Bringing together cutting-edge scholarship in performance studies, cognitive science, sociology, literature, anthropology, psychology, architecture, philosophy, and sport science, this book asks: what do individuals bring to and do in collaborative embodied performance? How do group members with distinct capacities complement each other in skilled action? Innovative methodological approaches are applied to detailed case studies from martial arts, tango, social interaction, Body Weather, human-AI music composition, Front-of-House at the Globe Theatre, and failing at handstands. Each investigation exposes performance and theory as mutually revealing, informative and captivating. Short chapters fall into thematic clusters exploring embodied collaboration, cognition, and coordination, followed by commentaries from leading scholars in performance studies and cognitive science. Each brings to light different facets of the performance ecology present in the collaborative moment(s), equipping performance makers, students and researchers with theoretical, methodological and practical inspiration to delve deeper into their own embodied practices and critical thinking--
