Full Length / Drama / 2m, 2f / Unit set This drama by the author of "Mass Appeal" explores the heart of a young man in crisis, inflamed by the people who claim to care for him: his mother, his football coach and his tutor. James Bernard is a star college quarterback whose innocence renders him devastatingly vulnerable. His mother and coach are pushing him to go "professional"; his tutor is concerned over the inherent corruption of organized athletics, believing that football is just another metaphor for war. "A thoroughly commendable play...A solid piece of work [with]...taut, provocative scenes." - Wall Street Journal

|Author||: Yvonne Daniel|
|Editor||: University of Illinois Press|
Concentrating on the Caribbean Basin and the coastal area of northeast South America, Yvonne Daniel considers three African-derived religious systems that rely heavily on dance behavior--Haitian Vodou, Cuban Yoruba, and Bahamian Candomble. Combining her background in dance and anthropology to parallel the participant/scholar dichotomy inherent to dancing's "embodied knowledge," Daniel examines these misunderstood and oppressed performative dances in terms of physiology, psychology, philosophy, mathematics, ethics, and aesthetics.

�I am here. You will never be alone. We are dancing for you.� So begins Cutcha Risling Baldy�s deeply personal account of the revitalization of the women�s coming-of-age ceremony for the Hoopa Valley Tribe. At the end of the twentieth century, the tribe�s Flower Dance had not been fully practiced for decades. The women of the tribe, recognizing the critical importance of the�tradition, undertook its revitalization using the memories of elders and medicine women and details found in museum archives, anthropological records, and oral histories. Deeply rooted in Indigenous knowledge, Risling Baldy brings us the voices of people transformed by�cultural�revitalization, including the accounts of young women who have participated in the Flower Dance. Using a framework of Native feminisms, she locates this revival within a broad context of decolonizing praxis and considers how this renaissance of�women�s coming-of-age�ceremonies confounds ethnographic depictions of Native women; challenges anthropological theories about menstruation, gender, and coming-of-age; and addresses gender inequality and gender violence within Native communities.

The title page indicates the book was completed in 1724. However, the cost of the thirty-five full-page plates precluded publication until 1735. In this treatise of two parts, Tomlinson (c. 1690-1753?) sets forth the principles of Baroque dance. Book one covers description of twenty nine steps; book two discusses the minuet, including four methods of performing the minuet step.

Dancing, with Mirrors is George Amabile's `lyrical retrospective', a thoughtful fragmentation and re-arrangement of his personal history. These eleven `cantos' tumble into and over each other in a rush of passion, memory, devastation, and quiet moments that promise renewal; here, Amabile's talent for sounding the complex depths of everyday life shines like a beacon.
