Monk Dancers of Tibet, Matthieu Ricard; Translated By Charles Hastings
13 Monk Dancers of Tibet

Matthieu Ricard; Translated By Charles Hastings

Shambhala, Boston, USA, 2003, 1-57062-974-9 / 9781570629747, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 21 Cms x 30 Cms Matthieu Ricard 
In the midst of the devastation that has been wrought on their culture, the monk dancers in the Shechen monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal, are devoted to preserving the sacred dances central to the Tantric tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. The dances, which originated in India and flourished for centuries in Tibet, are teaching stories—each mask, costume, movement, and gesture has a specific significance and embodies the values of Buddhism. The dances are the monks' spiritual gift to the lay community. The origin of the sacred Buddhist dance, or cham, goes back to the ninth century, when Guru Padmasambhava introduced Buddhism to Tibet. Through the ages, the practice has been advanced by great masters whose visionary experiences enriched and enhanced the dance forms. The sacred dances were then transmitted as accurately as possible by the masters' disciples from generation to generation. The dances are now preserved in exile in India, Nepal, and Bhutan, and have been presented in the West, by the monks of Shechen and other Tibetan monasteries, in the same spirit of sharing a profound inner experience. In vivid, full-color photos and illuminating text, the well-known author and photographer Matthiew Ricard reveals the painstaking preparations for and meanings behind the dances, as well as the intriguing history of this uniquely colorful teaching practice. Printed Pages: 128 with numerous colour photographs. 012008

With over 2,500 entries covering all aspects of dance, this unique dictionary is the only one of its kind available.

It provides all the information necessary for dance fans to navigate the current diverse dance scene. During the last twenty years the boundaries of dance have been radically redrawn. There has been an explosion of new activity within traditional forms like ballet, a stream of new dance languages invented by fresh generations of choreographers, and there is a growing appreciation of cultural dance forms from around the world. Fans today are likely to attend performances as varied as Spanish flamenco, Indian bharata natyam, Japanese butoh, classical ballet, and post-modern dance. With an emphasis on performance - the dance we see in our theatres today - readers will find both fact and analysis on a wide range of subjects, from styles of dance and the history of dance companies and their productions, to dancers, choreographers, and technical terms.

24 Two Plays: Indian History Made Easy. Life of Bagala

Badal Sircar; translated, and with an introduction, By Subhendu Sircar

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2009, 0198065493 / 9780198065494, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
Badal Sircar has written, acted in, directed, and produced some of the most influential and progressive plays of post-Independence India. The pioneer of an alternative people’s theatre movement in India?the ‘Third Theatre?–Sircar continues to work outside the conventional stage. This volume includes two of Sircar’s most important works: Indian History Made Easy (‘Sukhapathya Bharater Itihas? first produced in 1976) and Life of Bagala (‘Bagalacharitmanas? first produced in 1998). Indian History Made Easy is significant in forging a unique relationship between form and content. Using the form of classroom teaching?with teachers instructing students?the playwright covers more than three hundred years of British rule without developing a ‘story? Life of Bagala revolves around Bagala, and how, through supernatural intervention, he finds himself and ultimately takes a stand against injustice. Once he has gained courage, Bagala decides to throw away magic and act all by himself. The play reminds us that no change can be brought about by magic; it is only through human will and action that something worthwhile can be achieved. The comprehensive Introduction by Subhendu Sarkar discusses the playwright’s major works, draws attention to the significance of the two plays, and emphasizes on Sircar’s contribution to theatre in India. An exclusive interview with Badal Sircar, production history of his plays, and a special photo section are valuable inclusions. 030338
