    This book consists of the proceedings of the conference which took place within iDANS Istanbul International Dance and Performance Festival on 6-7 October 2007 at Boğaziçi University. Participants from different disciplines discussed the “solo” as a particular artistic form, and as a particular way of being and becoming from historical, artistic and sociological points of view.
