Latest Contact Quarterly interview
When my book Body and Mind in Motion first came out at the end of 2014, I was interviewed by Marlon Barrios Solano, an interdisciplinary artist, researcher based in Germany and the USA, as well as the and curator for a wonderful internet platform on dance called dance-tech.net That interview has been republished in Contact Quarterly, in the latest issue (2016; 41:2, pp. 31-27),
DANCE, SOMATICS AND NEUROSCIENCE: An Interview with Glenna Batson about her book Body and Mind in Motion, by Marlon Barrios Solano.
CQ is a ‘vehicle for moving ideas’ on dance and improvisation. Take a look for yourself, if you care not familiar with the expansive coverage that would appeal to all movement enthusiasts. I thank Nancy Stark-Smith, Lisa Nelson, Melinda Buckwalter and the rest of the staff who saw the interview into the latest issue of CQ with sensitivity. I also thank Marlon for his incredible zest for the topics discussed in the body, and Margaret Wilson, my co-pilot who helped steer the work and contributed her own chapter on vertical dance.
