Share Article

Angelica Daniele’s new book Performance: The Collective and Introspective was released February 2011.

Performance: The Collective and Introspective

“It’s a book that will intrigue a dance-ready audience, but is accessible and relevant to all readers. The thoughts and emotions and their effects on the self as experienced through any form of public display are discussed in universal terms.”

Performance: The Collective and Introspective is a three-part research investigation that looks at the life of a performing artist, without filters, from a psychological perspective. The physical, mental, and emotional aspects of a dancer’s life on the stage are revealed through literature, a survey based research and personality study with children through professionals, and a personal account of the author’s experiences on and off the stage. It is a fearless account of the growth of an artist through building self-awareness.

“It’s a book that will intrigue a dance-ready audience, but is accessible and relevant to all readers. The thoughts and emotions and their effects on the self as experienced through any form of public display are discussed in universal terms,” says Daniele. “I hope this book draws attention to the field, and to the importance of self-reflection.”

Performance: The Collective and Introspective will be sold through the publisher at http://www.writelife.com and all major online book retailers. Angelica plans to host several book signings in the coming months in support of local dance companies in the Baltimore area, where she currently resides.

Daniele commented, “I wrote Performance to give something back to the dance field, and I want to continue in that act by sharing the fruits of my labor with the artists who have made my ideal profession a reality.”

Performance: The Collective and Introspective is published by WriteLife LLC, a collaborative publishing company based in Omaha, Nebraska. Please visit http://www.writelife.com for more information about how to obtain a copy.
