by Vicki Mayer

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. Early in the twenty-first century, Louisiana, one of the poorest states in the United States, redirected millions in tax dollars from the public coffers in an effort to become the top location site globally for the production of Hollywood films and television series. Why would lawmakers support such a policy? Why would citizens accept the policy’s uncomfortable effects on their economy and culture? Almost Hollywood, Nearly New Orleans addresses these questions through a study of the local and everyday experiences of the film economy in New Orleans, Louisiana—a city that has twice pursued the goal of becoming a mov...

Yes, Mr. DeMille: At the Right Hand of a Hollywood God

by Phil A. Koury

Our first meeting was in the winter of 1946.

There was nothing epic in his manner. His voice did not
sound like thunder from Mount Olympus. He stood at the door
to his office, a foot propping it open, with a warm, interested,
almost shy smile.

"Please come in."

It wasn't what one might have expected by way of greeting,
no outburst ripping open the gates of Hollywood or flaying the
souls of extras. A warmth filled the visitor, a feeling that he was
the most important person DeMille was to see that day. Was this
the legendary DeMille, the bruising, blistering Alexander of the
sound stages, who practiced deliberate cruelties on players and
his staff out of sheer love of exhibitionism? Was ...

Performing Citizenship: Bodies, Agencies, Limitations (Performance Philosophy)

by Paula Hildebrandt

This open access book discusses how citizenship is performed today, mostly through the optic of the arts, in particular the performing arts, but also from the perspective of a wide range of academic disciplines such as urbanism and media studies, cultural education and postcolonial theory. It is a compendium that includes insights from artistic and activist experimentation. Each chapter investigates a different aspect of citizenship, such as identity and belonging, rights and responsibilities, bodies and materials, agencies and spaces, and limitations and interventions. It rewrites and rethinks the many-layered concept of citizenship by emphasising the performative tensions produced by various uses, occupations, interpretations and framings....

Actors and the Art of Performance: Under Exposure (Performance Philosophy)

by Susanne Granzer

Actors and the Art of Performance: Under Exposure combines the author's two main biographical paths: her professional commitment to the fields of both theatre and philosophy. The art of acting on stage is analysed here not only from the theoretical perspective of a spectator, but also from the perspective of the actor. The author draws on her experience as both a theatre actor and a university professor whose teachings in the art of acting rely heavily on her own experience and also on her philosophical knowledge. The book is unique not only in terms of its content but also in terms of its style. Written in a multiplicity of voices, the text oscillates between philosophical reasoning and narrative forms of writing, including micro-narratives, fables, parables, and inter alia by Carroll, Ho...

Unmanage

How does one say anything new in a field where everything has been said?Management being one of the most beaten-to-death topics in recent decades, its manyprinciples and platitudes have lost their sheen.“UnManage” is not an addition to the theory of management but a deeply personal perspective gained from hard experience guiding companies and senior professionals through their challenging transformational journeys.

Knight of the Dark Cross

by Jerry W. Hawkins

A Knight battles demonic vampires for the future of mankind.This was the second screenplay I wrote. It was the result of being left without supervision by my (now) ex-wife while she and the kids went out of town for a few days. During that time I watched Blade, Excalibur and a Clint Eastwood Western marathon. Like mixing chemicals in the lab the result comes out with a little bit of each element.This script is young. It’s raw. It’s a lot of my youth poured out on the page, and, if I say so myself, it’s fun as hell....

Woman: The Incredible Life of Yoko Ono

by Alan Clayson

“A lot of it – the lyric and the concept – came from Yoko” (John Lennon on Imagine)Born into a wealthy and powerful Japanese dynasty in 1933, Yoko Ono will always be famous as the wife and then widow of John Lennon, and for the extraordinary grip she exerted on his life. Her association with Lennon and The Beatles will always remain central to the story of Yoko Ono and her role in the arts and music industry over the last five decades. But there was far more to Yoko than that. She was already a noted presence on the cultural scene and a pioneer of performance art when she met the man who became her partner. Vilified by the British press with a fury that now seems both racist and misogynist, and forever in the shadow of her celebrated husband, Yoko Ono has not been accorded the ...
