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

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

Depuis le xviie siècle, les traducteurs, les adaptateurs et les praticiens du théatre n'ont jamais cessé de faire vivre en France les pièces de Lope de Vega, Tirso de Molina ou Calderon de la Barca, malgré la célèbre phrase de Louis Jouvet qui affirmait que « le théâtre du Siècle d'Or est un théâtre mort ». Traditionnellement envisagé sous l'angle de la critique des sources, le riche et complexe phénomène de la réception de la Comedia espagnole en France, depuis l'âge classique jusqu'à la pé...

Abstract

Russian women of the nineteenth century are often thought of in their literary incarnations as the heroines of novels such as Anna Karenina and War and Peace. But their real counterparts are now becoming better understood as active contributors to Russia’s varied cultural landscape.This collection of essays examines the lives of women across Russia – from wealthy noblewomen in St Petersburg to desperately poor peasants in Siberia – discussing their interaction with the church and the law, and their rich contribution to music, art, literature and theatre. It shows how women struggled for greater autonomy and, both individually and collectively, developed a dynamic but often overlooked presence in Russia's culture and society during the long nineteenth century (1800-1917).Women in Nineteenth-Century Russia provides invaluable reading for anyone interested in Russian history, nineteenth-century culture and gender studies.
