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

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
