The special edition of French magazine Sport & Vie (No. 49, December 2018), "La Danse, comme on n'en parle jamais", includes an interview with me. The entire issue is well worth reading. So, if you speak French, get yourself a copy before it's out of stock. You can buy it at any major news outlet in France or order it online.

The Oxford Handbook of Improvisation in Dance edited by Vida L. Midgelow is scheduled for publication in April 2019. It includes a chapter by me. From what I've seen it looks like a groundbreaking publication that will finally put dance improvisation on the map as an area worthy of theoretical reflection and inquiry in its own right.
