Summary "Performing artists - especially from dance and performance art, as well as opera - are involved to an increasing degree in the transfer between different media, not only in their productions but also the events, materials, and documents that surround them. At the same time, the focus on that which remains has become central to any discussion of performance. Performing Arts in Transition explores what takes place in the moments of transition from one medium to another, and from the live performance to that which 'survives' it. Case studies from a broad range of interdisciplinary scholars address phenomena such as: - the dynamics of transfer between the performing and visual arts - the philosophy and terminologies of transitioning between media - narratives and counternarratives in historical re-creations - the status of chronology and the document in art scholarship This is an essential contribution to a vibrant, multidisciplinary and international field of research emerging at the intersections of performance, visual arts, and media studies"-- Provided by publisher
