Books About Performing Arts

Trieste Publishing invites you to read books about performing arts and the history of its development.

Performing art refers to art forms in which artists use their voices, body, or inanimate objects to convey artistic expression. It differs from visual art, which is when artists use paints, canvas or various materials to create physical or static art objects. Performing art includes a number of disciplines that are performed in front of a live audience.

Theater, music, dancing and manipulation of objects, as well as other types of performances are present in all cultures of man. The history of music and dance dates to prehistoric times, while circus skills date to at least Ancient Egypt. Much performing art is performed professionally. Performance can be in purpose-built buildings such as theaters and opera houses, in open-air venues at festivals, in stages intents such as circuses and on the street.

Live performances in front of an audience are a form of entertainment. The development of audio and video recording has allowed for the private consumption of performing arts.

Performing art often seeks to express its emotions and feelings.
