The Dance of 17 Lives Excerpt :

In January 2000, two Ambassador taxis twisted their way up the narrow road leading towards Dharamsala in the Himalayan foothills of northern India - the home-in-exile of the Dalai Lama. In one taxi was a fourteen-year-old boy, the 17th Karmapa, one of the most important figures in Tibetan Buddhism. The boy's arrival in Dharamsala was the culmination of an extraordinary escape which had brought him 900 miles across the Himalayas, in conditions of high danger, from the monastery in Tibet where he had lived since he was seven years old. Fascinated by this charismatic young figure, Mick Brown travelled to Dharamsala to meet him, and found himself drawn into the labyrinthine - not to say surreal - web of intrigue surrounding the 17th Karmapa's recognition and young life.

The Dance of Life Excerpt :

A gripping and breathtaking family saga. Full of love and passion, cut short before it's time, not fully realized. Raul Almandres, a Latin dance instructor from Cuba is of a charming disposition and an unstoppable nature and becomes quite a controversial figure. Raul was raised based on the stories of the notable revolutionary Che Guevara, but when he heard from a friend about Israel and its young Democracy, he reaches a decision to move to Israel and learn about Western Culture. In Israel, Raoul meets a "Jewish Princess" from a good home, Noga Barnea, and the two are swept up in a life full of love and happiness. But one surprising summer evening, he goes out for a run in the pouring rain and mysteriously disappeared without a trace. Even more shocking and suspicious beliefs that he is a spy, a member of some unsavory organization or possibly an agent of an enemy nation was raised. Seven years would pass until the hard truth surfaced, in a tear-jerking narrative in which the author presents a deep message to the reader. The story is based on an interpretation of various events that occurred to the author on a trip to Cuba and in the descriptions of the places that are presented to the reader with the special aromas, colors and authentic atmosphere.

Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor 1980 1983 Excerpt :

As the 1970s gave way to the 80s, New York's party scene entered a ferociously inventive period characterized by its creativity, intensity, and hybridity. Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor chronicles this tumultuous time, charting the sonic and social eruptions that took place in the city’s subterranean party venues as well as the way they cultivated breakthrough movements in art, performance, video, and film. Interviewing DJs, party hosts, producers, musicians, artists, and dancers, Tim Lawrence illustrates how the relatively discrete post-disco, post-punk, and hip hop scenes became marked by their level of plurality, interaction, and convergence. He also explains how the shifting urban landscape of New York supported the cultural renaissance before gentrification, Reaganomics, corporate intrusion, and the spread of AIDS brought this gritty and protean time and place in American culture to a troubled denouement.

Moving Toward Life

  • Author : Anna Halprin

  • Release Date : 1995-12
  • Genre: Biography & Autobiography
  • Pages : 274
  • ISBN 10 : 0819562866

Moving Toward Life Excerpt :

The collected writings of one of the most influential luminaries of American dance. Anna Halprin is one of the most important innovators in the history of modern dance, performance art, and post-modern dance. Moving Toward Life brings together for the first time her essays, interviews, manifestos, and teaching materials, along with over 100 illustrations, providing a rich account of the work that radicalized an entire generation of performers. Since the late 1950s, Halprin has been at the forefront of experiments in dance, from improvisation and street theatre to dances in the environment and healing dances. A brief overview of Halprin's career shows how her work has prefigured — and transfigured — crucial developments in postmodern dance. In the 1960s, Halprin invented the "workshop," and in the wake of the Watts riots, her multiracial company broke boundaries in their confrontational political performances. In the 1970s, she organized "community rituals" to explore how individual creativity feeds positively into group dynamics. These healing social events led to her current work with cancer survivors and people challenging AIDS and their caregivers. Depicting Halprin's deep commitment to social change, Moving Toward Life presents an engaging, critical document of the life of one of the most influential and least known luminaries of American dance. Sally Banes and Janice Ross join Rachel Kaplan in providing introductory essays to sections of the book.
