Sgorbati Publishes Book on Emergent Improv

Faculty member Susan Sgorbati has published a book with Emily Climer ’12 and Marie Lynn Haas ’12 on Emergent Improvisation: Where Dance Meets Science on Spontaneous Composition

Sgorbati's initial meetings, a decade ago, with eminent scientists in the field of complexity, Dr. Bruce Weber, Dr. Gerald Edelman, and Dr. Stuart Kauffman, inspired the direction and naming of her work and she sustains dynamic on-going dialogues with each of them and others. The Emergent Improvisation Project continues to forge new connections both nationally and internationally with organizations and institutions devoted to interdisciplinary research, education, cultural development, and unique platforms for performance.
