This Living Book was created as part of my ongoing efforts to enrich contemporary poetry with new art forms and diverse voices. It is not a manifesto or manual for dancepoems. I do not want to be parochial. Rather, I seek to celebrate the emergent nature of this fascinating new genre, create conversation and excitement around it and share inspirational practice.
Technically speaking, a living book is a series of nested webpages, structured as a browser book. First chapters were written in 2015, published in August 2017 and further chapters will be added over the next months and years. The digital format allows for archiving and sharing what would otherwise be confined to selected audiences, restricted in time and place.
