Описание: In this first substantive study of directing Shakespeare in the USA, Charles Ney compares and contrasts directors working at major companies across the country. Because of the complexities of directing Shakespeare for audiences today, a director’s methods, values and biases are more readily perceptible in their work on Shakespeare than in more contemporary work. Directors disclose their interpretation of the text, their management of the various stages of production, how they go about supervising rehearsals and share tactics. This book will be useful to students wanting to develop skills, practitioners who want to learn from what other directors are doing, and scholars and students studying production practice and performance.

Описание: Actor-musicianship is a permanent feature of the musical theatre landscape. Actor-musician shows can be seen from Bradford to Broadway, from village halls to international arena tours. However, with the exception of a couple of academic papers, there has been nothing written about this fascinating area of theatre practice. Jeremy Harrison's book addresses this deficit, operating as both a record of the development of the actor-musician movement and as a practical guide for students, educators, performers and practitioners. It explores the history of actor-musicianship, examining its origins, as well as investigating – and offering guidance on – how this specialist form of music theatre is created. It, in turn, acts as a means of defining an art form that has to date been left to lurk in the shadows of musical theatre; a subset with its own distinctive culture of performer, maker and audience, but as yet no formal recognition as a specialism in its own right. The actor-musician show is multifarious and as such this book targets those interested in mainstream commercial work, as well as alternative and avant-garde theatre practice. The book draws together expertise from a range of disciplines with contributions from many of the leading figures in this field, including performers, directors, teachers, MDs, producers and writers. It also features a foreword by theatre director John Doyle.

Описание: This monograph undertakes the task of analysing the dynamics of the communication between the stage and the audience in what has been commonly referred to as ‘in-yer-face drama’. Rather than use the existing term the study proposes the aesthetic category of the sublime, which proves to be more fruitful, as it offers more precise tools for the analysis of the audience’s aesthetic response than does in-yer-face theatre.

Описание: In Britain he was known as the "Wild Swiss", but was nevertheless seen as a British artist: Henry Fuseli, born Johann Heinrich Fussli in 1741 and educated in
Zurich. After publishing a pamphlet against a corrupt local governor, who was consequently chased out of town, Fuseli was forced to emigrate and settled 1764 in London. He became
a member of the Royal Academy of Arts in 1790, professor of painting and history of art at the RA in 1799, and was elected Keeper of the RA in 1804.
He was buried at St.
Paul's Cathedral in 1825. This monograph shows Fuseli as a highly educated and sophisticated inventor of uniquely powerful and idiosyncratic images and surprising interpretations of
the great texts of world literature.
Fuseli is probably most famous for his paintings illustrating the works of William Shakespeare and John Milton, populated by elemental spirits,
goblins and other deliciously fantastic creatures, often infused with a playful ironic undertone. Besides, this book shows his early drawings, inspired by Hans Holbein and Michelangelo,
and his monumental historical paintings. It also presents little known aspects of Fuseli's work: portraits of fashionably dressed women with extravagant hairdos and erotic drawings,
offering yet another insight into the exuberantly fertile imagination of this master of the fantastic.
This book accompanies a retrospective at the Kun
thaus Zurich in collaboration with Tate Britain, where Fuseli's work will be on show in the exhibition "Gothic Nightmares: Fuseli Blake and the Romantic Imagination" in 2006.

Описание: Between 1791 and 1799 Swiss painter Henry Fuseli turned Milton`s Paradise Lost into a series of 40 pictures that were exhibited in London in 1799 and 1800. Starting from Fuseli`s adaptation, Cale analyses how visual practices impact on the act of reading and calls into question the separation of reading and viewing as autonomous aesthetic practices.
