Professor Chrissie Harrington’s ‘Recommended Read’:
Editors: Marilyn Wyers and Osvaldo Glieca
“In this book the editors, Wyers and Glieca, are successful in promoting a greater interest in inter-disciplinary and collaborative practice. They bring together diverse contributions from practitioners who are looking beyond the perceived confines of their disciplines and exploring new modes of devising, making and performing. Their investigations have the potential to impact on the ways in which performance is perceived, and subsequently created.
Specifically, music and sound are key to all of the twelve contributions, and movement is frequently explored to both enhance and transform the potential of performance from concept to realisation. The issue of presence, newness, immediacy and experience is a common theme running through the research practice that includes opera, contemporary choreography, social dance and music forms, sound/image spaces, and audio/visual media productions. In most cases, practice is informed by theory, and adds to the depth of debate and scholarly rigor. At other times, a more documentary approach tells us what happened, and proposes new research possibilities. The book includes some provocative texts, with room for others to take forward – most especially in the field of corporeality and multi-dimensional performance modes. Highly recommended.”
