Mikhail Berkut is a critically acclaimed choreographer, stage producer and professional ballet teacher. Berkut has produced several videos on dance for adults and children. He has written many articles on dance for leading international magazines and is the author of several books, including his memoirs of his early family life and career in music and dance in his native Russia, North America and Europe. Origin of Mime and Dance is the culmination of his life's work. The result of decades of intensive research, Origin of Mime and Dance is an exploration of the motion of the human body and its gradual evolution from instinct to artifice - the long journey from unconscious reflex to self-conscious performance. The book is split into two sections: Natural Motion and Artificial Motion. Beautifully illustrated, it aims to clarify some basic principles regarding the anthropology and evolution of natural motion and its transformation into performed compositions. In the process, Berkut hopes to open up new ways of looking at these areas. 'Berkut's ability to tackle every subject from a practical, as well as an analytical point of view is always remarkable ... this comprehensive work fills an important gap ... It is a must for all dance-related organizations.' Hans-Theodor Wohlfahrt, Dance Critic and Historian '... a most important contribution to our knowledge of body movement in time and space, as an instrument of artistic expression.' Giorgio Tellan, Italian Art Historian

The 'ballet d'action' was one of the most successful and controversial forms of theatre in the early modern period. A curious hybrid of dance, mime and music, its overall and overriding intention was to create drama. It was danced drama rather than dramatic dance, musical drama rather than dramatic music. Most modern critical studies of the ballet d'action treat it more narrowly as stage dance and very few view it as part of the history of mime. Little use has previously been made of the most revealing musical evidence. This innovative book does justice to the distinctive hybrid nature of the ballet d'action by taking a comparative approach, using contemporary literature and literary criticism, music, mime and dance from a wide range of English and European sources. Edward Nye presents a fascinating study of this important and influential part of eighteenth-century European theatre.

Brian Boyd explains why we tell stories and how our minds are shaped to understand them. After considering art as adaptation, Boyd examines Homer's Odyssey and Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears a Who! demonstrating how an evolutionary lens can offer new understanding and appreciation of specific works. Published for the bicentenary of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of Origin of Species, Boyd's study embraces a Darwinian view of human nature and art, and offers a credo for a new humanism.
