps space-mission programs. To prevent space sickness, astronautsare submitted to a training program that is primarily physiologicaland medical. The author is developing a new training system (complementaryto existing training methods), based on dance techniques, for improvingthe physical consciousness of astronauts -focusing on the body as subjectiveexperience.
