Research Interests
Continental Philosophy; philosophy of sports; humanities & cultural studies; dance history; archaeology & phenomenology of the body; corporeal semiotics & embodied philosophy; memory & trauma studies; eroticism, desire & mimetic theory; intersection between psychoanalysis, literature and film; phenomenology of vision.

As a result of a very rare bodily and intellectual disposition, Gabriella Daris is capable of being a mediator through movement. This is of great importance for the arts and sciences, for education and rehabilitation; because only through movement can the mediation from psyche and body, from mind and body, and from inner world and the environment succeed. One should not put his trust in Nietzsche, who never developed bodily movement, poetic pictures or any stories for that matter. Fairytales, myths and sagas all contain her fascination through the inner emotions of the narrator, and for this reason while reading, like monks wondering, like Aristotle’s students running and above all the changing tempo, this is what one learns, when Gabriella moves. Wonderful!

Prof. Bazon Brock, Art Theorist & Critic, Dada House - Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich, February 18, 2008

Her awakening solo had a stretchy sensuality and linear elegance...Daris made the slow evolution of body sculpture powerfully engaging, her remarkable fluidity creating a kind of undersea lyricism.

Lewis Segal, Los Angeles TIMES, May 28, 2007
