Casting a Movement brings together US-based actors, directors, educators, playwrights, and scholars to explore the cultural politics of casting. Drawing on the notion of a "welcome table"—a space where artists of all backgrounds can come together as equals to create theatre—the book’s contributors discuss casting practices as they relate to varying communities and contexts, including Middle Eastern American theatre, Disability culture, multilingual performance, Native American theatre, color- and culturally-conscious casting, and casting as a means to dismantle stereotypes. Syler and Banks suggest that casting is a way to invite more people to the table so that the full breadth of US identities can be reflected onstage, and that casting is inherently a political act; because an actor’s embodied presence both communicates a dramatic narrative and evokes cultural assumptions associated with appearance, skin color, gender, sexuality, and ability, casting choices are never neutral. By bringing together a variety of artistic perspectives to discuss common goals and particular concerns related to casting, this volume features the insights and experiences of a broad range of practitioners and experts across the field. As a resource-driven text suitable for both practitioners and academics, Casting a Movement seeks to frame and mobilize a social movement focused on casting, access, and representation.

I kind of learned to fish on accident at least that's how I remember it. My wife was in France for college and despite our best efforts we couldn't seem to get the exchange rate right . That's when a friend loaned me a fishing rod and invited me out on the water. He said it was a cheap hobby and that's exactly what I needed. That chance outing started a slippery slope that changed my life forever. This book follows my 8 year angling journey. That slippery slope lead to a popular blog, a podcast, and some ProStaff deals. It also lead to many hardships, injuries, and broken fishing rods. The 42 stories in this book follow the author through a year on the water. Many species are pursued, some are caught, and most offer tips and tricks if you read between the lines. I hope you enjoy this journey and remember, Keep CASTING.

This interpretative study of Kikiscka's Expressionist work critically examines the claims for truth often made on behalf of Kokoschka's portraits, as well as the fundamental assumptions underlying his portraiture: the interchangeability of the physical and psychological, the psychological veracity of mythical narratives, and the ability of style to convey ethical and epistemological truth. This study also draws attention to the numerous parallels between Kokoschka's Expressionism and Freudian psychoanalysis, to the ways in which style in Vienna in 1900 could convey political (especially antifeminist and anti-Semitic) meanings.

Fly-Casting Finesse reveals expert John L. Field’s secrets of fly-casting based on modern observation, Field’s experience as an angler and casting teacher, and his collaboration with international members of casting clubs and schools. Whether the reader is a salt- or freshwater angler, Fly-Casting Finesse will help the caster increase accuracy and distance as well as hone presentation. It runs the gamut from one-hand spey techniques to dealing with wind on the flats. Although not a complete casting curriculum, the purpose of the book is to help anglers learn how to achieve more and know where to get assistance. Many of the skills at the highest levels of fly-casting require an educated sense of feeling in the rod hand that enables the caster to use finesse and seemingly minimal effort to manipulate the rod and line. The book will guide people down the path of acquiring that magical touch. According to Field’s philosophy, readers should first learn all casting styles and techniques to adapt them for any species and location they encounter, and secondly, they should know the history and purpose of presentation, so they can be innovative in the future. In applying this book to angling, he’s not trying to teach the reader how to catch more fish; he’s trying to help the reader catch the fish he or she wants.
