Book Synopsis Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui by : Lise Uytterhoeven

This book analyses the world-renowned Belgian choreographer’s key approaches and dramaturgical strategies through selected case studies from his oeuvre between 2000 and 2010, from Rien de Rien to Babel(words). It investigates Cherkaoui’s choreographic and dramaturgic interventions in debates on the nation, culture, religion and language, by emphasising the transcultural, transreligious and geopolitical dimensions of the dialogues and exchanges he explored during this initial decade. Engaged spectatorship refers to the ongoing thinking, talking, research and writing that the spectator is invited to do in order to fulfil the work’s macro-dramaturgical potential to resist nationalism, populism and religious fundamentalism. The book meticulously explores Cherkaoui’s rich, multi-layered theatrical imagery and aural landscapes to demonstrate the agile and ever-shifting interpretive acts the works elicit from their audiences. Offering a full-length analysis of Cherkaoui’s work, the book is essential reading for students, researchers, practitioners and Cherkaoui fans.

Book Synopsis In-between Dance Cultures by : Guy Cools

Belgian-Moroccan Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and British-Bengali Akram Khan are two of today's most prolific choreographers. Given their respective backgrounds and the practices they pursue, their artistic universes are largely built around their identity in-between dance cultures. Guy Cools who accompanied both, situates their work within the larger critical debate on the (post)modern and (post- )migrant identity. Cools details some of their iconic choreographic pieces. In-Between Dance Cultures offers a complementary view on questions of cultural identity taking the contemporary dancer's somatic awareness and knowledge of the body as its starting point.

Book Synopsis The Oxford Handbook of Contemporary Ballet by : Kathrina Farrugia-Kriel

"Nearly four hundred and fifty years in, ballet still resonates-though the stages have become international, and the dancers, athletes far removed from noble amateurs. While vibrations from the form's beginnings clearly resound, much has transformed. Nowadays ballet dancers aspire to work across disciplines with choreographers who value a myriad of abilities. Dance theorists and historians make known possibilities and polemics in lieu of notating dances verbatim, and critics do the daily work of recording performance histories and interviewing artists. Ideas circulate, questions arise, and discussions about how to resist ballet's outmoded traditions take precedence. In the dance community, calls for innovation have defined palpable shifts in ballet's direction and resultantly we have arrived at a new moment in its history that is unquestionably recognized as a genre onto its own: Contemporary Ballet. An aspect of this recent discipline is that its dancemakers, more often than not, seek to reorient the viewer by celebrating what could be deemed vulnerabilities, re-construing ideals of perfection, problematizing the marginalized/mainstream dichotomy, bringing audiences closer in to observe, and letting the art become an experience rather than a distant object preciously guarded out of reach. Hence, the practice of ballet is moving to become a less-mediated and more active process in many circumstances. Performers and audiences alike are challenged, and while convention is still omnipresent, choices are being made. For some, this approach has been drawn on for decades, and for others it signifies a changing of the guard, yet however we arrive there, the conclusion is the same: Contemporary Ballet is not a style. That is to say, it is not a trend, phase, or fashionable term that will fade, rather it is a clear period in ballet's time deserved of investigation. And it is into this moment that we enter"--

This extensive Handbook addresses a range of contemporary issues related to arts education across the world. It is divided into six sections; Contextualising Arts Education, Globally and Locally; Arts Education, Curriculum, Policy and Schooling; Arts Education Across the Life Span; Arts Education for Social Justice: Indigenous and Community Practice; Health, Wellbeing and Arts Education and Arts-Based and Research-Informed Arts Education.

With contributions from internationally renowned scholars and practitioners and building on the World Alliance for Arts Education Global Summit in 2014, the Handbook creates an essential resource for arts education practices in and out of school alongside institutional, traditional and contemporary contexts.

Book Synopsis Great Choreographers-Interviews by : Natasha Hassiotis

In this book, the reader will find some of the most important choreographers, artists who helped to shape the dance scene as it is today, from icon Pina Bausch to still-thriving figures such as Xavier Le Roy, Sasha Waltz, and more. Through this compilation of interviews conducted over the course of twenty years, Natasha Hassiotis aims to show on the one hand the choices made by the audience, the agents, and the festivals, and on the other hand, to show through discussions with choreographers what they have to say about their relation to their art, their audiences, and their dancers. A readable material by specialists and non-specialists alike, this work may help people who think of contemporary dance as a difficult-to-decipher “idiom” to familiarize themselves with this very old and popular art form.

Book Synopsis Tolstoy on Screen by : Lorna Fitzsimmons

Scholarship on screen adaptation has proliferated in recent years, but it has remained largely focused on English- and Romance-language authors. Tolstoy on Screen aims to correct this imbalance with a comprehensive examination of film and television adaptations of Tolstoy’s fiction. Spanning the silent era to the present day, these essays consider well-known as well as neglected works in light of contemporary adaptation and media theory. The book is organized to facilitate a comparative, cross-cultural understanding of the various practices employed in different eras and different countries to bring Tolstoy’s writing to the screen. International in scope and rigorous in analysis, the essays cast new light on Tolstoy’s work and media studies alike.
