Abstract

EURASIAN THEATRE: DANCE AND PERFORMANCE BETWEEN EAST AND WEST FROM CLASSICAL ANTIQUITY TO THE PRESENT. By Nicola Savarese, trans. by Richard Fowler, updated and ed. by Vicki Ann Cremona. Holstebro, Denmark: Icarus Enterprise Publishing, 2010. 640 pp. Cloth, $35.00. This is a revision of Teatro e spettacolo fra Oriente e Occiente (Rome: Laterza, 1992) and serves as a valuable tool to those who cannot read Italian. First, it has significant scholarship that attempts to give an overview of East-West points of contact in the Greek, premodern, Enlightenment, and Romantic eras; second, it includes significant case studies of interchanges in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century between Japan and Europe; and, finally, it informs us of the perspectives behind the work of Odin Theatre and Eugenio Barba. The author, Nicola Savarese, is a member of the International School of Theatre Anthropology (ISTA) founded by Barba and collaborated with him on the important Dictionary of Theatre Anthropology (London: Routledge, 1991). If that book gives the high points of Barba-influenced physical theatre research, this volume attempts to ground the endeavor in the long-term history of cross-cultural performance exchanges. Savarese is attempting continental-style scholarship, which goes deep and writes more universal
