  • Døden kommer om eftermiddagen af Ernest Hemingway
    af Ernest Hemingway

    Døden kommer om eftermiddagen rummer kvintessensen af Hemingway og er skrevet først i 1930‘erne på hans livs og forfatterskabs højde. Bogen drejer sig om tyrefægtning, tapperhed og fejhed, om mod, teknik og historie. Men hovedtemaet forgrener sig til mange sidespor og lag, som alle tjener til at kaste nyt lys over mennekset og forfatteren Ernest Hemingway.Ernest Hemingway, 1899-1961, en af det 20. århundredes vigtigste og mest indflydelsesrige USA-forfattere. Har ry som stoisk, macho og eventyrer. Fortællestilen er sproglig skrabet med få adjektiver - antydningens teknik - som tjente til inspiration for andre forfatetre. Han led af depressioner og begik selvmord i 1961. Nobelpris 1954.

  • Farlig sommer af Ernest Hemingway
    af Ernest Hemingway

    Antonio Ordóñez og Luis Miguel Dominguín er to af de helt store spanske tyrefægtere i 1950‘erne. I "Farlig sommer" kortlægges rivaliseringen mellem dem i sommeren 1959. Det er fortællingen om opkomlingen Ordóñez, der er såret efter at være blevet stanget, men som bliver ved med at kæmpe, og om den erfarne Dominguín, hvis stolthed og selvtillid drager ham ind i kampen mod den unge Ordóñez.Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961) var meget optaget af tyrefægtning og har i tidlige værker som "Solen går sin gang" (1926) skrevet fiktion over den dramatiske sportsgren. I "Farlig sommer" er fiktion skiftet ud med reportage.Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) en af det 20. århundredes vigtigste og mest indflydelsesrige USA-forfattere. Har ry som stoisk, macho og eventyrer.

  • Danske rejsende cirkus- og gøglerslægter af Anders Enevig
    af Anders Enevig

    Mange cirkusfolk, artister, gøglere og deres efterkommere har gennem tiden haft lyst til at finde deres egne rødder. Det er ikke nemt, når man stammer fra et omflakkende folkefærd, der i mange tilfælde har fløjet under offentlighedens radar. I 1960‘erne gav cirkusforskeren Anders Enevig sig til i samarbejde med gøglerslægternes gamle at samle oplysninger om de forskellige slægter. Den samling ligger til grund for bogen "Danske rejsende cirkus- og gøglerslægter", som er et unikt stykke danmarkshistorie. Bogen er interessant både for dem, der kan spore deres egen slægt tilbage til de rejsende, men også for andre, der interesserer sig for etnografi og lokalhistorie.Anders Enevig (f. 1923-2013) var en dansk forfatter, historiker og modstandsmand. Han er særligt kendt for sine realistiske og hjertevarme skildringer af gøglere, cirkusartister, sigøjnere, sprittere og andre subsistensløse, som han blandt andet mødte som politibetjent på Nørrebro. Anders Enevig var desuden en af drivkræfterne bag kampen for bevaring af Cirkusbygningen, som efter årevis af utrætteligt arbejde blev renoveret i 1983 og fredet i 1988.

  • Cirkusprinsessen Elvira Madigan af Herta J. Enevoldsen
    af Herta J. Enevoldsen

    Den smukke Elvira Madigan vokser op blandt cirkusfolket i 1800-tallet. Hendes skønhed og talent har gjort hende berømt i hele landet, men bag den succesfulde facade gemmer sig en ung pige, hvis kærlighedsløse tilværelse er styret af en hård og dominerende mor. Men da Elvira møder den unge, svenske løjtnant Sixten Sparre, får både liv og kærligheden ny glød. Før første gang i hendes liv er der en, der holder af hende og ikke af de penge, hun kan indbringe, og hun bliver stormende forelsket i ham. Men hendes mor, der ser sin billet til rigdom forsvinde ud af sine hænder, nægter at lade de to unge ses, og da Elvia går bag sin mors ryg, spærrer hun den unge pige inde. Elvira og Sixteen udtænker en desperat plan, men skæbnen vil det anderledes, og tragedien truer lige om hjørnet...Herta J. Enevoldsen (1915-1997) er en dansk forfatter og debuterede i bogform i 1972 med "København brænder", men havde inden da fået udgivet utallige noveller i ugeblade som f.eks. Hjemmet. Hendes romaner om store figurer i verdenshistorien, hvor romantik og historieskrivning går hånd i hånd, skaffede hende hurtigt en stor læserskare og cementerede hendes plads som en af Danmarks største børnebogsforfattere.

  • Natsværmer af Susanne Krage Spar 18%
    - Et liv blandt kunstnere og kakaduer
    af Susanne Krage

    Fra at være gogo-danser, Lommer-pige, blive mor som 18-årig, til at medvirke i film, blive hyret til en date med shahen af Iran, en nat med Simon Spies, hun har været luksus-escortpige, ombejlet af Københavns kulturelle og lettere berusede elite, slået igennem som kunstner, været gift med forfatteren Henrik Stangerup, skilt igen, mistet sin datter og fået hende tilbage.Med sit omtumlede og begivenhedsrige liv er 65-årige Susanne Krage et frisk pust i en tid, hvor værdierne er kernefamilie, speltbrød og samtalekøkken. Mens unge kvinder slider sig i stykker for at passe ind i konceptet, fastholder Susanne sin personlige livsfilosofi: Hellere kaotisk end kedeligt.I denne bog fortæller hun om, hvordan det gik til, at arkitekt-datteren fra den katolske pigeskole fik smag for det uborgerlige med al den charme og forvirring, der hører med til et liv delt mellem barer, teatre, rigmænd og kreative sjæle. Med stor fortællelyst lader hun os få et kig ind i 70’ernes vilde københavnerliv, den kulørte, kunstneriske og indimellem forbudte verden. Hold fast og læs med, for kedeligt… det er det i hvert fald ikke.

  • So, Anyway... af John Cleese
    - The Autobiography
    af John Cleese

    A candid and brilliantly funny memoir......of how a tall, shy youth from Weston-super-Mare went on to become a self-confessed comedy legend.En route, John Cleese describes his nerve-wracking first public appearance at St Peter s Preparatory School at the age of eight and five-sixths; his endlessly peripatetic home life with parents who seemed incapable of staying in any house for longer than six months; his first experiences in the world of work as a teacher who knew nothing about the subjects he was expected to teach; his hamster-owning days at Cambridge; and his first encounter with the man who would be his writing partner for over two decades, Graham Chapman.And so on to his dizzying ascent via scriptwriting for Peter Sellers, David Frost, Marty Feldman and others to the heights of Monty Python.Punctuated from time to time with John Cleese s thoughts on topics as diverse as the nature of comedy, the relative merits of cricket and waterskiing, and the importance of knowing the dates of all the kings and queens of England, this is a masterly performance by a former schoolmaster.

  • Farlige sylfider. Studier i den romantiske ballet i Frankrig og Danmark af Erik Aschengreen
    af Erik Aschengreen

    "Hvor tæt er forbindelsen mellem balletten og de øvrige kunstarter? Hvad er på overfladen? Hvad stikker dybere? Léandre Vaillat skriver i sin bog om Marie Taglioni, at man ikke må bedømme periodens balletter ud fra en litterær målestok. "Det væsentlige er at give ballerinaerne et net påskud til at danse.""I "Farlige sylfider" beskriver den store danske balletkritiker Erik Aschengreen den romantiske ballets gennembrud i Danmark og Frankrig. Han beskriver den romantiske opblomstring i balletten hos den store danske koreograf og danser August Bournonville med det fransk klingende navn og Frankrigs egen berømte romantikker digter og kritiker Théophile Gautier.Erik Aschengreen (f. 1935) er en dansk universitetslektor, forfatter og balletkritiker. Fra 1964 til 2005 skrev Erik Aschengreen om ballet og dans for Berlingske og har sideløbende udgivet en lang række bøger om ballet og balletdansere.

  • Der går dans. Den Kongelige Ballet 1948-1998 af Erik Aschengreen
    af Erik Aschengreen

    "Dans er øjeblikkets kunst. Når tæppet går ned, tilhører forestillingen historien. Danserne retter energien og engagementet mod morgendagens træning på vej mod en ny forestilling, mens vi går hjem med lykkelige minder om øjeblikke, hvor dansen gjorde os lette eller forløste os gennem tragediens smerte. At opleve dans er et personligt møde mellem tilskueren i den mørke sal og danseren, badet i scenens lys."Den store danske balletkritiker Erik Aschengreen fortæller om Den Kongelige Ballets historie fra 1948 til 1998. Hvert årti har sit eget kapitel, der fortæller om de største opsætninger, de individuelle dansere og alt det andet, Den Kongelige Ballet består af.Erik Aschengreen (f. 1935) er en dansk universitetslektor, forfatter og balletkritiker.

  • Balletbogen. Bind 2 af Erik Aschengreen
    af Erik Aschengreen

    "I årene mellem cirka 1920 og 1950 var kampen mellem modern dance og ballet ofte hård og meget bitter. Den ny bevægelse skulle finde egne ben at stå på, hvilket i realiteten ofte ville sige, at danserne lå på gulvet og brugte det som partner mere end som et sted til at sætte af fra, hvilket er tilfældet i klassisk ballet, hvor det vægtløse og lette er idealet.""Balletbogen" er en grundbog for alle balletinteresserede. Den kommer rundt om alle sider af den danske ballet, helt tilbage fra den spæde begyndelse, dens store opblomstring under August Bournonvilles intet mindre end geniale visioner og lederskab i 1800-tallet, til da balletten gjorde sit indtog på fjernsynsskærme landet over, og til dansen i slutningen af det tyvende århundrede bevægede sig uden for teatrets scener og mødte publikum på en ny måde."Balletbogen" er forsynet med koreografbiografier, beskrivelser af nogle af tidens største balletter, en liste over opførsler af August Bournonvilles balletter på Det Kongelige Teater og en fyldestgørende litteraturliste.Erik Aschengreen (f. 1935) er en dansk universitetslektor, forfatter og balletkritiker.

  • Through the Prism of the Senses af Andrea Davidson
    - Mediation and New Realities of the Body in Contemporary Performance. Technology, Cognition and Emergent Research-Creation Methodologies
    af Andrea Davidson, Isabelle Choiniere & Enrico Pitozzi

    Over the past decades, a fundamental epistemological shift has transformed notions of performativity and representation in the arts under the influence of new technologies. Mediation has challenged both spectators' and performers' conventions of corporeality, embodiment, cognition, and perception. Centring on contemporary synaesthetic and multimodal works, Through the Prism of the Senses examines new theory and practice in body-based arts and contemporary performance. Three main chapters present three distinct strands of methodological enquiry, one from each author, creating a work that resonates with artistic and philosophical enquiry. This book is a vital contribution to discussions surrounding research creation and the body in relation to digital media, highlighting the ways in which new technologies confront the sensate, somatic body. A French-language version is to be published by Presses de l'Universit du Qubec (ISBN 978-2-76055-148-0). This includes additional chapters in English by Erin Manning, David Howes, and Luc Vanier and Elizabeth Johnson. A Spanish-language version is to be published by Centro Editoral Universidad de Caldas.

  • Star Attractions
    - Twentieth-Century Movie Magazines and Global Fandom
     

    During Hollywood's "e;classic era,"e; from the 1920s to 1950s, roughly twenty major fan magazines were offered each month at American newsstands and abroad. These publications famously fed fan obsessions with celebrities such as Mae West and Elvis Presley. Film studies scholars often regard these magazines with suspicion; perhaps due to their reputation for purveying scandal and gossip, their frequent mingling of gushing tone, and blatant falsehood.Looking at these magazines with fresh regarding eyes and treating them as primary sources, the contributors of this collection provide unique insights into contemporary assumptions about the relationship between fan and star, performer and viewer. In doing so, they reveal the magazines to be a huge and largely untapped resource on a wealth of subjects, including gender roles, appearance and behavior, and national identity.Contributors: Emily Chow-Kambitsch, Alissa Clarke, Jonathan Driskell, Lucy Fischer, Ann-Marie Fleming, Oana-Maria Mazilu, Adrienne L.

  • Irish on the Move af Granshaw Michelle Granshaw
    - Performing Mobility in American Variety Theatre
    af Granshaw Michelle Granshaw

    A little over a century ago, the Irish in America were the targets of intense xenophobic anxiety. Much of that anxiety centered on their mobility, whether that was traveling across the ocean to the U.S., searching for employment in urban centers, mixing with other ethnic groups, or forming communities of their own. Granshaw argues that American variety theatre, a precursor to vaudeville, was a crucial battleground for these anxieties, as it appealed to both the fears and the fantasies that accompanied the rapid economic and social changes of the Gilded Age.

  • On the High Wire af Philippe Petit
    af Philippe Petit

    In this poetic handbook, written when he was just twenty-three, the world-famous high-wire artist Philippe Petit offers a window into the world of his craft. Petit masterfully explains how preparation and self-control contributed to such feats as walking between the towers of Notre Dame and the World Trade Center. Addressing such topics as the rigging of the wire, the walker's first steps, his salute and exercises, and the work of other renowned high-wire artists, Petit offers us a book about the ecstasy of conquering our fears and reaching for the stars.

  • American West on Film af Johnny D. Boggs
    af Johnny D. Boggs

    The American West on Film chronicles 12 Hollywood motion pictures that are set in the post-Civil War American West, including The Ox-Bow Incident, Red River, High Noon, The Searchers, The Magnificent Seven, Little Big Man, and Tombstone. Each film overview summarizes the movie's plot, details how the film came to be made, the critical and box-office reactions upon its release, and the history of the time period or actual event. This is followed by a comparison and contrast of the filmmakers' version of history with the facts, as well as an analysis of the film's significance, then and now.Relying on contemporary accounts and historical analysis as well as perspectives from filmmakers, historians, and critics, the author describes what it took to get each movie made and how close to the historical truth the movie actually got. Readers will come away with a better understanding of how movies often reflect the time in which they were made, and how Westerns can offer provocative social commentary hidden beneath old-fashioned "e;shoot-em-ups."e;

  • Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Performing Arts Workforce af Tobie S. Stein
    af Tobie S. Stein

    Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Performing Arts Workforce examines the systemic and institutional barriers and individual biases that continue to perpetuate a predominately White nonprofit performing arts workforce in the United States. Workforce diversity, for purposes of this book, is defined as racial and ethnic diversity among workforce participants and stakeholders in the performing arts, including employees, artists, board members, funders, donors, educators, audience, and community members. The research explicitly uncovers the sociological and psychological reasons for inequitable workforce policies and practices within the historically White nonprofit performing arts sector, and provides examples of the ways in which transformative leaders, sharing a multiplicity of cultural backgrounds, can collaboratively and collectively create and produce a culturally plural community-centered workforce in the performing arts.

  • Talking #browntv af Aldama Frederick Luis Aldama
    - Latinas and Latinos on the Screen
    af Aldama Frederick Luis Aldama & Nericcio William Anthony Nericcio

    Like two friends sitting down in front of the television together, in Talking #browntv, Frederick Luis Aldama and William Anthony Nericcio dialogue about the representations of Latina/os in American television and film from the twentieth century to the present day. One part conversation, one part critique, one part visual cultural studies, and one part rant against the culture industry profiting off warped caricatures of Latina/o subjectivities, Aldama and Nericcio analyze the ways in which Latinx performers have been mediated-with varying degrees of complexity-on the American screen. A comprehensive review of the history of Mexicans, Mexican Americans, Hispanics, Chicana/os, Latina/os, and Latinx performers in television and film, Talking #browntv boldly interrogates one of the largest paradoxes in the history of American television: Why are there so few Latina/os on television, and why, when they do appear, are they so often narcos, maids, strumpets, tarts, flakes, and losers? From the subversive critiques embedded in well-loved children's characters like Speedy Gonzalez to the perpetuation of racial stereotypes in modern-era pornography, from Eva Longoria as ethnic mannequin to J-Lo flipping the sexy Latina music video on its head in "e;I Luh Ya Papi,"e; and with more than 150 full-color images, Aldama and Nericcio seek to expose the underlying causes as to why Latina/os constitute only 2 percent of mainstream cultural production when they're the majority minority in the US. In a moment when anti-Mexican and anti-immigrant rhetoric oozes from TV sets and medias platform, Talking #browntv emerges as a bold antidote, an eloquent rejoinder, and a thoughtful meditation on Latina/os on the American screen and in America today.

Cindy Hing-Yuk Wong situates festivals within changing global practices of film, including their important ties to both Hollywood and independent cinema. She explores how these events have become central in the construction of cinema knowledge as well as the behind-the-scene mechanics of finance, distribution, and evaluation. By linking general structures and connections to specific films and auteurs, Wong addresses the components and creation of film festivals that continue to reshape filmmaking as art and business.

  • Local Acts af Cohen-Cruz Jan Cohen-Cruz
    - Community-Based Performance in the United States
    af Cohen-Cruz Jan Cohen-Cruz

    An eclectic mix of art, theatre, dance, politics, experimentation, and ritual,community-based performance has become an increasingly popular art movement in the United States. Forged by the collaborative efforts of professional artists and local residents, this unique field brings performance together with a range of political, cultural, and social projects, such as community-organizing, cultural self-representation, and education. Local Acts presents a long-overdue survey of community-based performance from its early roots, through its flourishing during the politically-turbulent 1960s, to present-day popular culture. Drawing on nine case studies, including groups such as the African American Junebug Productions, the Appalachian Roadside Theater, and the Puerto Rican Teatro Pregones, Jan Cohen-Cruz provides detailed descriptions of performances and processes, first-person stories, and analysis. She shows how the ritual side of these endeavors reinforces a sense of community identification while the aesthetic side enables local residents to transgress cultural norms, to question group habits, and to incorporate a level of craft that makes the work accessible to individuals beyond any one community. The book concludes by exploring how community-based performance transcends even national boundaries, connecting the local United States with international theater and cultural movements.

  • Johnny Depp Starts Here
     

    From beloved bad-boy to cool and captivating maverick, Johnny Depp has inspired media intrigue and has been the source of international acclaim since the early 1990s. He has attracted attention for his eccentric image, his accidental acting career, his beguiling good looks, and his quirky charm. In Johnny Depp Starts Here, film scholar Murray Pomerance explores our fascination with Depp, his riddling complexity, and his meaning for our culture. Moving beyond the actor's engaging and inscrutable private life, Pomerance focuses on his enigmatic screen performances from A Nightmare on Elm Street to Secret Window.The actor's image is studied in terms of its ambiguities and its many strange nuances: Depp's ethnicity, his smoking, his tranquility, his unceasing motion, his links to the Gothic, the Beats, Simone de Beauvoir, the history of rationality, Impressionist painting, and more. In a series of treatments of his key roles, including Rafael in The Brave, Bon Bon in Before Night Falls, Jack Kerouac in The Source, and the long list of acclaimed performances from Gilbert Grape to Cap'n Jack Sparrow, we learn of Johnny onscreen in terms of male sexuality, space travel, optical experience, nineteenth-century American capitalism, Orientalism, the vulnerability of performance, the perils of sleep, comedy, the myth of the West, Scrooge McDuck, Frantois Truffaut, and more.Johnny's face, Johnny's gaze, Johnny's aging, and Johnny's understatement are shown to be inextricably linked to our own desperate need to plumb performance, style, and screen for a grounding of reality in this ever-accelerating world of fragmentation and insecurity. Both deeply intriguing and perpetually elusive, Depp is revealed as the central screen performer of the contemporary age, the symbol of performance itself.No thinker has meditated on Johnny Depp this way before-and surely not in a manner worthy of the object of scrutiny.
