Описание: First published in 1985, this book examines how workers theatre movements intended their performances to be activist — perceiving art as a weapon of struggle and enlightenment — and an emancipatory act. An introductory study relates left-wing theatre groupings to the cultural narratives of contemporary British socialism. The progress of the Workers’ Theatre Movement (1928-1935) is traced from simple realism to the most brilliant phase of its Russian and German development alongside which the parallel movements in the United States are also examined. A number of crucial texts are reprints as well as stage notes and glimpses of the dramaturgical controversies which accompanied them.
Автор: Fintan Walsh Название: Theatres of Contagion: Transmitting Early Modern to Contemporary Performance ISBN: 1350085987 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781350085985 Издательство: Bloomsbury Academic Рейтинг: Цена: 51570 T Наличие на складе: Нет в наличии. Описание: To what extent is theatre a contagious force, capable of undoing and enlivening people and cultures? This book responds to the current political and cultural climate by investigating theatre's status as a contagious cultural practice, questioning its role in the spread or control of medical, psychological and emotional conditions and phenomena. Observing a diverse range of practices from the early modern to contemporary period, essays consider how this contagion is understood to happen and operate, its real and imagined effects, and how these have been a source of pleasure and anxiety for theatre makers, audiences and authorities. Drawing on perspectives from medicine, neuroscience, psychology, religion, anthropology and law, essays collectively explore some of the ways in which theatre can be viewed as a powerful agent of containment and transmission. Among the works analyzed are a musical adaptation and an intercultural variation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet; a contemporary queer take on Hamlet; a site-specific adaptation of Elizabeth Inchbald's 1792 suppressed tragedy, The Massacre; the writings and influence of Artaud; productions at the Parisian Theatre du Grand-Guignol; the work of Punchdrunk and smartphone apps which simulate pathological phenomena.
Автор: Jean I. Marsden Название: Theatres of Feeling: Affect, Performance, and the Eighteenth-Century Stage ISBN: 1108476139 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781108476133 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 51360 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: Theatre and theatregoing was central to the cultural life of later eighteenth-century Britain. In this engaging work, Jean I. Marsden explores the playhouse as a source of emotion during a period when the ability to feel demonstrated moral worth. Using first-hand accounts, reviews, and illustrations to complement the drama of the era, Marsden examines why both critics and audiences elevated the theatre above the pulpit and how they experienced the plays and performances that they witnessed. Tears and even fainting fits were a common reaction to powerful productions, and playwrights sought to harness this emotion. The book explores this intersection of text, performance, and affect in a series of case studies of plays exploring British liberty, empire and the evils of antisemitism. With a focus on emotional response, Theatres of Feeling delivers a new approach to dramatic literature and performance, one that moves beyond more limited studies of text or performance.
Автор: Dorothy Figueira Название: Art and Resistance: Studies in Modern Indian Theatres ISBN: 2807610943 ISBN-13(EAN): 9782807610941 Издательство: Peter Lang Рейтинг: Цена: 41080 T Наличие на складе: Нет в наличии. Описание: This volume begins with the assumption that "Hindu" should not be conflated with "Indian" (as in the case of Orientalist criticism of Indian theatre) and that modern Indian theatre need not have its starting point in classical Sanskrit drama (as many Indologists would assert). Rather, this volume uses the insights of reception theory's critique of nationalist historiography to explore a possible framework with which one might theoretically locate the issues inherent in the terms "modern Indian theatre." Following the work of the eminent Indian comparatist, Sisir Kumar Das, this volume looks at how modernity in Indian theatre entails attempts of various Indian language groups to adjust to the forced cohabitation with both foreign and indigenous traditions. Rather than looking at Indian theatre as solely a process of Westernization or Sanskritization, this book looks at it as a response. The aesthetics of reception is then seen as a transactional and dialogical process wherein one is not always just responding to the Western or the classical Indian contexts. As opposed to most postcolonial and Indological readings, this volume traces the domain of the social imagination that has shaped modern Indian sensibilities across various languages and thereby resisting the hermetic aesthetic of reliance on hegemonic languages such as Sanskrit and English. The cover tries to reflect the overall approach of the volume. A theatrical play begins with the lighting of the ritual lamp to signify drama being given to humanity by Brahma, the Creator. According to the compendium on dramatic arts ( The Natyashastra, chapter 21), the hand gesture depicted here heralds the ensuing dramatic action.

Описание: Nathalie Sarraute (1900–1999) is regarded as one of the major French novelists of the twentieth century. Initially hailed as a leading theorist and exemplar of the nouveau roman, she has come to be regarded as an important author in her own right with her own distinctive concerns. In this major new study of Sarraute, the first in English since her death, Ann Jefferson offers a fresh perspective on Sarraute’s entire oeuvre - her novels, her outstanding autobiography Enfance and her influential critical writings - by focusing on the crucial issue of difference which emerges as one of her central preoccupations. Drawing on a variety of critical approaches, Jefferson explores Sarraute’s fundamental ambivalence to differences of various kinds including questions of gender and genre. She argues that difference is simultaneously asserted and denied in Sarraute’s work, and that the notion of difference, so often celebrated by other writers and thinkers, is shown in Sarraute’s work to the inseparable from ambiguity and anxiety.
Автор: William N. West Название: Theatres and Encyclopedias in Early Modern Europe ISBN: 0521030617 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780521030618 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 31490 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: In this book West explores what ‘theatre’ meant to medieval and Renaissance writers and places Renaissance drama within the influential context of the encyclopedic writings produced at the time. It was an encyclopedic culture, obsessed with sorting knowledge, and early encyclopedias presented themselves as textual theatres, in which everything knowable could be represented in concrete, visible form. Medieval and Renaissance plays, similarly, took encyclopedic themes as their topics: the mysteries of nature, universal history, the world of learning. But instead of transmitting authorized knowledge unambiguously, as it was supposed to be, the theatre created a situation in which ordinary experience could become a source of authority. West covers a wide range of works, from the encyclopedic texts of the Middle Ages and Renaissance to Marlowe’s Dr Faustus, Jonson’s The Alchemist, and Bacon’s Novum Organum, to provide a fascinating picture of the cultural life of the period.
