The only scholarly book in English dedicated to recent European contemporary dance, Exhausting Dance: Performance and the Politics of Movement examines the work of key contemporary choreographers who have transformed the dance scene since the early 1990s in Europe and the US. Through their vivid and explicit dialogue with performance art, visual arts and critical theory from the past thirty years, this new generation of choreographers challenge our understanding of dance by exhausting the concept of movement. Their work demands to be read as performed extensions of the radical politics implied in performance art, in post-structuralist and critical theory, in post-colonial theory, and in critical race studies. In this far-ranging and exceptional study, Andre Lepecki brilliantly analyzes the work of the choreographers: * Jerome Bel (France) * Juan Dominguez (Spain) * Trisha Brown (US) * La Ribot (Spain) * Xavier Le Roy (France-Germany) * Vera Mantero (Portugal) and visual and performance artists: * Bruce Nauman (US) * William Pope.L (US). This book offers a significant and radical revision of the way we think about dance, arguing for the necessity of a renewed engagement between dance studies and experimental artistic and philosophical practices.

The Oxford Handbook of Dance and Reenactment brings together a cross-section of artists and scholars engaged with the phenomenon of reenactment in dance from a practical and theoretical standpoint. Synthesizing myriad views on danced reenactment and the manner in which this branch of choreographic performance intersects with important cultural concerns around appropriation this Handbook addresses originality, plagiarism, historicity, and spatiality as it relates to cultural geography. Others topics treated include transmission as a heuristic device, the notion of the archive as it relates to dance and as it is frequently contrasted with embodied cultural memory, pedagogy, theory of history, reconstruction as a methodology, testimony and witnessing, theories of history as narrative and the impact of dance on modernist literature, and relations of reenactment to historical knowledge and new media.

This volume critically discusses dance’s role as an art form in modern Greek society, exploring both ethnographic and cross-cultural issues. The contents of the book unfold in parallel and intertwining dialogues and discourses incorporating reflections on philosophical and scientific subjects and experiences relating to dance. The investigation places ballet, modern and contemporary dance within the Greek context, and juxtaposes these genres with international dance making. It also uncovers the factors that have affected the development of dance practices in Greece during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and considers the reasons why, until now, dance, as an embodied art form, has not been established in Greece as an autonomous academic discipline with its own sustainable educational structures. It paints a picture of the past and the present, while also serving to inspire future artist-practitioners and scholars to advocate and support the discipline of dance in Greece.

I have completed this manuscript Just Remember This, or as American Pop Singers 1900-1950+, about music before the 1950s in America. It perhaps offers knowledge and insights not previously found in other musical reference books. I have moreover been working on this book very meticulously over the past twelve-plus years. It started as a bit of fun and gradually became serious as I began to listen along with the vocalists of popular music, of the era before 1950, essentially just before the dawn of rock and roll. If you can call it that! Indeed genre and labeling of American music started here, and then from everywhere. While the old adage of always starting from somewhere could be noted in every century, the 1900s had produced the technology. Understanding the necessity, more so, finds a curiosity on the part of a general public hungry for entertainment, despite 6 day work weeks, World War I, the Great Depression, and World War II.

The Routledge Companion to Art and Politics offers a thorough examination of the complex relationship between art and politics, and the many forms and approaches the engagement between them can take. The contributors - a diverse assembly of artists, activists, scholars from around the world – discuss and demonstrate ways of making art and politics legible and salient in the world. As such the 32 chapters in this volume reflect on performing and visual arts; music, film and new media; as well as covering social practice, community-based work, conceptual, interventionist and movement affiliated forms. The Companion is divided into four distinct parts: Conceptual Cartographies Institutional Materialities Modalities of Practice Making Publics Randy Martin has assembled a collection that ensures that readers will come away with a wider view of what can count as art and politics; where they might find it; and how it moves in the world. The diversity of perspectives is at once challenging and fortifying to those who might dismiss political art on the one hand as not making sufficient difference and on the other to those embracing it but seeking a means to elaborate the significance that it can make in the world. The Routledge Companion to Art and Politics brings together a range of issues and approaches and encourages critical and creative thinking about how art is produced, perceived, and received.

This amazing book leads you out of the old paradigm of The Material Model that makes change so difficult, into the revolutionary new paradigm for the 21st century --The Energy Model that makes change easier and more harmonious. In addition, VIBRATIONAL HARMONY Clarifies the little-understood relationship between what you want, the Universal Laws (laws of energy and physics that govern your life), your mind, your subconscious programming, and what you actually get. Explains the workings of your awesome mind conscious, subconscious and Superconscious - and teaches you how to overcome its resistance to change, so you can live the life you desire. Shows you how the Universal Laws of Vibration, Polarity, Rhythm, Cause and Effect, etc., operate, so you can be on harmony with them and create and attract what you want. Correlates and integrates ancient wisdom and metaphysics with modern psychology, leading edge science and quantum physics, so you can see the threads that run through all true teachings. Ends confusion and frustration by filling in gaps and missing links in the massive amount of often conflicting teachings. Describes the exciting new field of mind-body healing called Energy Psychology and shows you how to use extremely effective, yet simple, healing techniques. Most importantly, VIBRATIONAL HARMONY gives you powerful tools and techniques, plus step-by-step processes to release your negative beliefs, emotions and programs and reprogram yourself to create and attract more success, health, happiness, peace of mind...whatever YOU want! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Vibrational Harmony: The Real Secret of Success, Health and Happiness Beverly Nadler, CMT, CH Trafford Publishing, 255 pages, (paperback) $17.48, 978-1466919594 (Reviewed: August, 2012) Six years ago, Rhonda Byrne, an Australian television writer and producer, authored the wildly popular self-help book, The Secret, in which she instructed readers on how to tune into life-affirming energy and achieve limitless success. Dozens of books have since been released promising similar results. Beverly Nadlers Vibrational Harmony joins the list, and despite the glut, its a welcome addition. What makes Nadlers book worthy is her clarity in explaining what might otherwise be a complex concept. Everything is energy and everything includes you, Nadler writes. Your energy field radiates into the Universe and attracts the people, things, events, situations and circumstances that your vibrations are in harmony with, and these become your life. It follows that good energy attracts positive results. Negative energy? Not so much. Comparing the brain to a computer, Nadler seamlessly leads her readers through a five-stage course of reprogramming, which includes Awareness, Identification, Releasing, Installing and Integrating. There is nothing woo-woo about Nadlers approach. She offers step-by-step instructions on how to relinquish a Material Model in which our thinking is negative and full of limits and substitute it for an Energy Model which, among other benefits, guarantees Spiritual communication and Divine intervention, as well as the ability to heal physical problems from cold symptoms to pain. Nadler might have added grist to her thesis by including case studies, which would have illustrated her concepts in action. But for those who can accept her premise without needing personal anecdotes to firm up their belief, good vibes are guaranteed. Also available as an ebook. ---------------------------------------- Reader's Testimonials Vibrational Harmony is the most explosively powerful toolbox of self-help ever written. I credit Beverly with turning my life around. She helped me reconcile years of memories filled with abuse, and the techniques in her book empowered me to move from living as a victim to living juicy.

Andrea Amador, Empowerment Coach, Author of Loving the Skin Youre In Vibrational Harmony isnt merely a book; its a portal to endless opportunity and a lifetime of success and happiness! Beverly inspires elevating energies to higher frequencies as she puts a positive spin on life and all it has to offer! It was a thrill to have her on our TV show! Christine Frances, Intuitive, Medium, Clairvoyant, Host of Ask Your Angels Internet TV Talk Show Vibrational Harmony is a powerful book with vital information. Beverly Nadler's vision and message is clearly articulated and communicated. For the genuine seeker of truth and knowledge, this book will be the KEY to unlocking the foundational SECRET of Success in every aspect of life. Buy it and read it over and over until you have taken full hold of its message of transforming power Mark Campese, Inspirational Speaker, Life Coach, Business Development Consultant When I read the original version of Vibrational Harmony, I was so impressed I asked Beverly if I could write the Forward. I had read many self-help books, but none like hers. When she told me she was revising the book, I couldnt imagine how or why. Then I read this new revised version and was amazed. The new chapters, the expansion of several chapters, her personal story and clarification of the powerful energy techniques she teaches makes the revise3d Vibrational Harmony a must read for anyone who is on a personal growth journey, spiritual journey or both even if you read the original version. Joyce E. Barrie, Success Coach, Host of Joyce Barrie & Friends Internet Radio Show. Beverly Nadlers Vibrational Harmony brings breakthrough insights in the self-development field that allow you to be, do, and have all you yearn for and are intended to be. Theres been a revolution as far-reaching as anything humanitys ever witnessed, and only the few even know its happened. It all began, she explains, with physicists who ventured into the sub-atomic world, in which they discovered solidity was the "illusion" and the real reality is conscious energy. And, being wavelike-and electrical, it operates differently than the 3 dimensional world. The classical Material Model thinking everything is hard, 3 dimensional and difficult to change was the appropriate level of evolution during our recent epoch of development. And thats why things looked that way. Vibrational Harmony leads you all the way from an introduction to this new view of the world, to embracing The Energy Model, to finally manifest the good things you want in life. Its quantum!
