I wrote a chapter for Body and Performance (Ways of Being a Body), published by Triarchy Press. My chapter, ‘The Resilient Body’, is about using the Feldenkrais Method and related somatic approaches to cultivate awareness of the body’s natural resilience. The book includes a range of interesting material about embodied practice in performance. Check it out: http://www.triarchypress.net/body-and-performance.html
Applied Theatre is a difficult term to define. In this Performance Pod I discuss its use and history with Professor Helen Nicholson from Royal Holloway, University of London.
She used the word ‘rhizomatic’. How do you like them apples?!
