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.

Er schlägt gerne unvorhersehbare Haken und hat an fiesen Wendungen und abgründigen Ideen seine helle Freude. Ralf Kramp gilt in Deutschland nicht umsonst als einer der absoluten Meister des Schwarzen Humors. Bei seinen abgründigen Geschichten um ruchlose Greisinnen, vertrottelte Killer und skrupellose Serienmörder verläuft selten etwas so, wie es zu Beginn den Anschein hat. Das Schicksal stellt das ein oder andere Beinchen, der Zufall schlägt erbarmungslos zu, das Verbrechen mündet nicht selten in der absoluten Katastrophe. Zwanzig kleine kriminalistische Kabinettstückchen sorgen im munteren Wechsel für Lachtränen und Gänsehaut.
