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.

Artistieke media zijn onophoudelijk onderhevig aan mutatie en transformatie. Heel wat hedendaagse kunstenaars onderzoeken de mogelijkheden en limieten van hun medium en experimenteren met kruisbestuivingen, upgrades en mutilatie van verschillende media. Anderen verkennen expliciet de ongekende ruimtes tussen bestaande media en gaan op zoek naar de hybride bestaansvormen die deze intermediale tussenruimtes bevolken. Deze aflevering van Theater Topics thematiseert het muteren en adapteren van media in de relatie met de podiumkunsten. Hoe zijn verschillende aspecten van theater geëvolueerd in het digitale tijdperk? Hoe pasten historische tradities zich aan aan nieuwe culturele contexten? Wat zijn deze mutanten precies, en wat is hun toegevoegde waarde? Op welke manieren gebeurt de remediatie van andere media in hedendaagse performances? Leidt de resulterende onzuiverheid uiteindelijk tot een desintegratie van wat we verstaan onder ‘theater’, of net tot een herwaardering?

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

Entre 1870 et 1914, alors que de grandes nations européennes sont en construction et que les révolutions secouent le continent, le théâtre fin-de-siècle affirme la continuité du drame historique romantique en contestant pourtant ses valeurs : l'héroïsme et la noblesse d'âme sont désormais suspects et invalidés, la scène européenne préfère les petits faits aux grands évènements et les faiblesses des grands hommes à leurs moments de gloire. On voit alors sur scène, chez Strindberg, Sardou, Rost...

Abstract

Leçon inaugurale prononcée le 11 mars 2010 Chaire de Création artistique (2009-2010) Nous avons assisté depuis une quarantaine d’années à de singulières métamorphoses théâtrales : elles ont bousculé et renversé hardiment les traditions de l’art dramatique. Comment s’étonner qu’au milieu de tant de modèles divergents, le public parfois s’égare ? Que voit-il ? Est-ce encore du théâtre ? Il arrive qu’un spectacle fasse événement en divisant le public et la critique. Un camp attaque le réalisate...

Abstract

Qu’est-ce que l’histoire du théâtre médiéval ? Plus que l’histoire du théâtre au Moyen Âge, c’est celle de la définition de l’objet « théâtre médiéval » par des savants, archivistes, historiens ou littéraires, dont le présent volume retrace le parcours et éclaire les choix. Comment ces pères fondateurs ont-ils conceptualisé, documenté et compris le théâtre médiéval ? Quels paradigmes ont déterminé leurs discours et transformé cet objet scientifique en discipline ? Entre parcours académiques e...

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

Over the past 20 years European theatre underwent fundamental changes in terms of aesthetic focus, institutional structure and in its position in society. The impetus for these changes was provided by a new generation in the independent theatre scene. This book brings together studies on the state of independent theatre in different European countries, focusing on the fields of dance and performance, children and youth theatre, theatre and migration and post-migrant theatre. Additionally, it includes essays on experimental musical theatre, and different cultural policies for independent theatre scenes in a range of European countries.
