Dance history and cultural politics: A study of contemporary dance in Taiwan, 1930s--1997 by Yaping Chen( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rather than presenting an all-encompassing, chronological narrative of Taiwan's dance history, the dissertation is organized as a series of topical studies of important developments and eminent phenomena. They include the formation of contemporary dance culture in Taiwan under Japanese colonialism (1930s--1945), the invented tradition of Chinese ethnic dance in the post-War years in relation to the ideologies of anti-communism and state nationalism (1950s--1960s), the quest for a modern Chinese dance theatre and the burgeoning of a Taiwanese consciousness (1970s), the politicalization of the dancing body and the emergence of feminist awareness in dance after the lifting of Martial law (1987--1990s), the influence of postmodern dance languages and the appropriation of postmodernist characteristics in Taiwan's modern dance (1990s), and finally the creation of Eastern body aesthetics for the purpose of the globalization of Taiwanese dance (1986--1990s)
American performance and the Cold War, 1947--1961 by Louis Scheeder( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This interdisciplinary study involves five main topics. The Roller Derby highlighted the gender crisis of post-war American life. Lee Strasberg's Method transformed Russian theatrical practice into a symbol of American nationalism and complemented Abstract Expressionism as a powerful exemplar of U.S. freedom and independence. The U.S. Attorney General created the Freedom Train, an ambulatory museum, and sent it forth to inoculate the American populace against foreign influences. However, the project's greatest success came in raising the aspirations of African-Americans, figuratively shackled by segregation. Live television drama embodied the fears and anxieties of the era before it was swept away by the reassuring formulaic composition of the TV Western. Toward the end of the period, the Twist emerged as the harbinger of the social, cultural, and political upheavals that would roil the 1960s. Each topic corresponds to a distinct permutation of containment theory and relates to a wide variety of popular and avant-garde performance

Bird's eye view : dancing with Martha Graham and on Broadway by Dorothy Bird( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bird's Eye View is a warm and human story that chronicles the early development of modern dance from a dancer's perspective. Dorothy Bird was the only dancer of her time to work with all the major choreographers in concert and on Broadway: George Balanchine, Agnes de Mille, Doris Humphrey, Helen Tamiris, Anna Sokolow, Herbert Ross, Jose Limon, and Jerome Robbins, among others. She recounts fascinating theater experiences with such luminaries as Orson Welles, Gertrude Lawrence, Carol Channing, Danny Kaye, and Elia Kazan. Dorothy shares her methods and experiences as a teacher for Balanchine and her twenty-five-year tenure at the Neighborhood Playhouse to highlight her philosophy of "giving back" to the next generation of performers. Of all the artists Dorothy Bird worked with, Martha Graham figures most strongly in the book and in her life. Her narrative about Graham's early creative process is a valuable addition to the literature, as is the story of her personal involvement with Graham. The reader gains an intimate insight into the love and fear instilled by Graham in her followers
