Minárová, Alica ; GREMLICOVÁ, Dorota (advisor) ; ELIÁŠOVÁ, Bohumíra (referee)
In my bachelor's thesis titled "Nudity in Contemporary Dance", I was concerned with symbolic of nudity in performing arts in recent years. Firstly, I defined the semiotic terms and also categories of using nudity on the stage. After, I analyzed performances of two important recent choreographers and two of my works. According to the analysis I tried to place each choreography into one of the defined categories and express its significance. I looked at nudity on stage not only from the point of view of meaning, but also from the point of view of the context in which it arises.

Rauschová, Anna ; GREMLICOVÁ, Dorota (advisor) ; NĚMEČKOVÁ, Elvíra (referee)
In my diploma thesis, I focused on textbooks treating about movement and dance methods based on the works of Émile Jaques-Dalcroze, Isadora Duncan and Carl Orff, which were published in our country between the years 1930 and 1989, on their themes and authors. I have followed the circumstances under which the textbooks were published, the institutions that published them and their contribution to dance and movement pedagogy. I try to point out the main topics of each publication, and to provide their subsequent analysis and comparison. The goal of my work is to present an overview of a wide spectrum of dance and movement methods and to try to find a common theme in them. In the conclusion of my work I touch on the subject of the importance of this teaching material for contemporary conceptions of dance pedagogy and I complement the overall context with a list of textbooks published after 1989.
