Understanding animation as a multidisciplinary technique, this paper portrays substantial definitions unique to animated drawing in the cinema context, from a corporeal point of view.
Recognizing movement as a primordial problem for animation, the writing of this thesis drives into a reflection to remark the illusory nature of the technique. Besides the mentioned approach, for the author is also valuable to collect a knowledge that departs from the self lived experience of dancing and animating; with the aim of do that, and recognizing the situated knowledge concept from Haraway, the final part presents five resources: The call to action, The flesh camera, The animated body, The ceremonial body and Dance and animated drawing.
