Film & The Performing Arts Bookshelf

From the early experimental films of Luis Buńuel to Tim Burton's latest blockbuster; from George Balanchine's classic dances to Michael Clark's radical subversion of the same; and from Robert Wilson's seminal discipline-crossing theater works to contemporary underground performances created for the Performa biennial, we are pleased to offer an ever-expanding list of essential books on today's most influential figures in the Performing Arts as well as classics such as Amos Vogel's Film as a Subversive Art.

Film & The Performing Arts Bookshelf

The French publisher Editions Dis Voir was the first to document the films of Wong Kar Wai, director of Chungking Express (above).

"I didn’t know what would happen tomorrow, but I knew what had happened today. After I finished a day of shooting, then I knew what would happen next."

Wong Kar Wai
