Summary Book Review Don't Act, Just Dance :

Download or read book Don't Act, Just Dance written by Catherine Gunther Kodat and published by Rutgers University Press. This book was released on 2014-12-26 with total page 228 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: At some point in their career, nearly all the dancers who worked with George Balanchine were told “don’t act, dear; just dance.” The dancers understood this as a warning against melodramatic over-interpretation and an assurance that they had all the tools they needed to do justice to the steps—but its implication that to dance is already to act in a manner both complete and sufficient resonates beyond stage and studio. Drawing on fresh archival material, Don’t Act, Just Dance places dance at the center of the story of the relationship between Cold War art and politics. Catherine Gunther Kodat takes Balanchine’s catch phrase as an invitation to explore the politics of Cold War culture—in particular, to examine the assumptions underlying the role of “apolitical” modernism in U.S. cultural diplomacy. Through close, theoretically informed readings of selected important works—Marianne Moore’s “Combat Cultural,” dances by George Balanchine, Merce Cunningham, and Yuri Grigorovich, Stanley Kubrick’s Spartacus, and John Adams’s Nixon in China—Kodat questions several commonly-held beliefs about the purpose and meaning of modernist cultural productions during the Cold War. Rather than read the dance through a received understanding of Cold War culture, Don’t Act, Just Dance reads Cold War culture through the dance, and in doing so establishes a new understanding of the politics of modernism in the arts of the period.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Apparition of Splendor looks in depth at Marianne Moore's elaborately constructed, multi-dimensional poems of her 1950s-60s celebrity phase, in which, cross-dressed as George Washington, she presented her poetry as part of a comedic performance. This biography shows how her poems challenge the highbrow hierarchy of art and invite the readers into the process of making meaning out of their daily lives.

Book excerpt: Apollo's Angels is a major new history of classical ballet. It begins in the courts of Europe, where ballet was an aspect of aristocratic etiquette and a political event as much as it was an art. The story takes the reader from the sixteenth century through to our own time, from Italy and France to Britain, Denmark, Russia and contemporary America. The reader learns how ballet reflected political and cultural upheavals, how dance and dancers were influenced by the Renaissance and French Classicism, by Revolution and Romanticism, by Expressionism and Bolshevism, Modernism and the Cold War. Homans shows how and why 'the steps' were never just the steps: they were a set of beliefs and a way of life. She takes the reader into the lives of dancers and traces the formal evolution of technique, choreography and performance. Her book ends by looking at the contemporary crisis in ballet now that 'the masters are dead and gone' and offers a passionate plea for the centrality of classical dance in our civilization. Apollo's Angels is a book with broad popular appeal: beautifully written and illustrated, it is essential reading for anyone interested in history, culture and art.

Download or read book Popcorn in Paradise written by John Robert Colombo and published by New York : Holt, Rinehart and Winston. This book was released on 1980 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Here, in one glittering volume, replete with tinsel, and dripping with love and venom, is a collection of over 3,000 quotes by some 700 movie personalities--those who have lived and toiled in Hollywood since the birth of the movie industry. In a sense these quotes give the essence and flavor of Hollywood as nothing else can. The cast of characters includes: Greta Garbo, Bob Hope, Elizabeth Taylor, W.C. Fields, Bette Davis, Alfred Hitchcock, Groucho Marx, Cecil B. DeMille, Sammy Davis Jr., Marlene Dietrich, Sir Laurence Olivier, John Wayne, Woody Allen, Laurel and Hardy, and hundreds more. A special chapter is devoted to Sam Goldwyn, Hollywood's leading independent film producer for 35 years. "Popcorn" and "paradise" may seem contradictory, but just as Hollywood ranges from the ridiculous to the sublime, so these two words sum up and typify what Hollywood was, is, and doubtless always will be so long as the silver screen maintains its hold on our lives.
