No study of modern theater is complete without a thorough understanding of the enormous influence of visionary genius Edward Gordon Craig. Born in England in 1872, Craig went on to become famous world-wide as an actor, manager, director, playwright, designer, and most importantly an author and theorist, whose books were translated into German, Russian, Japanese, Dutch, Hungarian, and Danish. Although an essential parallel to the European avant-garde, Craig was often read as "exceptional" and highly innovative in his native Britain, thus, The Mask not only appears as Craig's main cosmopolitan project but also at times functions as a surrogate stage for his experiments in theater practice. The book has a comprehensive chronology, extensive notes and a bibliography making it an essential text for undergraduates, postgraduates, actors, theatre professionals, designers, directors, researchers and writers in the fields of theatre studies (especially theater set and lighting) and theater history.

I wrote this book to share my experiences as a woman who has systematically learned to control her bladder after spending years suffering with incontinence, so that other women can learn the tools to regain control over their bladders and enjoy the feeling of independence that conscious control offers. My system for regaining bladder control, which I call the Felt Sense Method, includes four steps: 1.Looking at the psychological attitudes surrounding incontinence. 2.Acquiring knowledge and understanding about the condition. 3.Gaining understanding about the pelvic muscles and developing muscle contraction skills. 4.Committing to PRACTICE!!! Approximately 20% of the U.S. female population experiences symptoms of incontinence. This book provides a holistic approach to the problem, focusing on education and awareness, both physical and psychological. I also provide personal stories to humanize and illustrate the concepts and to encourage and reassure readers that they are not alone. The FSM itself is a three-step process. The first step is psychological awareness, the second step is anatomical understanding, and the third step is physical practice of specific contraction skills. Because of my background in humanistic psychology, I how important it is to provide specific psychological strategies and practices in order to help readers make making lasting life changes to address the problem of incontinence. Because of my background as a teacher and student of yoga for over 30 years, I have adapted a number of yoga postures so that any reader can use them to reinforce and deepen the muscle contraction skills that are part of the FSM. When a woman takes charge of her condition by following the psychological and physical exercises in this book to develop her awareness and control, she can find relief from incontinence and, as an added benefit, find more joy in her mind and body through her new understanding of herself.

Exposed by the Mask: Form and Language in Drama

In these four lectures Peter Hall reveals a lifetime of discoveries about classical theatre, Shakespeare, opera and modern drama. The central argument is that form and structured language paradoxically give freedom to power of thought and feeling, much as the masks of early Greek drama enabled actors to express extreme emotion. The mask may take many forms – the precise language of Beckett and Pinter, the classical form of Mozart’s operas, or Shakespeare’s verse. Reprinted to form part of the Oberon Masters series, a brand new collection of attractive hardbacks on key themes within the arts written by leading lights in each subject. ‘The wisest and most stimulating short book about theatre since Peter Brook’s The Empty Space - Charles Spencer, Sunday Telegraph

Comparing the Klan to European fascist movements that grew out of the crucible of the First World War, MacLean maintains that the remarkable scope and frenzy of the movement is less a measure of members' power within their communities, than of the challenges to that power posed by African Americans, immigrants, Jews, Catholics, labor, and white women and youth who did not obey the Klan's canon of appropriate conduct. Powerfully written and impeccably researched, Behind the Mask of Chivalry is a model examination of the interaction of race, class, and gender, and an unforgettable investigation of a crucial era in American history.

Breaking the Aesthetic Contract--film and Literature

"In this critique of aesthetics and the politics of representation, Taylor demonstrates astonishing breadth and depth in arguing for 'breaking the aesthetic contract' that excludes anything that does not conform to Eurocentric notions of beauty.... it brings to black studies and cultural critique an internationalism that emphasizes the richness of forms of creative expression outside the norms set by European aesthetics. Highly recommended..." —Choice Cultural critic Clyde Taylor exposes the concept of "art" as a tool of ethnocentricity and racial ideology. By examining various texts including ÂThe Birth of a Nation and ÂThe Cotton Club, Taylor demonstrates how rationales of "art" are used to mask personal, class, and cultural biases. Other works such as those by Toni Morrison, Chinua Achebe, and Spike Lee are scrutinized in terms of resistance to the dominant system of aesthetics.

Harrison Birtwistle: The Mask of Orpheus

Hailed at its premiere at the London Coliseum in 1986 as the most important musical and theatrical event of the decade, The Mask of Orpheus is undoubtedly a key work in Harrison Birtwistle's output. His subsequent stage and concert pieces demand to be evaluated in its light. Increasingly, it is also viewed as a key work in the development of opera since the Second World War, a work that pushed at the boundaries of what was possible in lyrical theatre. In its imaginative fusion of music, song, drama, myth, mime and electronics, it has become a beacon for many younger composers, and the object of wide critical attention. Jonathan Cross begins his detailed study of this 'lyric tragedy' by placing it in the wider context of the reception of the Orpheus myth. In particular, the significance of Orpheus for the twentieth century is discussed, and this provides the backdrop for an examination of Birtwistle's preoccupation with the story in a variety of works across his creative life. The sources and genesis of The Mask of Orpheus are explored. This is followed by a close reading of the work's three acts, analysing their structure and meaning, investigating the relationship between music, text and drama, drawing on Zinovieff's textual drafts and Birtwistle's compositional sketches. The book concludes by suggesting a range of contexts within which The Mask of Orpheus might be understood. Its central themes of time, memory and identity, loss, mourning and melancholy, touch a deep sensibility in late-modern society and culture. Interviews with the librettist and composer round off this important study.

The Mask, the Mirror, and the Illusion

In a world inundated by irrational thinking and insane decisions, with charismatic characters and bizarre relationships, it is time to pull the curtain aside and reveal the Illusionary Oz. It is time to step up to bat and acknowledge your part in this insanity of tangible players set against an inexplicable dreamscape. Paramount in a world of suffering, war and pain is your choice to awaken to the knowing that this is only an illusion and you must step into freedom and truth for all of us.With our external and internal world on the brink of self-destruction and sabotage, you no longer have the luxury of letting someone else carry the burden. It is time to shift your society into being spirit focused and away from an ailing ancient society extolling the ego. And it can only be done by correcting the misperceptions of each individual that make up that world.The Mask, the Mirror and the Illusion is a succinct guidebook for walking you out of an ego-centered illusion into a spirit-led reality based on its original creator. In any journey it is important to have news from those who have gone before to light the way. The author, Julie Hutslar, converses with her companion “J”, who represents the Christ Within and guides us all out of our drowsy slumber into full awakening of who we truly are. With that awakening comes the realization that we have participated in this illusion more than we would like to admit, and also we carry within us the power to transform it for us all. Ms Hutslar, author of Relationships: Gifts of the Spirit, speaks clearly and openly, has a gift of communication and translation and constantly questions accepted reality and authority. Her questions to J prove to be alleyways to self-awareness and she shares them with stories, analogies and examples. She also has a grasp on A Course in Miracles that helps her relay, through assistance from that text, the what nows as opposed to the whys. You are walked hand in hand through a maze of insane thinking we've all come to accept as normal and offered practical suggestions for seeing through this mind-created illusion to unveil the truth of who you really are. And it isn't about changing and becoming something else. It's about remembering who you have always been, but have simply been dreaming you are something you are not.
