Book excerpt: James Genius is a traveler hiding a secret. While trying to fit into a community that thrives off death, James begins building a new life that quickly turns into a personal hell in futuristic America. A new Civil War brews in America while James simultaneously fights his own internal demons and hallucinations as he attempts to locate the survivors of his hidden family. While the government promises to protect and separate citizens from one another, obsessive political control and suspicious behavior begins to confuse and upset the public. As a result, survival groups start preparing for the collapse of the government while a news organization, The Zoo Trials, tries to explain and solve the country's seemingly inevitable demise. James holds the key to a major change, but in a futile attempt to protect himself, he pretends he doesn't recall his past. Meanwhile, others encourage James to reveal his true self, but he waits for the right moment to fuel his transformation. Only time will tell if James finds the real life he's been desperately seeking and if the citizens of this revolutionary community will pull together and plant the seeds of positive change.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This beautifully illustrated book conveys the centrality of costume to live performance. Finding associations between contemporary practices and historical manifestations, costume is explored in six thematic chapters, examining the transformative ritual of costuming; choruses as reflective of society; the grotesque, transgressive costume; the female sublime as emancipation; costume as sculptural art in motion; and the here-and-now as history. Viewing the material costume as a crucial aspect in the preparation, presentation and reception of live performance, the book brings together costumed performances through history. These range from ancient Greece to modern experimental productions, from medieval theatre to modernist dance, from the 'fashion plays' to contemporary Shakespeare, marking developments in both culture and performance. Revealing the relationship between dress, the body and human existence, and acknowledging a global as well as an Anglo and Eurocentric perspective, this book shows costume's ability to cross both geographical and disciplinary borders. Through it, we come to question the extent to which the material costume actually co-authors the performance itself, speaking of embodied histories, states of being and never-before imagined futures, which come to life in the temporary space of the performance.

This book was released on 2020-09-03 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Shortlisted for the 2021 Prime Minister's Literary Award for Australian History. Representing Australian Aboriginal Music and Dance 1930-1970 offers a rethinking of recent Australian music history. Amanda Harris presents accounts of Aboriginal music and dance by Aboriginal performers on public stages. Harris also historicizes the practices of non-Indigenous art music composers evoking Aboriginal music in their works, placing this in the context of emerging cultural institutions and policy frameworks. Centralizing auditory worlds and audio-visual evidence, Harris shows the direct relationship between the limits on Aboriginal people's mobility and non-Indigenous representations of Aboriginal culture. This book seeks to listen to Aboriginal accounts of disruption and continuation of Aboriginal cultural practices and features contributions from Aboriginal scholars Shannon Foster, Tiriki Onus and Nardi Simpson as personal interpretations of their family and community histories. Contextualizing recent music and dance practices in broader histories of policy, settler colonial structures, and postcolonizing efforts, the book offers a new lens on the development of Australian musical cultures.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An illuminating cultural journey through black and white America. Gayle Pemberton shares the accumulated revelations of a lifetime of observation in sixteen provocative autobiographical essays, interweaving her own history and that of her family with reflections on American literature, art, music, and film. Building on the tradition of such writers as W.E.B. Du Bois, James Baldwin, and Ralph Ellison, but with a wisdom and sharp wit uniquely her own, Pemberton moves from the integration of a transient hotel in Chicago to a party on that city's Gold Coast; from journeys by train and the memories they provoke to reflections on race aboard ship in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean; from the Mickey Mouse Club to the ghost of Emmett Till; from Harvard to Hollywood.
