Abstract:

"The Routledge Companion to Theatre, Performance, and Cognitive Science integrates key findings from the cognitive sciences (cognitive psychology, neuroscience, evolutionary studies, and relevant social sciences) with insights from theatre and performance studies. This rapidly expanding interdisciplinary field dynamically advances critical and theoretical knowledge, as well as driving innovation in practice. The anthology includes thirty specially-commissioned chapters, many written by authors who have been at the cutting-edge of research and practice in the field over the last fifteen years. These authors offer many empirical answers to four significant questions: - How can performances in theatre, dance, and other media achieve more emotional and social impact? - How can we become more adept teachers and learners of performance both within and outside of classrooms? - What can the cognitive sciences reveal about the nature of drama and human nature in general? - How can Knowledge Transfer from a synthesis of science and performance assist professionals such as nurses, care-givers, therapists, and emergency workers in their jobs? A wide-ranging and authoritative guide, The Routledge Companion to Theatre, Performance, and Cognitive Science is an accessible tool for not only students, but practitioners and researchers in the arts and sciences as well"--
