Confident or fretful, solemn or sassy, tough or tender, casual or formal: the self you project in writing—your persona—is the byproduct of numerous decisions you make about what to say and how to say it. Though any single word or phrase or sentence might make little difference within the scope of an entire essay or book, collectively... more...

In the twenty-first century arts and cultural policies are global as well as local. This can lead to merging and clashing of identities in a way not always easily resolvable by culture and policy. This book looks at the role of narrative as the key to understanding cultural politics and identity deployed in the present but with deep roots in the past. more...

Collective creation - the practice of collaboratively devising works of performance - rose to prominence not simply as a performance making method, but as an institutional model.

This study reconsiders Surrealist theatre specifically from the perspective of ludics-a poetics of play and games-an ideal approach to the Surrealists, whose games blur the boundaries between the 'playful' and the 'serious.' Beginning with the Surrealists' 'one-into-another' game and its illustration of Breton's ludic... more...

?We have good reason to be wary of mise en scène, but that is all the more reason to question this wariness ... it seems that images from a performance come back to haunt us, as if to prolong and transform our experience as spectators, as if to force us to rethink the event, to return to our pleasure or our terror.? ? Patrice Pavis, from the... more...

Many commentators have routinely referred to theatre and, to an extent, all forms of live performance as particularly appropriate to the discussion of national identity. Put simply, the act of live performance itself draws attention to the idea that identities are performed and that different versions of identity can compete for our attention or allegiance.... more...

Grange covers productions, theories, innovations, and plays from ancient Greece to the Spanish Golden Age. It does not read like a scholarly tome as its chapters allow the uninitiated reader access to well-researched and often humorous material. Descriptions of films augment discussions of theatre, helping readers better analyze theatre performance.... more...

This cutting-edge title explores how narrating the past both conflicts and creates an interesting relationship with drama's 'continuing present' that arcs towards an unpredictable future. Theatre both brings the past alive and also fixes it, but through the performance process, allowing the past to be molded for future (not-yet-existent) audiences. more...

Hauptbeschreibung "Bibliographien und Repertorien sind nicht nur Titellisten.
