Abstrakt

Retoryki ciała oraz empatia kinestetyczna w grze wideo „Bound” (2016). Taniec występuje w każdej znanej kulturze ludzkiej jako część religijnych ceremonii oraz rytuałów społecznych. Zwiększone zainteresowanie rolą tańca w zachodniej psychologii koresponduje z założeniem przez Mariana Chace'a American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) i popularyzowaniem terapii tańcem (DMT). Stowarzyszenie ADTA wprowadziło taniec i ruch oparty na tańcu jako nieodłączną część procesu terapeutycznego. Czerpiąc zarówno z retoryki wizualnej (Patterson, Corning 1997), jak i teorii groznawczych (Fernández-Vara 2009) przeanalizuję różne warstwy narracji w grze wideo „Bound” (2016), ze szczególnym naciskiem na wzajemne relacje między graczami i grą (Keogh 2018) oraz na postrzeganie gry jako metafory procesu terapeutycznego.
