Summary/Abstract: The inventiveness in the matter of dance techniques and esthetics are due to reconsideration of the fundamentals of choreographic art. Influenced by oriental philosophies, by the industrial progress, or by the terror and wars, postmodern dance used the basic human emotions like fear, cowardice and resistance in front of destiny, to reframing the technique, the sense and the significance of dance movements. The human body transcends from the hyper-organic ballet body to the abstract body, from the negation of the flesh to the technological body in contemporary dance performances. Many of the contemporary choreographers strongly believe that success is determined by the capacity to adjust to the unforeseen, and composing dances under the charm of the unexpected. Free associations of steps, swinging between symmetry and asymmetry of movements are characteristics of the new dance forms. In the newest dance performances, the dancer shall fill the stage emptiness with his/her physical yet spiritual presence.
