The Theatre of images by Richard Foreman( Book )

31 editions published between 1977 and 2005 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three plays collected in The Theatre of Images challenge the conventional understanding of performance. In Pandering to the Masses: A Misrepresentation, Richard Foreman, a philosopher as well as a playwright, creates a reality on stage that reflects his own reality - focusing on familiar, everyday events with the addition of recorded voice and projected image. A Letter for Queen Victoria, by Robert Wilson, is an opera without singers. Verbal declamations take the place of arias, creating a spectacle without narrative structure through tableaux and gesture. Represented in comic-book form, The Red Horse Animation demonstrates the play's reliance on cinematic techniques in its composition. It is what author Lee Breuer calls "caption literature," a radical alternative drama documenting the conception of dramatic work. With introductory essays by Bonnie Marranca, this reissue of The Theatre of Images brings back to print one of the most influential books on the American avant-garde in the last two decades

Ecologies of theater : essays at the Century Turning by Bonnie Marranca( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do geography and climate influence a work? How is narrative embedded in landscape? What is the ecology of an image? In Ecologies of Theater, Bonnie Marranca elaborates a new perspective on performance that links ecology and aesthetics. She writes of dramaturgy as an ecology in the work of Robert Wilson, and the mus/ecology of John Cage; the autobiology of Rachel Rosenthal and spiritual style of Maria Irene Fornes and Meredith Monk; and the landscape histories of Heiner Muller and Isak Dinesen. In more than two dozen essays, Marranca considers theater history and the modernist heritage in the context of landscape, culture, and art

A Slice of life : contemporary writers on food( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Slice of Life is a collection of contemporary food writing that readers can really sink their teeth into. Represented here are some of the world's best known writers, many well known for their alimentary musings, others better known for their writings in other genres; all speak eloquently on the nature of food, language, and the adaptability of social customs. Bonnie Marranca has cooked up a tempting meal of writings that reflects on how the consumption of food--or the lack of it--takes on larger social significance. Garnishing the feast are Marranca's tantalizing introduction and Betty Fussell's meditation on the essential connection between food, existence, and the putting of pen to paper
