9781559361552: Extreme Exposure: An Anthology of Solo Performance Texts from the Twentieth Century

Extreme Exposure: An Anthology of Solo Performance Texts from the Twentieth Century, edited by director Jo Bonney, features the work of 42 solo artists spanning the century-from Beatrice Herford in 1869 to Dawn Akemi Saito in 1994. Each artists' work is introduced by a journalist, artist, critic, agent, producer or educator who is intimately familiar with the material and its links to other forms such as vaudeville, theatre, cabaret, music, standup comedy, poetry, the visual arts and dance. In Bonney's words, "This anthology documents a part of our literary/stage history and offers the possibility of its being appreciated in a new context, for a new generation."

Includes work by Beatrice Herford, Jackie "Moms" Mabley, Ruth Draper, Lord Buckley, Brother Theodore, Lenny Bruce, Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner, Andy Kaufman, Ethyl Eichelberger, Laurie Anderson, Rachel Rosenthal, Spalding Gray, Eric Bogosian, Jessica Hagedorn, Diamanda Galás, Ann Magnuson, Rhodessa Jones, Tim Miller, John O'Keefe, Anna Deavere Smith, Danitra Vance, David Cale, Whoopi Goldberg, John Fleck, Reno, Heather Woodbury, Robbie McCauley, Lisa Kron, Brenda Wong Aoki, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Holly Hughes, Luis Alfaro, John Leguizamo, Josh Kornbluth, Deb Margolin, Roger Guenveur Smith, Anne Galjour, Danny Hoch, Marga Gomez, Mike Albo and Virginia Heffernan, Dael Orlandersmith and Dawn Akemi Saito.

From Library Journal:

Performance art can be traced back to the tradition of the "Griot" (African oral historian), Greek monologists, and medieval traveling minstrels. Solo performers all have a story to tell and in so doing speak directly to each member of their audiences. Each artist in this anthology adds a fresh voice to the genre. Readers are introduced to monologs and performance pieces that come from a variety of artists, such as Beatrice Herford and Ruth Draper, who delighted audiences during the first 50 years of the century, on to "Moms" Mabley, Lord Buckley, Lily Tomlin, Lenny Bruce, Whoopi Goldberg, Tim Miller, and many other contemporaries. Each artist is introduced by someone familiar with their work. There are photos of each performer along with brief biographies and bibliographies. This excellent companion to Glenn Alterman's Creating Your Own Monologue (LJ 2/15/00) is highly recommended for theater arts collections in public and university libraries.
