The journeys in Acting and Singing with Archetypes are based on the Voices of the Archetypes and Myths workshops that Frankie Armstrong has conducted throughout Europe, Australia, and the United States. Primarily geared toward theatre teachers, directors, and theatre workshop leaders, this groundbreaking, interactive book - with an accompanying CD - shows actors and singers how to expand their creative choices by taking journeys to find the archetypes within themselves. Archetypes are universal essences that we all recognize: the Mother, the Lover, the Trickster, the Spiritual and Temporal Leader. Each one is not a fully developed character but rather its essence - images, forms, voices, bodies and psychological elements - around which a performer can organize a portrayal and begin full character development. The first part of the book contains sixteen archetype journeys. Each archetype journey is accompanied by preparatory explorations for the voice, body, and imagination. The CD, sung by Ms. Armstrong, provides songs and examples of vocal ornamentation to prepare and assist the journeyer. The second part of the book contains suggestions on how to apply the discoveries to real acting situations, explaining how to use the archetypes in the creation of multifaceted characters and in classroom explorations such as mask making, improvisation, monologue, scene and song work, and devising theatre.

Marten and Hudson's biography explores the central paradox of The Kinks - a badly-behaved and permanently squabbling band that performed pop songs evoking a wistful and quirky view of English suburban life. From their '60s roots, when they hardly stood out from all the other Brit bands playing energetic electric versions of blues classics, The Kinks went on to create a distinctive string of atmospheric pop classics that could only have been English in provenance. The ups and downs of their tempestuous 20-year career are explored in detail and their influence upon everyone from Blur to Paul Weller is plausibly traced. As Ray Davies continues to re-interpret the band's classics alongside his solo songs, talk of a reunion continues. The Muswell Hillbillies may yet ride again, but whether they do or don't, their unique place in rock history is assured. Here is the definitive account of how The Kinks won it.
