I Want to Be Ready: Improvised Dance As a Practice of Freedom

I Want to Be Ready: Improvised Dance As a Practice of Freedom

While scholars often celebrate the freedom of improvised performances, they are generally focusing on freedom from formal constraints. Drawing on the work of Michel Foucault and Houston Baker, among others, the author argues that this idea of freedom elides improvisation's greatest power: the most skillful improvisations negotiate an ever-shifting landscape of constraints. Simultaneous. Hardcover available. 186 pp.

Ida Lupino, Director: Her Art and Resilience in Times of Transition

Ida Lupino, Director: Her Art and Resilience in Times of Transition

"One of Hollywood’s few female directors, Ida Lupino was a true maverick, making movies with the same steely determination and emotional sensitivity that characterized her work as an actor. Therese Grisham and Julie Grossman’s thoughtful study sheds a welcome light on an oeuvre that has been too long obscured."
—J. Hoberman, author of "Film After Film: Or, What Became Of 21st Century Cinema?" Simultaneous. Hardcover available. 248 pp.
