Over Under And Around: Essays on Performance and Culture
Over Under And Around: Essays on Performance and Culture
Description
From the Jacket :

The essays collected in this book represent Schechner's lifetime in performance studies. Political theatre, the avant garde, the secular and sacred rituals of performance, the nature of belief and its suspensions in theatre, aesthetics, performance theory, and performance studies have been his recurring subjects even as his knowledge has changed and deepened from seeing performances of all kinds, all over the world. So he is a position to compare the incomparable yaqui and Ramlila, dixi and namahage in a manner that furthers the study of ritual and indicates the ways performance is similarly and differently imbricated in different communities.

Schechner has also learned that the avant garde is mor ethan a historical occurrence localized in, or originating in, a single culture. Schechner asserts that we can also understand the avant garde as a particular kind of articulation of the traditional and the oral. The range and depth of Schechner's scholarly endeavour informed by his artistic practice has led him to think about the deep structure of performance and theorize its construction across cultures. This confluence of practice and scholarship, where each realm wholly informs the other, is second only to Schechner's far ranging contact with diverse types of performance in generating his exceptional thinking on the meaning and importance of performance as the paradigm for the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Testimonials
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
