Spatz, Ben (2015) What a Body Can Do: Technique as Knowledge, Practice as Research. Routledge, London and New York. ISBN 978-1-13-885410-9Metadata only available from this repository.
In What a Body Can Do, Ben Spatz develops, for the first time, a rigorous theory of embodied technique as knowledge. He argues that understanding technique as both training and research has much to offer current discussions around the role of practice in the university, including the debates around “practice as research.”
Drawing on critical perspectives from the sociology of knowledge, phenomenology, dance studies, enactive cognition, and other areas, Spatz argues that technique is a major area of historical and ongoing research in physical culture, performing arts, and everyday life.
