Description

The product of over eighteen years of embodied research by the author, The Dancing Word presents a systemic and phenomenological description of a contemporary intercultural theatre practice. This volume offers a blueprint for both training and collaborative performance creation that integrates the best of western laboratory theatre with the practice and ontological underpinnings of Chinese martial (Wushu) and healing/self care (Qigong) arts. This is a book for theatre practitioners, students, scholars, and those interested in exploring transcultural methodologies.
