FlynnArts Faculty

SUSAN SGORBATI Susan Sgorbati has been seriously investigating improvisation as a method for teaching and performance for over twenty years. For the last ten years in collaboration with scientists, she has been exploring the relationship between dance and music improvisation and complex systems. Her work has led her to three residencies at The Neurosciences Insititute in La Jolla, California under the tutelage of Dr. Gerald Edelman and an ongoing dialogue with Dr. Stuart Kauffman, who was in residence at Bennington College in the fall of 2004. In 2006, she went on a national tour with her “Emergent Improvisation Project”. Her book was recently published, "Emergent Improvisation: Where Dance Meets Science on Spontaneous Composition". She has been on the faculty at Bennington College for twenty-five years and is also a professional mediator.
