Vessela WarnerUniversity of Illinois Press announces the publication of International Women Stage Directors -- which features articles by our own Associate Professor Dr. Vessela Warner.

international-women-stage-directorsEach of the book's 24 chapters surveys the development of feminism in a different country and explores the historical place of women in the theatre directing business. Vessela's section is, naturally, about the women who have distinguished themselves as directors in Bulgaria.

It's another impressive achievement in the career of Dr. Warner, and an important and interesting topic besides! The book is available now from the publisher.

“If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery--isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you'll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is.”
-- 'Factotum,' Charles Bukowski
