More Details..

<P>Interest in performance movement, and specifically 'physical theatre', has never been greater, within the classroom, academy and theatre. But there is a remarkable absence of texts that subject the moving body to a fully analytical gaze.</P> <P>Tales of the Flesh, by Colin Counsell, represents a much-needed analytical survey of a range of movement-based practitioners in theatre and dance, looking at Laban, Meyerhold, the Bauhaus, Martha Graham and Jacques Lecoq. In it he considers how performance movement generates meaning, whilst placing these artists within their socio-historical context. </P> <P>Counsell is renowned for his work in semiotics and performance, and here he draws on that to provide the first coherant theoretical position of movement performance in the modernist period. The result is a crucial scholarly intervention with implications for the study of theatrical history and the theatrical present.</P>

Representing China On The Historical London Stage:from Orientalism To Intercultural Performance

More Details..

This book provides a critical study of how China was represented on the historical London stage in selected examples from the late seventeenth century to the early twentieth century—which corresponds with the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), China’s last monarchy. The examples show that during this historical period, the stage representations of the country were influenced in turn by Jesuit writings on China, Britain’s expanding material interest in China, the presence of British imperial power in Asia, and the establishment of diasporic Chinese communities abroad. While finding that many of these works may be read as gendered and feminized, Chang emphasizes that the Jesuits’ depiction of China as a country of high culture and in perennial conflict with the Tartars gradually lost prominence in dramatic imaginations to depictions of China’s material and visual attractions. Central to the book’s argument is that the stage representations of China were inherently intercultural and open to new influences, manifested by the evolving combinations of Chinese and English (British) traits. Through the dramatization of the Chinese Other, the representations questioned, satirized, and put in sharp relief the ontological and epistemological bases of the English (British) Self.

More Details..

Theatre Design involves everything seen on stage: not only scenery but costumes, wigs, makeup, properties, lighting, sound, even the shape and material of the stage itself. Designers’ Shakespeare presents and analyses the work of a half-dozen leading practitioners of this specialist art. By focusing specifically on their Shakespearean work, it also offers a fresh, exciting perspective on some of the best-known drama of all time.

Shakespeare’s plays offer an unusual range of opportunities to designers. As they were written for a theatre which gave no opportunity for scenic support or embellishment, designers are freed from any compulsion to imitate original practices. This has resulted in the extraordinarily diverse range of works presented in this volume, which considers among others the work of Josef Svoboda, Karl-Ernst Herrmann, Ming Cho Lee, Alison Chitty, Robert Wilson, Societas Raffaello Sanzio, Filter Theatre, Catherine Zuber, John Bury , Christopher Morley, Ralph Koltai and Sean Kenny.

Designers’ Shakespeare joins Actors’ Shakespeare and Directors’ Shakespeare as essential reading for lovers of Shakespeare from theatre-goers and students to directors and theatre designers.

More Details..

Improvisation is a performance practice that animates and activates diverse energies of inspiration, critique, and invention. In recent years it has coalesced into an exciting and innovative new field of interdisciplinary scholarly inquiry, becoming a cornerstone of both practical and theoretical approaches to performance.

The Improvisation Studies Reader draws together the works of key artists and thinkers from a range of disciplines, including theatre, music, literature, film, and dance. Divided by keywords into eight sections, this book bridges the gaps between these fields. The book includes case studies, exercises, graphic scores and poems in order to produce a teaching and research resource that identifies central themes in improvisation studies. The sections include:

  • Listening
  • Trust/Risk
  • Flow
  • Dissonance
  • Responsibility
  • Liveness
  • Surprise
  • Hope

Each section of the Reader is introduced by a newly commissioned think piece by a key figure in the field, which opens up research questions reflecting on the keyword in question.

By placing key theoretical and classic texts in conversation with cutting-edge research and artists’ statements, this book answers the urgent questions facing improvising artists and theorists in the mediatized Twenty-First Century.

More Details..

In August 2012, twenty dance artists from eleven countries spent ten days at the Findhorn Community Foundation, Scotland, to learn and be coached in the performance of a solo they had each commissioned from renowned choreographer Deborah Hay.

Hay’s innovative Solo Performance Commissioning Project (SPCP) instils a transformative and rigorous daily practice that serves to stimulate and enrich each individual’s approach to performance and choreography. This process then engenders twenty unique solo adaptations of the work through a period of practice that extends into the months following the project.

To mark the moment of the final SPCP in 2012, Independent Dance commissioned videographer Becky Edmunds to document the journey of the group as they learned the solo ‘Dynamic’. The resulting film, Turn Your F^*king Head, is the only time this project has been filmed. Capturing the process by which Hay transmits the same solo dance to twenty individuals, the film unveils the experiences, insights, and questions that inform the work and artistic practice.

Edmunds reveals the discernment, humour, inquiry, and humility of one of the most respected and original dance artists of our time.

Turn Your F^*king Head offers an in-depth chronicle of choreographer Deborah Hay's Solo Performance Commissioning Project that will provoke rich thought and discussion among dancers and choreographers alike. Students in dance technique, choreography, history and theory, and dance criticism courses will grow from discussing and writing about TYFH, and new movement-based performance projects are bound to be engendered by ideas gleaned from the film.’

More Details..

As the symbolists, constructivists and surrealists of the historical avant-garde began to abandon traditional theatre spaces and embrace the more contingent locations of the theatrical ‘event’, the built environment of a performance became not only part of the event, but an event in and of itself.

Event Space radically re-evaluates the avant garde’s championing of nonrepresentational spaces, drawing on the specific fields of performance studies and architectural studies to establish a theory of ‘performative architecture’.

‘Event’ was of immense significance to modernism’s revolutionary agenda, resisting Realism and Naturalism – and, simultaneously, the monumentality of architecture itself. Event Space analyses a number of spatiotemporal models central to that revolution, both illuminating the history of avant-garde performance, and inspiring contemporary approaches to performance space.
