3Title:  Performing archives/archives of performance   
 Creator:  Borggreen, Gunhild | Gade, Rune, 1964- | PSi (Organization) | Københavns universitet 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 481-490). This book contributes to the ongoing critical discussions of performance and its disappearance, of the ephemeral and its reproduction, of archives and mediatized recordings of liveness. The many contributions by excellent scholars and artists from a broad range of interdisciplinary fields as well as from various locations in research geographies demonstrate that despite the extensive discourse on the relationship between performance and the archive, inquiry into the productive tensions between ephemerality and permanence is by no means outdated or exhausted. New ways of understanding archives, history, and memory emerge and address theories of enactment and intervention, while concepts of performance constantly proliferate and enable a critical focus on archival residue. The contributions in this book cover philosophical inquiries as well as discussions of specific art works, performances, and archives.

4Title:  An introduction to theatre, performance and the cognitive sciences   
 Creator:  Lutterbie, John Harry, 1948- 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 190-193) and index. "This is the first textbook designed for students, practitioners, and scholars of the performing arts who are curious about the power of the cognitive sciences to throw light on the processes of performance, It equips readers with a clear understanding of how research in cognitive neuroscience has illuminated and expanded traditional approaches to thinking about topics such as the performer, the spectator, space and time, cultur, and the text. Each chapter considers three layers of performance: conventional forms of theatre, performance art, and everyday life, offering an expansive vision of the impact of the cognitive sciences on performance in the widest sense"--Publisher description.

"Richard Schechner's pioneering textbook is a lively, accessible overview of the full range of performance, with primary extracts, student activities, key biographies, and over 200 images of global performance.

This fourth edition has been revised with two new chapters, up-to-date coverage of global and intercultural performances, and an in-depth exploration of the growing international importance of Performance Studies. Among the book's topics are the performing arts and popular entertainments, rituals, play and games, social media, the performances of the paleolithic period, and the performances of everyday life. Supporting examples and ideas are drawn from the social sciences, performing arts, poststructuralism, ritual theory, ethology, philosophy, and aesthetics. Performance Studies: An Introduction features the broadest and most in-depth analysis possible. Performance Studies: An Introduction is the definitive overview for undergraduates at all levels and beginning graduate students in performance studies, the performing arts, and cultural studies. This new edition is also supported by a fully updated companion website, offering a variety of interactive resources, teaching tools, and research links"--

What is an "air-to-air shot"? If you have to go for "ADR," can you use a "couch drop"? Hint: It's not something you swallow. All these terms and countless more are defined In the remarkable Blumenfeld's Dictionary of Acting and Show Business. Author Robert Blumenfeld combines his expertise from years of experience In show business with meticulous research to present a work that is comprehensive and user friendly. This complete reference book on the art, craft, and business of entertaining is a must-have for every fan, teacher, student, amateur, and professional."--Jacket.
