Ofrecemos un nuevo volumen de la serie OXFORD HANDBOOKS IN MUSIC. Podemos enviar información del resto de volúmenes disponibles.

Esta nueva obra de referencia sirve para contemplar, de forma muy variada, una colección de artículos que llevan la danza y el teatro, y cualquier arte escénica, a un nivel académico muy interesante, con ensayos de expertos jóvenes y más experimentados y que trabajan en los vértices más importantes de cada campo.

La escena contemporánea ha bebido de las fuentas históricas clásicas, desde los ritos paganos a los griegos o romanos, desde la Rusia Bolchevique a la Nicaragua post-Sandinista o la China de la revolución cultural, a través de temas como la raza, el género, la espacialidad, los rituales o la biopolítica, el amor y la estética, la historiografía o el teatro musical.

Todo cabe en este interesante texto, como puede verse en el índice que acompañamos, y todo dentro de la gran clase académica de esta colección de Oxford Handbooks.
