Re: Technology and the Arts Hello Johannes,

I am a dancer/choreographer from the Caribbean who has trained and worked extensively in America, Germany, and now in Britain. I am also a Lecturer in Performing Arts at King Alfred's College in Winchester.

I am quite interested in this new book of yours. Is it out yet, and if not when is it due for publication. From what I have heard about your work, it seems that we might be exploring similar directions.I gave a paper recently at the FIRT conference at the University of Kent on connections between AI and dance practice. A chapter of my Ph.D. concentrates on these issues.

If your new book will not be out soon, I would certainly be interested in reading these texts you are sending to Lesley.

Henry Daniel.
