Abstract

This book is on four plays by John von Düffel, Peter Handke, and Franz Xaver Kroetz. The texts show a new understanding of direction and leadership, which is no longer related to hierarchical structured principles of organisation and to determining conceptions of planning and controlling. &#xD;

Abstract

Exciting new scholarship has been emerging as performance studies scholars begin to turn their attention to the performance of politics, nationhood, and jurisprudence. Branislav Jakovljevic’s project on the history and eventual demise of the former Yugoslavia demonstrates how fruitful this approach can be. Jakovljevic considers the concept of theatricality as central to understanding the events that took place in Yugoslavia. He examines the country’s trials, state ceremonies and festivals, army maneuvers, propaganda, and pop culture as “rehearsals and temporary enactments of an ideologically formulated future.” His first chapter reveals the surrealist, avant-garde origins of key members of the Yugoslav bureaucracy after WWII, suggesting that those connections helped the culture of socialist Yugoslavia become a performance-centered culture. Continuing to explore the relationship between the political avant-garde and the artistic avant-garde, he looks at the spectacle of student demonstrations in Belgrade in 1968, and, in their aftermath, the rise of performance art in the country. The third chapter (included here) zeros in on the various political performances of Slobodan Milosevic, including his courtroom testimony at the ICTY, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. The fourth chapter discusses the “Peter Handke Affair,” when the Austrian playwright had a major prize revoked after he attended Milosevic’s funeral and recited a poem he had written in Milosevic’s honor.

Abstract

Con questo volume dedicato al teatro ebraico dalle origini al 1948 si viene a colmare una grave lacuna della pubblicistica non solo italiana. Secondo un luogo comune assai diffuso, l’antropologia e la cultura ebraiche sarebbero caratterizzate da un interdetto assoluto nei confronti del teatro. Qui si dimostra ampiamente che un’attenzione nei confronti del teatro – o per meglio dire dell’espressione performativa – tanto intensa quanto peculiare abbia caratterizzato tutta la storia dell’ebraismo. Dall’episodio biblico di Ester alle rappresentazioni carnevalesche del Purim e poi, a partire dalla metà dell’Ottocento, al teatro yiddish, la cultura ebraica è stata costantemente in dialogo con le varie forme della teatralità, sia adattando ai propri scopi modelli delle culture nazionali sia elaborandone di propri. L’excursus di questo volume si ferma all’altezza del 1948, spartiacque di una storia diversa, quella del nuovo Stato d’Israele, uno dei più importanti “esperimenti di modernità” del XX e XXI secolo. Verso la fine di questa prima parte il teatro ebraico incrocia il proprio destino con quello del teatro yiddish. Qui si dà il caso singolare di una civiltà che si è espressa, al momento dell’ingresso nella modernità, in due sistemi teatrali molto differenti, a partire dalla lingua, e spesso in contrasto tra loro. Ed è proprio in questo momento che – nell’intreccio tra impresa sionista, recupero dell’antica lingua e costruzione identitaria dell’Ebreo Nuovo – prende vita il teatro nazionale di Israele.

Abstract

This open access book discusses how citizenship is performed today, mostly through the optic of the arts, in particular the performing arts, but also from the perspective of a wide range of academic disciplines such as urbanism and media studies, cultural education and postcolonial theory. It is a compendium that includes insights from artistic and activist experimentation. Each chapter investigates a different aspect of citizenship, such as identity and belonging, rights and responsibilities, bodies and materials, agencies and spaces, and limitations and interventions. It rewrites and rethinks the many-layered concept of citizenship by emphasising the performative tensions produced by various uses, occupations, interpretations and framings.

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

2014 and 2016, marked by the 450th anniversary of his birthday and the 400th anniversary of his demise respectively, have both been dedicated to the remembrance of William Shakespeare and the celebration of his work through readings, theater productions, movies, exhibitions, and many academic events. He is fondly called the “Bard” by many and has long been England's export hit. Shakespeare gained lasting fame and fortune during his lifetime not only by successfully moving his audience, but also because from the beginning his work inspired critical and artistic dialogue. The ingenuity and uniqueness of his work did not fail to inspire the creative imagination of successive generations of authors, artists, and musicians over the past four and a half centuries. In fact, each generation has reimagined and recreated Shakespeare in its own different way, bringing its own interpretation, themes, fashion, taste, and customs to the rereading, visualization, and intonation of his work. The brand “Shakespeare” is still as popular and productive as ever. A fact that is apparent not only in the huge numbers of visitors yearly to Stratford upon Avon and Verona, the city of Shakespeare's tragic-romance Romeo and Juliet, but also in the long line of movies produced based on his plays each year. One might even go as far as to assert that it is the generations of productive readers and their own unique creative interpretations that have kept the Bard alive over the past 450 years. This collection of essays celebrates Shakespeare’s two big anniversaries and takes the opportunity to look at him from a different perspective, as a source of inspiration and, for a change, to explore the eclectic results of centuries of productive reception of his work from the Elizabethan era up to the 21rst century.

Abstract

Conversation during theater intermissions is informed by an idealized notion of an audience which communicates with rhetorical aplomb about aesthetic and sociopolitical issues. By contrast, critics suggest that such conversations serve primarily to emphasize social distinction and are banal in content. The study examines intermission talk, which stands at the intersection between art communication, recreation, conviviality, and informal learning.

Abstract

Si, du point de vue du public, le théâtre est une rencontre avec une œuvre, un metteur en scène et des comédiens, cette expérience s’accompagne de formes de sociabilité liées à la sortie. Comment choisit-on les pièces, sur la base de quels conseils et avec qui va-t-on au théâtre ? Si près d’un Français sur cinq va au théâtre au moins une fois par an, seuls 4% effectuent cette sortie seuls. Deux formes d’accompagnement prévalent : la sortie en couple et celle avec des amis avec lesquels se pratiquent des sorties au théâtre régulières. La première est beaucoup plus répandue chez les hommes, et la seconde recrute une forte majorité de femmes. L’enquête s’appuie sur une exploitation secondaire de la dernière édition de Pratiques culturelles des Français (2008) et d’une série d’entretiens menés auprès de spectateurs de différents théâtres à Paris et en province ; elle analyse les différentes formes de sociabilités associées à la sortie au théâtre. Elle confirme, dans le cas de la fréquentation du théâtre, la féminisation de la culture et met en évidence le rôle que jouent les femmes dans l’organisation des sorties.

Abstract

Ingmar Bergman is worldwide known as a film and stage director. Yet no-one has attempted to compare his stage and screen activities. In Between stage and screen Egil Törnqvist examines formal and thematical correspondences and differences between a number of Bergman's stage, screen, and radio productions. In the prologue Bergman's spiritual and aesthetic heritage and his position in the twentieth century media landscape is outlined. In the epilogue the question is answered to what extent one can speak of Bergman's directorial 'method' irrespective of the chosen medium.
