Abstract

Artistic media seem to be in a permanent condition of mutation and transformation. Contemporary artists often investigate the limits and possibilities of the media they use and experiment with their crossing, upgrading and mutilation. Others explicitly explore the unknown space between existing media, searching for the hybrid beings that occupy these in-betweens. This fascinating volume explores the theme of mutating and adapting media in its relation to theatre and performance. How did different aspects of theatre evolve in a digital era? How did historical traditions in theatre adapt to new cultural contexts? How are other media remediated in contemporary performances? Does this eventually lead to a contamination or even a disintegration of what we call theatre, or on the contrary, to a revaluation? Bringing together international scholars and artists, the editors offer a comprehensive overview of the subject sensitive to the cross-disciplinary use of key concepts such as remediation, digitization, interactivity, corporeality, liveness, surveillance, spectacle, performativity and theatricality. The book guides readers new to the area of intermediality, as well as experienced researchers into one of the most dynamic fields of scholarship.

Abstract

In quarant’anni di ininterrotta attività, Silvio d’Amico ha influenzato la scena italiana del Novecento come pochi altri uomini di teatro hanno saputo fare. A partire dai suoi esordi come critico ‘militante’ sulle pagine dell’«Idea Nazionale », ha perseguito con rara coerenza e costanza la sua battaglia per una scena rinnovata e contro il modello ottocentesco del Grande Attore e delle compagnie di giro. Per comprendere il suo percorso, culminato in una delle più resistenti egemonie culturali...

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

Firmin Gémier (1869-1933) est souvent le grand oublié des panoramas sur le théâtre du XXe siècle. Et pourtant la vie de cet acteur, metteur en scène et directeur est une véritable épopée. Ce livre raconte l'histoire de son combat pour le théâtre populaire, l'équipée du Théâtre national ambulant, la fondation du TNP dont il est le premier directeur, l'invention esthétique du « théâtre de la foule ». Mais ce livre ne veut pas être le panégyrique d'un individu. Gémier, homme de théâtre, est d'ab...

Abstract

Commercial theatre is thriving across Europe and the UK, while public theatre has suffered under changing patterns of cultural consumption—as well as sharp reductions in government subsidies for the arts. At a time when the rationale behind these subsidies is being widely reexamined, it has never been more important for public theatre to demonstrate its continued merit. In Resetting the Stage, Dragan Klaic argues convincingly that, in an increasingly crowded market of cultural goods, public theatre is best served not by imitating its much larger commercial counterpart, but by asserting its artistic distinctiveness and the considerable benefit this confers on the public.

Abstract

Le opere drammatiche ci hanno emozionato per secoli con una miriade di storie e personaggi. Il loro modo speciale di tessere i racconti, anche al di là della verosimiglianza, usando ogni intreccio possibile di parole e azioni, ragioni e sentimenti, per indurci a pensare che sempre fossero anche un po’ i nostri, è ancora attuale e si spande ben al di fuori dei confini del teatro. Perlustrando questi confini, il volume propone una ricognizione sul tema della drammaturgia alla luce dell’evoluzio...

Abstract

Les pièces de Sa'dallah Wannous dites de la deuxième période (1967-1978 ) sont au centre du présent ouvrage. Durant cette deuxième période, Wannous avait pour objectif de libérer son spectateur de ses appréhensions vis-à-vis du théâtre. Par le biais de ce qu'il appelle le théâtre de la politisation, Wannous voulait impliquer le spectateur dans le processus théâtral et susciter ainsi en lui des conclusions et des décisions justes. Cette étude s'attache à décrire les indices linguistiques qui ...

Abstract

Nandita Dinesh places Kipling’s "six honest serving-men" (who, what, when, where, why, how) in productive conversation with her own experiences in conflict zones across the world to offer a theoretical and practical reflection on making theatre in times of war. This timely and important book weaves together Dinesh’s personal narrative with the public story of modern conflict, illustrating as it does, the importance of theatre as a force for ethical deliberation and social justice. In it Dinesh asks how theatre might intervene in times and places of conflict and how we might reflect on such interventions. In pursuit of answers, Theatre and War adopts the methods of auto-ethnography, positioning the theatrical practitioner at the heart of conflict zones in northern Uganda, Guatemala, Northern Ireland, Mexico, Rwanda, Kenya, Nagaland, and Kashmir. No longer a detached observer, the researcher and practitioner has to be able to meld theory with practice; to speak to ‘doing’, without undervaluing the importance of ‘thinking about doing’.Each chapter approaches the need for a synthesis of theory and practice by way of a term of inquiry―Why, Where, Who, What, When―and each is equipped with a set of unflinchingly honest field notes that are designed to reveal some of the ‘hows’ from the author’s own repertoire: questions and issues that were encountered during her own theatrical undertakings, along with first hand reflection on the complexities, potential, and challenges that attended her global work in community theatre. Within these notes are strategies that give the reader a practical insight into how the discussion might find its footing on the ground of war.The range and scope of this book make it required reading for those interested in theatre―practitioners, researchers, and students alike—as well as those seeking to understand the applications of the arts for ethics, politics, and education.

Abstract

Stage women, 1900–50 explores the many ways in which women conceptualised, constructed and participated in networks of professional practice in the theatre and performance industries between 1900 and 1950. A timely volume full of original research, the book explores women’s complex negotiations of their agency over both their labour and public representation, and their use of personal and professional networks to sustain their careers. Including a series of case studies that explore a range of well-known and lesser-known women working in theatre, film and popular performance of the period. The volume is divided into two connected parts. ‘Female theatre workers in the social and theatrical realm’ looks at the relationship between women’s work – on- and offstage – and autobiography, activism, technique, touring, education and the law. Part II, ‘Women and popular performance’, focuses on the careers of individual artists, once household names, including Lily Brayton, Ellen Terry, radio star Mabel Constanduros, and Oscar-winning film star Margaret Rutherford. Overall, the book provides new and vibrant cultural histories of women’s work in the theatre and performance industries of the period.&#xD;
