Abstract

Nightwood Theatre is the longest-running and most influential feminist theatre company in Canada. Since 1979, the company has produced works by Canadian women, providing new opportunities for women theatre artists. It has also been the “home company” for some of the biggest names in Canadian theatre, such as Ann-Marie MacDonald. In Nightwood Theatre, Scott describes the company’s journey toward defining itself as a feminist theatre establishment, highlighting its artistic leadership based on its relevance to diverse communities of women. She also traces Nightwood’s relationship with the media and places the theatre in an international context by comparing its history to that of like companies in the U.K. and the U.S.

Abstract

Dans les années précédant la Première Guerre mondiale, les arts de la scène connaissent un essor étonnant à Montréal. Visible dans les journaux, un éveil culturel sans précédent prend la forme d’articles en tous genres qui mènent à la naissance de la critique théâtrale professionnelle au Canada français. Objet de suspicion, le théâtre ne manque pas de provoquer dans les journaux des prises de position singulières et d’âpres discussions quant aux modèles à suivre et à la voie à prendre pour fa...

Abstract

Entre 1870 et 1914, alors que de grandes nations européennes sont en construction et que les révolutions secouent le continent, le théâtre fin-de-siècle affirme la continuité du drame historique romantique en contestant pourtant ses valeurs : l'héroïsme et la noblesse d'âme sont désormais suspects et invalidés, la scène européenne préfère les petits faits aux grands évènements et les faiblesses des grands hommes à leurs moments de gloire. On voit alors sur scène, chez Strindberg, Sardou, Rost...

Abstract

Qu’est-ce que l’histoire du théâtre médiéval ? Plus que l’histoire du théâtre au Moyen Âge, c’est celle de la définition de l’objet « théâtre médiéval » par des savants, archivistes, historiens ou littéraires, dont le présent volume retrace le parcours et éclaire les choix. Comment ces pères fondateurs ont-ils conceptualisé, documenté et compris le théâtre médiéval ? Quels paradigmes ont déterminé leurs discours et transformé cet objet scientifique en discipline ? Entre parcours académiques e...

Abstract

Les travaux rassemblés dans cet ouvrage s’efforcent de poser un regard neuf su...

Abstract

From 1890 until 1938 in Vienna, Jewish theatre was a lively and fascinating part of the theatrical scene. Yiddish operettas and melodramas, serious plays and so-called Jargonschwänke were staged. The widespread texts of these Jewish theatre-evenings, in Yiddish and German, are discussed and analysed in this work.

Abstract

This is the first full-length study of Shelley’s plays in performance. It offers a rich, meticulously researched history of Shelley’s role as a playwright and dramatist and a reassessment of his "closet dramas" as performable pieces of theatre.With chapters on each of Shelley’s dramatic works, the book provides a thorough discussion of the poet’s stagecraft, and analyses performances of his plays from the Georgian period to today. In addition, Mulhallen offers details of the productions Shelley saw in England and Italy, many not identified before, as well as a vivid account of the actors and personalities that constituted the theatrical scene of his time. Her research reveals Shelley as an extraordinarily talented playwright, whose fascination with contemporary theatrical theory and practice seriously challenges the notion that he was a reluctant dramatist.Prof. Stephen Behrendt (Nebraska) has described the book as "wonderfully convincing" and "something wholly new in Shelley studies", while Prof. Tim Webb (Bristol) describes Mulhallen as having a "more precisely developed sense of the theatrical possibilities of Shelley's work than almost anybody who has written about Shelley".

The Theatre of Shelley is essential reading for anyone interested in Romanticism, nineteenth-century culture and the history of theatre.
