From the dance floor of a tango club to group therapy classes, from ballet to community theatre, improvised dance is everywhere. For some dance artists, improvisation is one of many approaches within the choreographic process. For others, it is a performance form in its own right. And while it has long been practiced, it is only within the last twenty years that dance improvisation has become a topic of critical inquiry. With The Oxford Handbook of Improvisation in Dance, dancer, teacher, and editor Vida L. Midgelow provides a cutting-edge volume on dance improvisation in all its facets. Expanding beyond conventional dance frameworks, this handbook looks at the ways that dance improvisation practices reflect our ability to adapt, communicate, and respond to our environment. Throughout the handbook, case studies from a variety of disciplines showcase the role of individual agency and collective relationships in improvisation, not just to dancers but to people of all backgrounds and abilities. In doing so, chapters celebrate all forms of improvisation, and unravel the ways that this kind of movement informs understandings of history, socio-cultural conditions, lived experience, cognition, and technologies.

Rowohlt E-Book Monographie Johann Sebastian Bach, der große schwierige Einzelgänger, bot lange genug Stoff für Mythen. Allmählich nimmt sein Bild deutliche Züge an: Bach bedient einerseits die gängigen Gattungen seiner Zeit wie Orgelchoral, Konzert, Kantate und Passion, andererseits ist er von einem autonomen Selbstwillen beseelt, dem alle Bereiche seines Komponierens unterworfen sind. In dieser kurzen Biographie erfährt der Leser alles Wichtige über Leben und Werk des großen Musikers. Das Bildmaterial der Printausgabe ist in diesem E-Book nicht enthalten.
