BODY SPACE IMAGE

Body Space Image is a book about improvisation - a narrative of discovery that sets the mind loose from the rut of everyday perception. From a starting point in movement, improvisation is extended to include groups working together and the physical setting of performance - space, light, sound, objects.

Generously illustrated with examples drawn from twenty years of experimental performance, Body Space Image explores ways of working and ways of thinking about performance that will inspire both the beginner and the experienced artist. It is a manual intended to stimulate rather than instruct. It offers rich picking rather that a comprehenshive system of working and includes a unique collection of images - from dance, theatre and painting - and statements by working artists.
