The idiots by John Rockwell( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lars von Trier was the wunderkind of European cinema in the 1990s, a guiding light of the Dogma 95 movement, and a film-maker who, more than any of his peers, divided critics and spectators. In keeping with Dogma principles, The Idiots (1998) was shot with a hand-held camera, without ornamental music and on real locations. Set in a commune, the film sparked great controversy for showing a group of young people in search of their 'inner idiots'. Yet it moved many in its patent concern for showing people in primal states and the tragedies that precipitate and result from those states." "As well as being a Dogma film, The Idiots is quintessential von Trier and, in John Rockwell's view, perhaps his most powerful work. It forms a trilogy - the 'Good Woman' trilogy - with Breaking the Waves (1996) and Dancer in the Dark (2000). Rockwell shows how The Idiots relates to the other two films in addition to von Trier's celebrated early work in Danish television and his foray into directing Wagner's Ring cycle at the Bayreuth Festival. The result is a rich and illuminating interpretation of the key work of one of the most fascinating and misunderstood film-makers of recent years."--Jacket

Taken mostly from the Times, the reviews and essays also include pieces from seventeen other sources, such as the Los Angeles Times, The New Republic, Musical Quarterly, Opera, Opera News, and The Village Voice." "These writings epitomize Rockwell's unique vision of the arts scene over the past forty years, with commentary on classical music (including the full breadth of contemporary composition), rock, dance, art, film, theater, books, general arts topics, and reports from abroad."--BOOK JACKET
Radical bodies : Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, and Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955-1972 by Ninotchka Bennahum( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August 1960, Anna Halprin taught an experimental workshop attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer (along with Trisha Brown and other soon-to-be important artists) on her dance deck on the slopes of Mount Tamalpais, north of San Francisco. Within two years, Forti's conceptually forceful Dance Constructions had premiered in Yoko Ono's loft and Rainer had cofounded the groundbreaking Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies reunites Halprin, Forti, and Rainer for the first time inmore than fifty-five years. Dance was a fundamental part of the art world in the 1960s, the most volatile decade in American art, offering a radical image of bodily presence in a moment of revolutionary change. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer-all with Jewish roots-found themselves at the epicenter of this upheaval. Each, in her own tenacious, humorous, and critical way, created a radicalized vision for dance, dance making, and, ultimately, for music and the visual arts. Placing the body and performance at the center of debate, each developed corporeal languages and methodologies that continue to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day, enabling a critical practice that reinserts social and political issues into postmodern dance and art. 00Exhibition: Oakland Museum of California, Oakland, USA (29.04-29.08.2017)
