A Widening Field
A Widening Field is a widely used resource for:
"A truly brilliant work. Experiential and inspired. For anyone interested in creativity and their own creative process. Highly recommended for people who are in education, from kindergarten to college and university. And actually a must for everyone - to widen the human field of view in a profound, playful and evocative way."
Wim Vanaken on amazon.com
"This book was 30 years in the making, and it shows. [The authors} ... have created a rich resource for creative inspiration and self-discovery through physical, sentient experiences. This book widens the conception of the educational textbook; it is written with as many visual images as poetic passages, with white space on each page creating shapes that do more than frame the words. The recommended experiential vignettes are focused on enlivening the sensing body: “arriving into the body, into the world, becoming present”.
The authors stimulate receptivity by illuminating the body's experiences through poetry and visual art. Reading these journeys, one gets as close as literally possible (in a book) to actual movement... This text could work magically for students who have difficulty entering metaphorical thought with their self-reflections. The text would be ideal for upper-level modern dance technique students or as the primary text for courses in experiential anatomy, improvisation, or body therapies.
