  • 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.

    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.

    - The Fifty Sonnets
    af Kelechukwu Brnfre

    Les Cinquantes Sonnets is the first book by poet Kelechukwu Brnfre (www.kelechukwubrnfre.com) This is my first book of poetry that includes my signature poem "e;Zero."e;I wrote this book as a gift to my fiancee at the time for her birthday. I wrote 34 poems for her 34th birthday in the form of Sonnets. I was reading Shakespeare at the time and I was inspired by his sonnets but I formed all of these poems in 16 lines because her favorite number was 16. The first 34 poems were influenced by her and the last 17 poems were influenced by a mixture of people, emotions and situations.I am very thankful for Erica Walker reading it over and encouraging me to make all of last 17 stay consistent with a theme of love, a subject I struggle to write about because it is so subjective. Loving a family member or your children is different from a person you are involved with intimately in a relationship.The format of this book starts with zero and goes to fifty. I used French because I am bilingual French and it seemed to fit the scheme and format of the subject matter in the book.

Moreover because there is a paucity of information and very few books available on such people as audio artists, sound designers and location sound recordists, this book and the following volume will be invaluable to those interested in analogue sound on film production period.

  • Thriller af Gregory G. Sarno Spar 16%
    - Scripting Seat-Gripping Suspense
    af Gregory G. Sarno

    The Thriller: Scripting Seat-Gripping Suspense plumbs nine-score thrillers for recurring features that build nape-prickling, heart-pounding suspense. Fodder for analysis embraces domestic and foreign fare, classic and contemporary, ranging from Ghost, Speed, Seven, Psycho, and The Silence of the Lambs to La Femme Nikita and Yogen [Premonition].Text eschews a connecting-the-dots, painting-by-numbers approach, in belief that formulas drain the lifeblood of creativity and inevitably spawn a ho-hum product. That said, the eight factors culled from the covered films constitute useful tools in the screenwriter's arsenal.Perhaps the best groundwork for a thriller is infiltrating the ATF/FBI/IRA, or a brigade of arms-running mercenaries. Short of that, watching films and reading scripts will work wonders. In that spirit, the book debuts three feature-film scripts for critical scrutiny: mystery thriller "e;Stateline"e;; police thriller "e;Cashing Out"e;; supernatural thriller "e;Birthmarks."e;

  • Secret History of Magic af Peter Lamont Spar 28%

    Pull back the curtain on therealhistory of magic and discoverwhy magic reallymatters If you read a standard history of magic, you learn that it begins in ancient Egypt, with the resurrection of a goose in front of the Pharaoh. You discover how magicians were tortured and killed during the age of witchcraft. You are told how conjuring tricks were used to quell rebellious colonial natives. The history of magic is full of such stories, which turn out not to be true. Behind the smoke and mirrors, however, lies the real story of magic. It is a history of people from humble roots, who made and lost fortunes, and who deceived kings and queens. In order to survive, they concealed many secrets, yet they revealed some and they stole others. They engaged in deception, exposure, and betrayal, in a quest to make the impossible happen. They managed to survive in a world in which a series of technological wonders appeared, which previous generations would have considered magical. Even today, when we now take the most sophisticated technology for granted, we can still be astonished by tricks that were performed hundreds of years ago. The Secret History of Magic reveals how this was done. It is about why magic matters in a world that no longer seems to have a place for it, but which desperately needs a sense of wonder.

  • Meaning of the Circus af Paul Bouissac
    - The Communicative Experience of Cult, Art, and Awe
    af Paul Bouissac

    This book documents and discusses the meaning(s) of the creative process at play in the crafting and staging of circus acts. It highlights the experience of circus artists as their skills develop and mature into public performances that create aesthetic and emotional values in the modern economy of live spectacles. It scrutinizes the meaning that circus acts produce for the spectators and for the artists themselves who live this process from the inside. This is a book for those studying semiotics and wanting to see it applied to a real life milieu in accessible and passionate prose.The Meaning of the Circus is grounded on the personal experience of Professor Paul Bouissac as both a circus entrepreneur and a researcher with decades of primary material on the significance of past and contemporary circus acts. It is based on substantial accounts provided by many men and women who have agreed to share the challenges, joys, and anxieties of their life as artists. Personal and rigorous, it contributes to the hermeneutics of the circus arts by adding existential depth to the production and reception of their performances.

  • Single Season Sitcoms of the 1990s af Bob Leszczak Spar 14%
    - A Complete Guide
    af Bob Leszczak

    During the "e;Must See TV"e; 1990s, Americans enjoyed such immensely popular sitcoms as Friends, Seinfeld, Home Improvement and The Drew Carey Show. Shows that did not make the ratings cut numbered in the hundreds-the emergence of new networks and cable channels airing original programming resulted in a vast increase in short-lived sitcoms over the previous decade. Some of these "e;flops"e; were actually quite good and deserved a better fate. The author revisits them-along with the "e;dramedies"e; of the day-with detailed entries providing production and broadcast information, along with critical analyses, and recollections by cast and crew members. A subsection highlights sitcoms that returned for an abbreviated second season. Dozens of cast and crew photographs are included.

  • Pink-Slipped af Jane M Gaines
    - What Happened to Women in the Silent Film Industries?
    af Jane M Gaines

    Women held more positions of power in the silent film era than at any other time in American motion picture history. Marion Leonard broke from acting to cofound a feature film company. Gene Gauntier, the face of Kalem Films, also wrote the first script of Ben-Hur. Helen Holmes choreographed her own breathtaking on-camera stunt work. Yet they and the other pioneering filmmaking women vanished from memory. Using individual careers as a point of departure, Jane M. Gaines charts how women first fell out of the limelight and then out of the film history itself. A more perplexing event cemented their obscurity: the failure of 1970s feminist historiography to rediscover them. Gaines examines how it happened against a backdrop of feminist theory and her own meditation on the limits that historiography imposes on scholars. Pondering how silent era women have become absent in the abstract while present in reality, Gaines sees a need for a theory of these artists' pasts that relates their aspirations to those of contemporary women. A bold journey through history and memory, Pink-Slipped pursues the still-elusive fate of the influential women in the early years of film.

  • Michael Bay  af Lutz Koepnick
    af Lutz Koepnick

    If size counts for anything, Michael Bay towers over his contemporaries. His summer-defining event films involve extraordinary production costs and churn enormous box office returns. His ability to mastermind breathtaking spectacles of action, mayhem, and special effects continually push the movie industry as much as the medium of film toward new frontiers. Lutz Koepnick engages the bigness of works like Armageddon and the Transformers movies to explore essential questions of contemporary filmmaking and culture. Combining close analysis and theoretical reflection, Koepnick shows how Bay's films, knowingly or not, address profound issues about what it means to live in the late twentieth- and early twenty-first centuries. According to Koepnick's astute readings, no one eager to understand the state of cinema today can ignore Bay's work. Bay's cinema of world-making and transnational reach not only exemplifies interlocking processes of cultural and economic globalization. It urges us to contemplate the future of moving images, of memory, matter, community, and experience, amid a time of rampant political populism and ever-accelerating technological change. An eye-opening look at one of Hollywood's most polarizing directors, Michael Bay illuminates what energizes the films of this cinematic and cultural force.

He explores the gods and divinatory arts of the legendary Sumerians and the star-wise Babylonians, including the birth of astrology. He examines the afterlife beliefs of the ancient Egyptians and the dream interpretation practices and oracles of ancient Greece, including the mysteries of Eleusis and the magical philosophy of Plato, Socrates, and other Greeks. He uncovers the origins of Gnosticism and the suppression and banishment of magic by the post-pagan, Christian emperors of Rome. Seligmann reviews the principles of alchemy, sharing famous transmutations and allegorical illustrations of the alchemical process and explores the Hermetica and its remarkable adepts. Investigating the Middle Ages, the author discusses the work of European magicians of the time, including Albertus Magnus, Roger Bacon, Agrippa, Nostradamus, and Pico Della Mirandola. He studies the medieval practices of devil worship, witchcraft, and black magic, as well as the ';Cabala' in both its Hebrew and Christian forms. He also examines the art of the Tarot and many lesser known divination techniques. He explores the development of secret societies, including Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism, in the 17th century and the increase in occult publications and magical science in the 18th century. First published in 1948, this history of magic and the occult seeks to ';mirror' the magical worldview throughout the ages. Beautifully illustrated with images from the author's rare library, this collector's edition features all of the artwork--more than 250 images--from the original 1948 edition.

  • Performance Studies af Erin Striff
    af Erin Striff

    What is performance? We do not need to be in a theatre to think about the theatricality of how we behave in culture, but can a performance exist if there are no spectators? How do we know when performances are taking place if there is no curtain rising and falling? What does the act of performance achieve? How does performance studies attempt to answer those questions?This collection of lively and stimulating articles on performance studies provides an understandable introduction to the field, and to the way in which performance touches all of our lives - from the rituals and ceremonies in which we partake, to the way we present ourselves depending on the company we keep. Together these articles help clarify what constitutes performance studies and introduce the reader to the many theoretical perspectives - including feminist, queer, post-structuralist and post-colonial - which are used to study performance in culture. Acts considered range from those that can be easily identified as performance, such as the strip-show, to the more theoretically complex, such as performative speech. One of the first of its kind on performance studies, this reader is an essential text for all those with an interest in the subject, or who are approaching it for the first time.
