Miranda Tufnell and Chris Crickmay Body Space Image: Notes Towards Improvisation and Performance, Dance Books, 1990.

A French edition of Body Space Image, with the title: Corps, Espace, Image was published in Brussels by Contredanse in 2014.


"If you only have the chance to buy one book on contemporary performance, buy "Body, Space and Image" by Crickmay & Tufnell. If you have the chance to buy two, get "A Widening Field." Then if you have more luck attend one of Crickmay & Tufnell's workshops like I did at the Centre for Performance Research, Aberystwyth. Both books are like bibles for me during both the hardest and easiest moments of the creative process. There are few books that are such useful practical resources for contemporary artists."
