about this item

This book synthesizes and integrates research in the field of creativity and the performing arts. This is a field that has received limited research investigation and yet our culture is powerfully invested in and influenced by the performing arts. The book will help explain the creative process, flow and flow enhancement, emotional regulation strategies, career demands including injuries, burn out, and stress, as well as developmentally appropriate training recommendations to augment creativity and enhance performance.

  • Discusses domain specificity within the performing arts
  • Encompasses dance, theatre, music, and comedy performance art
  • Reviews the biology behind performance from thinking to movement
  • Identifies how an artist develops over time from childhood through adult training
  • Summarizes the effect of personality, mood, and psychopathology on performance
  • Explores career concerns of performing artists from injury to burn out
