Yo', what's Happening(s)? If that question ever occurred to you, this compendium should prove invaluable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful sourcebook 23 Nov 2002
This book consists largely of essays written by various well known theorists and is very useful for writing essays as well as it is very interesting for anyone interested in performance.
Especially interesting is the first essay written by Micheal Kirby, 'Happenings: An Introduction'. About Matrix and Non-Matrixed performance, a fascinating subject.
All in all, this is a very interesting and useful book, I certainly recommend it to anyone interested in the subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars Avant-Garde Art Explained 7 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book, full of pictures, scripts, diagrams, and interviews, is an essential for any person studing the Avant-Garde movements of this century. It provides stories, opinions, and explinations from the people who created the movement itself, and also included inumerous examples of many different kinds of happenings. A facinating read for anyone interested in theatre or art.
