Abstract

O cinema como objeto de estudo para verificar o modo pelo qual a resistência política à ditadura militar foi representada no período a ela posterior, dando destaque à participação feminina. A análise fílmica possibilitaria observar quais elementos estariam presentes em cena para retratar tal questão, e os estudos de gênero permitiria debater de que forma as relações sociais entre os sexos eram abordadas nos filmes selecionados. Trata-se, portanto, de compreender não apenas como a resistência à ditadura é representada, mas, sobretudo, como esse passado é reconstruído nas diversas formas em que pode ser materializado pela perspectiva feminista, considerando que esta trabalha com elementos fundamentais na luta em torno da memória e pelo reconhecimento de histórias esquecidas. Nesse sentido, procuro privilegiar os pontos onde se cruzam os estudos da memória e o pensamento feminista, visto que este atinge profundamente as necessidades de um resgate histórico ao denunciar o esquecimento de reivindicações, lutas e ações das mulheres.

Abstract

Circos e Palhaços Brasileiros apresenta, em forma de catálogo, documentação iconográfica e escrita de alguns circos brasileiros e seus palhaços. De outubro de 1997 a julho de 2000 foram visitados diversos circos, em várias regiões do país, com o objetivo de documentar o universo dos palhaços, dentro e fora do picadeiro. Além do resgate do seu repertório cênico (entradas, esquetes, comédias e dramas), foram incluídos neste registro os recursos materiais dos circos (pequenos e grandes), os palhaços no circo-teatro, os palhaços de palco, os tapa-buracos dos circos grandes, o papel do palhaço nos espetáculos dos pequenos circos, a quantidade e qualidade do repertório encenado, as opiniões dos artistas acerca da profissão etc.

Abstract

A obra é fruto de tese defendida no Programa de Pós-Graduação em Artes Cênicas da UFBA, em 2007. Aborda questões relativas ao teatro em meio ao ideário contracultural, investindo sua argumentação contra a afirmação de que a produção teatral que se dá de 1968 a 1974 é destituída de criticidade. Propondo outro ponto de vista, o livro apresenta e analisa a produção teatral para afirmar que não houve um "vazio cultural" durante o período em que o governo civil-militar esteve no poder e utilizou a censura e a repressão para calar os artistas.

Abstract

É impossível pensar o ser humano contemporâneo se não imerso em um ambiente naturalmente híbrido: biológico e tecnológico em constante interação. É esse o convite que o trabalho de Ivani nos faz, observar o corpo dançando ao sabor da tecnologia, numa metáfora para essa relação. O título é um dos primeiros livros sobre o tema lançado pela Editora.

Importante contribuição para a construção do entendimento da dança como área do conhecimento. Resultado de estudos e pesquisas de alguém que vem, de muito, instigada com a busca de uma compreensão da realidade a partir de formas contemporâneas de percepção e visão de mundo onde a arte, e portanto, a dança, emerge como um sistema de alta complexidade.

Abstract

"How can people in the spotlight control their self-representations when the whole world seems to be watching? The question is familiar, but not new. Julia Fawcett examines the stages, pages, and streets of eighteenth-century London as England's first modern celebrities performed their own strange and spectacular self-representations. They include the enormous wig that actor Colley Cibber donned in his comic role as Lord Foppington--and that later reappeared on the head of Cibber's cross-dressing daughter, Charlotte Charke. They include the black page of Tristram Shandy, a memorial to the parson Yorick (and author Laurence Sterne), a page so full of ink that it cannot be read. And they include the puffs and prologues that David Garrick used to heighten his publicity while protecting his privacy; the epistolary autobiography, modeled on the sentimental novel, of Garrick's protégée George Anne Bellamy; and the elliptical poems and portraits of the poet, actress, and royal courtesan Mary Robinson, a.k.a. Perdita.&#xD;&#xD;Linking all of these representations is a quality that Fawcett terms ""over-expression,"" the unique quality that allows celebrities to meet their spectators' demands for disclosure without giving themselves away. Like a spotlight so brilliant it is blinding, these exaggerated but illegible self-representations suggest a new way of understanding some of the key aspects of celebrity culture, both in the eighteenth century and today. They also challenge divides between theatrical character and novelistic character in eighteenth-century studies, or between performance studies and literary studies today. The book provides an indispensable history for scholars and students in celebrity studies, performance studies, and autobiography—and for anyone curious about the origins of the eighteenth-century self."

Abstract

The fact that you are reading these words means you have already stepped over the threshold of a collection of what the author calls reflexive études. Here, the author is expanding on the word étude as it is used in music’s most ‘classical’ department, where it denotes a practice piece designed to address an isolated problem of musical technique, and transforms it to serve as a practical thought exercise for the (theatre) field as a whole. The reflexive étude therefore serves as a practical-theoretical exercise in trying to think one’s way to freedom from the (often) unconscious or semi-conscious assumptions and obstacles that the art actor constantly has to contend with. Implicit here is the notion that thinking through also constitutes an exercise and that the art of thinking is inextricably associated with art in general. Like musical exercises, the reflexive études are characteristically specific: each focuses on practice relevant to something particular – perhaps one performance, an issue of acting technique, an acute theatre -sociological situation, or the question of what a theatre script can and should look like. The ambition is to develop what I have called a reflexive dramaturgy. This conception of dramaturgy does not limit itself to analyses of the theatrical text, or to the theatre’s arsenal of calculated stage effects, but is capable of expanding its reach to identify other kinds of action that exert a powerful influence, despite their being seemingly inconspicuous. In this sense, reflexive dramaturgy becomes a kind of theoretical practice that seeks to identify and articulate those actions which (reflexively) set the limits for aesthetic experience, but which are often insufficiently covered by the ways that art and theatrical art view themselves.&#xD;

Abstract

Could we understand, in biological terms, the unique and fantastic capabilities of the human brain to both create and enjoy art? In the past decade neuroscience has made a huge leap in developing experimental techniques as well as theoretical frameworks for studying emergent properties following the activity of large neuronal networks. These methods, including MEG, fMRI, sophisticated data analysis approaches and behavioral methods, are increasingly being used in many labs worldwide, with the goal to explore brain mechanisms corresponding to the artistic experience. The 37 articles composing this unique Frontiers Research Topic bring together experimental and theoretical research, linking state-of-the-art knowledge about the brain with the phenomena of Art. It covers a broad scope of topics, contributed by world-renowned experts in vision, audition, somato-sensation, movement, and cinema. Importantly, as we felt that a dialog among artists and scientists is essential and fruitful, we invited a few artists to contribute their insights, as well as their art. Joan Miró said that “art is the search for the alphabet of the mind.” This volume reflects the state of the art search to understand neurobiological alphabet of the Arts. We hope that the wide range of articles in this volume will be highly attractive to brain researchers, artists and the community at large.

Abstract

This book about the early screen representation of Auschwitz-Birkenau deals with the classic Holocaust film made in 1948 in Poland by Auschwitz survivor, director Wanda Jakubowska. The Last Stage (or The Last Stop) is a pioneering work – the first narrative film to portray the former Nazi German camp. Haltof discusses Jakubowska’s life and career before World War II, her imprisonment during the war, the prominent role that she played in the nationalized postwar Polish cinema, and problems she faced during the script stage. The monograph also discusses the unusual circumstances that surrounded the production of the film at Auschwitz-Birkenau and summarizes critical debates surrounding its release. Screening Auschwitz is the first detailed monograph on this classic Holocaust film. The book incorporates new materials and sources obtained through extensive archival research, and examines the impact of the film on other Holocaust narratives.

Abstract

Musical worlds in Yogyakarta is an ethnographic account of a vibrant Indonesian city during the turbulent early post-Soeharto years. The book examines musical performance in public contexts ranging from the street and neighbourhood through to commercial venues and state environments such as Yogyakarta’s regional parliament, its military institutions, universities and the Sultan’s palace. It focuses on the musical tastes and practices of street workers, artists, students and others. From street-corner jam sessions to large-scale concerts, a range of genres emerge that cohere around notions of campursari (‘mixed essences’) and jalanan (‘of the street’). Musical worlds addresses themes of social identity and power, counterpoising Pierre Bourdieu’s&#xD;theories on class, gender and nation with the author’s alternative perspectives of inter-group social capital, physicality and grounded cosmopolitanism. The author argues that Yogyakarta is exemplary of how everyday people make use of music to negotiate issues of power and at the same time promote peace and intergroup appreciation in culturallydiverse inner-city settings.&#xD;Max M. Richter is director of the Monash Asia Institute and lecturer in Anthropology at Monash University, Australia. He has published in international journals and edited book collections, and has given presentations on Indonesian music and society in several countries and forums. His current research focuses on local-level music performance, intellectual/power-broker gatherings and centre/region identities in urban Indonesia.
