Black Matters: Lewis Morrow Plays

Edited by Nandita Banerjee Dhawan & Sam Kolodezh

Lewis Morrow

Bratya Basu

Translated by Mainak Banerjee & Arnab Banerji

Baybra’s Tulips; Begetters; Motherson Edited by Nicole Hodges Persley, University of Kansas, USA

This anthology of six selected plays, written between 2000 and 2020 by Bratya Basu, is the first collection of Bengali plays that blends avant-garde, pop and traditional cultures with contemporary dramatic themes. The six plays, freshly translated into English, each bring a uniquely Bengali and Indian perspective on the intermingling of past and present, global and local, and magical and real in a postmodern pastiche about India today.

A play anthology that maps the impact of emotional, social, cultural and economic forces that shape the quality of African American life in the 21st century. Morrow’s social commentary on the state of emergency for Black Americans produced by a long history of anti-Black violence, premature death and forced assimilation result in beautifully ugly plays that question the possession rights of citizenship and freedom.

Cassie Abate, Texas State University, USA

This book firstly debunks the misunderstandings around what musical theatre choreographers actually do, demonstrating their need to have an indepth understanding of storytelling, music theory, performance practices and plot structure in order to create movement that enhances and enlivens the musical. Secondly, it equips the musical theatre choreographer with all the tools needed to themselves create nuanced, informed and inspired movement for productions, through structured activities that build specific skills (such as 'notating the script' and 'scoring the score'). This book is the first to make an advanced, in-depth look at musical theatre choreography accessible.

A Cultural History of Little Shop of Horrors Adam Abraham

How many hit musicals are based on films that were shot in two days at a budget of $30,000? The answer is one: Little Shop of Horrors. This timely and authoritative book looks at the creation of the musical, analyzing its place in the contemporary musical theatre canon through to the various afterlives and wider cultural context, asking the question why this unlikely combination of blood, annihilation, and catchy tunes has resonated with audiences from the 1980s to the present day.

National Identity and the British Musical

Dance and Activism

Grace Barnes

Dana Mills, University of Oxford, UK

From Blood Brothers to Cinderella

Through case studies and analysis of British musicals such as Blood Brothers, Cinderella, Half a Sixpence and Billy Elliot, this book examines the place of the British musical within a text-based theatrical heritage and asks what, or whose, Britain is being represented by home grown musicals. The sheer number of people engaging with shows bestows enormous power upon the genre and yet critics display a reluctance to analyse the cultural meanings produced by new work, or to hold work to account for production teams and narratives which continue to shun diversity and inclusive practices.

Attack of the Monster Musical

Falling Through Dance and Life Emilyn Claid, Independent scholar, UK

This book is about processes of falling. Dance and movement-based performers understand how practices of falling initiate supportive ways of being creatively alive in the world. An intentional practice of falling, experienced through somatic (mindbody) movement knowledge is a core element of dance practice, performance and movement-based therapy. This physical practice of falling affects both psychological awareness and metaphorical representation, and is key to the events, ideas and theories presented in the book.

A Century of Radical Dance Across the World This study focuses on dance as an activist practice in and of itself, across geographical locations and over the course of a century, from 1920 to 2020. Through doing so, it considers how dance has been an empowering agent for political action throughout civilisation. Dance and Activism offers a glimpse of different strategies of mobilizing the human body for good and justice for all, and captures the increasing political activism epitomized by bodies moving on the streets in some of the most turbulent political situations.

Working with the Voice

"Patsy Rodenburg wants to free your voice so that you can express yourself fully and honestly in public. Her revelation in The Right to Speak is that sound, like sense, can respond to the heart of our inner selves." – Sir Ian McKellen This Bloomsbury Revelations edition of Patsy Rodenburg's seminal book on voice contains revisions and additional content taking into account the effect of social media on communication skills, the need for empathetic listening, how scientific discovery now illuminates why and how voice exercises work, and cultural and global issues of ethics and storytelling.

This is the first book ever written for performers working specifically for motion capture. It covers the fundamental methodology and understanding required for all of those involved in creating great performance for motion capture – actors, animators, directors and technicians – with input from professionals from around the world.

The Commedia dell’Arte

Domenico Pietropaolo, University of Toronto, Canada What were the origins of commedia dell'arte and how did it evolve as a form over time and as it spread from Italy? How did its relationship to the ruling ideology of the day change during the Enlightenment? What is its legacy today?

Greek Tragedy and the Digital

Edited by George Rodosthenous, University of Leeds, UK & Angeliki Poulou, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece Through the encounter between Greek tragedy and digital media in contemporary performance, this study explores the ways traditional notions and conventions of Greek tragedy, such as the community, the city, the hubris and the mask, have been reappropriated and challenged through the use of technology in digital and virtual reality theatre. These technological innovations shed light on contemporary adaptions of classical myths, while raising questions about how augmented reality works within interactive and immersive environments. This collection considers issues such as performativity, liveness, immersion, intermediality, the theatre as hypermedia and reception theory in relation to Greek tragedy.

Dialectical Theatre Today

Establishing a creative philosophical dialogue between Brecht, Walter Benjamin, Theodor W. Adorno and Jacques Rancière, the study analyses seminal works by five influential contemporary playwrights, ranging from Mark Ravenhill’s ‘in-yer-face’ plays to Caryl Churchill’s most recent theatrical experiments. Critically engaging with Brecht’s theatrical legacy, these plays create a politically progressive form of drama which emphasises notions of negativity, ambivalence and conflict as a prerequisite for spectatorial engagement and emancipation.

Staging Technology

Medium, Machinery, and Modern Drama Craig N. Owens, Drake University, USA Staging Technology examines performance works in the European and American canon and beyond from 1920-2018 that represent complex or fraught human encounters with technology. By focusing on key works by writers including Eugène Ionesco, Samuel Beckett, Heiner Müller, Sophie Treadwell, Harold Pinter and Arthur Miller, it considers how those technologies themselves have influenced 20th and 21st-century playwrights’, composers’, and librettists’ choice of subject matter. Transforming how we think about the interrelationship between theatre practice, performance, narrative drama, and text, it explains how these aesthetic modes speak to and about the advanced technologies that have come to saturate our everyday lives.

Contemporary Readings in Gender and Sexuality

Shakespeare / Sex interrogates the relationship between Shakespeare and sex, challenging readers to consider Shakespeare’s texts in light of the most recent theoretical approaches to gender and sexuality studies. It takes as its premise that gender and sexuality studies are key to any interpretation of Shakespeare, be it his texts and their historical contexts, contemporary stage and cinematic productions, or adaptations from the Restoration to the present day. Approaching “sex” through four main perspectives - heterosexuality, third-wave intersectional feminism, queer studies, and trans studies - this book tackles a number of hot topics.

The Arden Research Handbook of Shakespeare and Social Justice

Edited by David Ruiter, University of Texas at El Paso, USA

This authoritative guide contains chapters on over 20 specific critical practices to Shakespeare, each grounded in analysis of a play. These practices range from foundational approaches including character studies, close reading and genre studies, through the critical practices that emerged in the 1970s and 80s including feminist, Marxist and psychoanalytic theories. Approaches drawn from postcolonial, queer studies and race studies, besides more recent topics including disability studies, global studies and the digital humanities all receive detailed treatment.

Across four sections this authoritative guide explores the relevance and responsibility of art to the real world - to the significant teaching and learning, performance and practice, theory and economies that not only expand the discussion of literature and theatre, but also open the gate of engagement between the life of the mind and lived experience. The collection draws from noted scholars, writers, and practitioners from around the globe to assert the power of art to question, disrupt and re-invigorate questions of social justice today.
