This collection of classic and new writings on dance improvisation brings together 21 essays by prominent dancers, scholars and historians. ‘Taken by surprise’ reflects the development of improvisation as a compositional and performance mode in a wide variety of dance contexts, including dance traditions from around the globe, such as Yoruban masked dance, Indian Bharatanatyam and flamenco. The book also includes a thoughtful look at computer-aided choreography, a discussion of recent innovations in tap dancing and a section on improvisation in everyday life. Combining primary sources with critical analysis, ‘Taken by surprise’ will serve as a companion to studio work in improvisation, and a much-needed supplement to twentieth century dance histories.
