Body and Mind in Motion. Dance and Neuroscience in conversation, Intellect

With a great pleasure, we draw the attention of science professionals and artists on a very important new publication:

Glenna Batson – Margaret Wilson, Body and Mind in Motion. Dance and Neuroscience in Conversation, Intellect, Bristol / Chicago, 2014.

It is a very exciting book in which any possible correlations between body, mind and movement are analyzed in a simple and never boring way. In the light of modern acquisitions in the fields of Neuroscience, Performing Arts Medicine, Choreography, Psychology, and Physiology, the Authors suggest the possible (theoretical and practical) ways to analyze the thought of movement and the movement of thought.

This is aimed not only to implement the performance and the choreo-urgy (the creative act of the choreographer) but, above all, to help the dancer, the circus performer and generically the artist of movement in order to recover – with the help of mirror neurons, and as possible he/she can – all physical, psychological and philosophical personal spaces. This improves both the performances and the awareness of own existence, and life itself.

Chapters slender, well-written and very rich of Bibliography
This book cannot be missed for personal research and for Libraries of any Performing Arts Centers.

Read it. Trust the CEIMArs!
