    --------------------

    Bogart (directing, Columbia Univ.) is the artistic director of the SITI Company, an ensemble-based theater
    company that she founded with Tadshi Suzuki. Her book is aimed at the practitioner but has value for the avid theater
    goer as well. What we see on stage, as a whole, is a culmination of bits and pieces, steps forward and backward, as a
    work of "art" is created and then presented. In each essay, Bogart discusses one of seven concepts violence, memory,
    terror, eroticism, stereotype, embarrassment, and resistance that can work as an obstruction or catalyst to this
    creative process. The concepts themselves are thought-provoking, and Bogart's text is even more so. For Bogart, these
    concepts incite energy (positive or negative) that both actors and director absorb and radiate. One suspects that the
    energy acts on the viewer (and reader) as well. A quote by Jeanette Winterson on the first page clearly illustrates
    Bogart's passion and love of the theater experience: "Art is the burning bush that both shelters and makes visible our
    profounder longings." For all theater collections. Susan L. Peters, Univ. of Texas Medical Branch on Galveston
