"If you already have a piece of music ingrained in your body, why would you not play it?"
(Keith Jarrett)

Taking Jarrett's thought one step further, one could ask: If you already have a sense of play, rhythm, or movement ingrained in your body, why would you not perform it? Drawing on the transdisciplinary and hybrid nature of human communication, this volume is based on the idea of a fruitful dialogue between languages, aesthetic education, and performing arts. Scholars from all continents have contributed to this anthology - a sign of the growing interest worldwide in promoting the vision of teaching and learning foreign languages with head, heart, hands and feet.

Olivier Mentz is Vice-President of the Franco-German University. Micha Fleiner holds a PhD in Performative Foreign Language Didactics.
