Readers' comments and the table of contents are here.

My current project investigates tradition, innovation and transmission. I am examining the relationship between creative and reproductive knowledge in the transmission of traditional practices and in their application to the contemporary performing arts. The project will include master-classes with senior artists, the creation of original performances, extensive video documentation, interviews with artists from many disciplines, the publication of scholarly articles and eventually a new book. The first creative poject in this cycle, Luo Shu Ji Xing, took place in late May and early June of 2014.
