Classical Dance and Theatre in South-East Asia
By Miettinen, Jukka O.
Pp. xx, 175; 40 full page color plates of dancers and puppets, 9 text-figures of dancers (line-drawings), 117 black-and-white photos of dancers and puppets. Color pictorial laminated boards (hardcover) with matching color pictorial dust jacket, 4to. This lavishly illustrated volume provides an introduction to the rich tradition of Southeast Asian dance, theatre, and puppet theatre. In Southeast Asia, as elsewhere in Asia, it is often not possible to draw a clear line between dance and theatre. Most theatrical forms are performed by dance movements or with dance-like gestures to the accompaniment of music. Southeast Asian theatre is also characterized by the interaction of puppet theatre and living theatre which have their roots firmly in history (from the front jacket flap).
