This study seeks to explore the cultural taboo surrounding loneliness in the late modern society through arts-based research. The study originates from a curiosity about the possibilities of exploring academic inquiries through an artistic practice. We seek to examine loneliness amongst the youth working with the bodies of professional dancers as an analytic tool. This study will introduce arts-based research through theories by Robin Nelson and Shaun McNiff. This study will include an introduction to the late modern society and the consequences that it holds for the creation of the individual by Anthony Giddens. This additional dimension contributes with a basic knowledge for the known theories surrounding the expansion of loneliness in Denmark. This research will be conducted through an experimentation in the form of a workshop. The workshop will be documented and analyzed through autoethnography and discussion through critical reflection. This study concludes the art-based research based in embodied knowledge as a valid method for academic research.
