Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: SECRETIVE SUBSTITUTION: So many teachings; With multiple meanings. Swallow your doctrines. Changeling adoptions. Know your own placement; You're the replacement. Carry your fother; Exchanged for another. They'll love you more than I do. More twisted than a corkscrew. They love you more than I do. The fleshiest part to cut through. The man he endorses. The changing of courses. I have felt. I have dealt. The movement of horses; They're running their courses. Their behavioral adaptions. Your use of contraptions. They'll love you more than I can. Shorten your own lifespan. They love you more than I can; After all, you're less than. Oh, what a pity; Interchanged for something pretty. Having other options. Changeling adoptions. Exultantly elated. Feelings unreciprocated. Periodical screenings. A multitude of meanings. They'll care for you more than I will. The lessons that they'll instill. They'll be softer with than I will. Shut your mouth and stay still. An unstated agreement. A non-mutual achievement. There are motions in movement; Where there's room for improvement. The progression of horses; They're citing their sources. A functional enhancement. Making strides with advancement. A transference of ownership. Superb one-upmanship. A nonreciprocal kinship. You have a gift to unrip.

Book The Contemporary Circus

Download or read book The Contemporary Circus written by Ernest Albrecht and published by Scarecrow Press. This book was released on 2006-10-10 with total page 294 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The fun, energy, and hard work integral to the exciting world of the circus is lovingly captured in The Contemporary Circus: Art of the Spectacular, an in depth look at the creative process of today's circuses. Through numerous personal interviews with directors, designers, composers and performers, author Ernest Albrecht provides a unique inside view of the journey through which the most innovative and exciting modern circuses are produced, from the director and production team to the performers, and from designing the circus to setting it to music. Case studies of specific productions by the Big Apple Circus, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, and Cirque du Soleil illuminate the artistic give-and-take necessary in such a collaborative process, proving the circus a true art form, one as artistic as theatre or dance. A variety of performers such as animal trainers, dancers, and clowns discuss their approach to their individual specialties, and the text concludes with an examination of the world's circuses and schools and their methods for training circus artists. A full photo spread of 30 beautiful photos will help inspire and enlighten artists and fans alike.

Download or read book Cirque Global written by Louis Patrick Leroux and published by McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP. This book was released on 2016-05-01 with total page 363 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: With a billion-dollar industry centred in Montreal, the province of Quebec has established itself as a major hub for contemporary circus. Cirque du Soleil has a global presence, and troupes such as Cirque Éloize and 7 doigts de la main are state-of-the-art innovators. The National Circus School of Montreal - the only state-funded elite training facility in North America - is an influential leader in artistry and technique. Montreal-based Cirque du Soleil’s Cirque du Monde supports arts for social change on many continents and is renowned for its social-circus training and research. Cirque Global is the first book-length study of this new variety of circus and its international impact. The contributors offer critical perspectives on this rapidly developing art form and its aesthetics, ethics, business practices, pedagogical implications, and discursive significations. Essays explore creative, entrepreneurial, and cultural forces that are shaping Quebec’s dynamic nouveau cirque. Lavishly illustrated with photographs from circus performances, the volume showcases Quebec circus’s hybrid forms, which have merged the ethos and aesthetics of European circuses with American commercial and industrial creativity. Cirque Global is the definitive study of the phenomenon of Quebec circus and is an important model for future research on contemporary circus.

Book The Meaning of the Circus

Download or read book The Meaning of the Circus written by Paul Bouissac and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2018-08-23 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book documents and discusses the meaning(s) of the creative process at play in the crafting and staging of circus acts. It highlights the experience of circus artists as their skills develop and mature into public performances that create aesthetic and emotional values in the modern economy of live spectacles. It scrutinizes the meaning that circus acts produce for the spectators and for the artists themselves who live this process from the inside. This is a book for those studying semiotics and wanting to see it applied to a real life milieu in accessible and passionate prose. The Meaning of the Circus is grounded on the personal experience of Professor Paul Bouissac as both a circus entrepreneur and a researcher with decades of primary material on the significance of past and contemporary circus acts. It is based on substantial accounts provided by many men and women who have agreed to share the challenges, joys, and anxieties of their life as artists. Personal and rigorous, it contributes to the hermeneutics of the circus arts by adding existential depth to the production and reception of their performances.

Book The End of the Circus

Download or read book The End of the Circus written by Paul Bouissac and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2021-08-12 with total page 334 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book analyses two features of the traditional circus that have come under increasing attack since the mid-20th century: the use of wild animals in performance and the act of clowning. Positioning this socio-cultural change within the broader perspective of evolutionary semiotics, renowned circus expert Paul Bouissac examines the decline of the traditional circus and its transformation into a purely acrobatic spectacle. The End of the Circus draws on Bouissac's extensive ethnographic research, including previously unpublished material on the training of wild animals and clown make-up, to chart the origins of the circus in Gypsy culture and the drastic change in contemporary Western attitudes on ethical grounds. It scrutinizes the emergence of the new form of circus, with its focus on acrobatics and the meaning of the body, showing how acrobatic techniques have been appropriated from traditional Gypsy heritage and brought into the fold of mainstream popular entertainment. Questioning the survival of the new circus and the likely resurgence of its traditional forms, this book showcases Bouissac's innovative approach to semiotics and marks the culmination of his ground-breaking work on the circus.
