Contents: Introduction; COMMUNICATING THROUGH DANCE: 1. The dance medium: a nexus - what is the dance medium? What are dances made of? 2. Dance as communication - do dances communicated? How? 3. Ideas and medium, content and form - what is a dance idea? Is it a narrative or something else? 4. Meaning, signs, in layers - the meanings that choreographers have during the creative processes, the signs that are actually in the dance, the meanings given to it by the spectators - are they the same thing or three different layers? 5. Narrative and formal - a look at how the metalinguistic, the referential and the aesthetic functions operate in dance works; 6. More on communication - codes, meanings, functions, and how they work for the choreographer; THE PERFORMER'S PERSPECTIVE: 7. Sensing and intending - how do dancers experience what they are doing? 8. Feeling and intending - Is dance feeling the same as emotional feeling? 9. The phenomenal experience of dancing - the 'here and now' - what is phenomenal about dancing? What is the NOW? 10. The dancer's intention - the performative function in a work - what can dancers do with the movement material they have to dance? 11. The performer's look - does it really matter what a dancer looks like? THE MOVEMENT PERSPECTIVE: 12. The factors and vocabularies of movement - what is movement in dance made of? What are dance vocabularies? 13. Behaviour as a movement vocabulary - can psychologists' and sociologists' and movement people's understanding of behaviour offer the choreographer a tool? 14. Bodily co-ordination - the first of the components of movement; 15. Actions and steps - the second component of movement; 16. Eukinetics: the study of the dynamic qualities of rhythm - what are rhythm and dynamics made of in dance movement? 17. Breath, organic and arbitrary rhythms - why do chorographers choose certain kinds of rhythmic organisation for their work? 18. Metric rhythm - counting and the dancer; etc
