This research has arisen out of the interest to study the trajectory of the Hungarian born, naturalized Brazilian dancer and teacher, director and choreographer Maria Duschenes (1922- 2014). Our interest is in the historic aspects as well as in the artistic and pedagogical ones. We present the enfoldments of her work in the introduction and development of modern dance in Brazil. Duschenes worked in São Paulo from decades of 1940 to 1990 and had an important role in the reception, introduction and development of the labanian´s and dalcrozean´s proposals in Brazil. Despite its great importance, her intellectual, artistic, pedagogical, political and social work has been little explored in the academic field. Duschenes wove webs of knowledge evolving important names of the artistic european avant guard: in Budapest, she studied at Olga Szentpal`s school (1895-1968) in Jaques Dalcroze’s perspective (1865- 1950) and with Aurel von Millos (1906-1988), both crossed by labanians´s knowledge; in England, with Rudolf Laban (1879-1958) and his collaborators and partners Kurt Jooss (1901-1979), Sigurd Leeder (1902-1981) and Lisa Ullmann (1907-1985). Drawn in these universes, Duschenes developed as an axis of her work the improvisation of the movement aiding with transformations in the artistic scene, in pedagogy, in research, in therapy and in rehabilitation. For that purpose this is a work of qualitative and exploratory nature, which includes field research as well as documental research. It has being built with the objective of tracing the vestiges left by Duschenes as well as the vestiges and memories of her former students and her collaborators, through the means of interviews, conversations and classes as well as video, essays and documents analyses. This research begins weaving the paths that have subsidized her formation, making its way towards the bases and propositions which have composed her trajectory of work, from the decades of 1940 to 90. In sum, this study understands that the continuity, the potentiality and the unfolding of the unique manner of her work in Brazil is constituted by overlaying of diversified performing levels, which are composed by the intensities of her own presence in her life and art performances.
