Recasting Genre In Tennessee Williams's Apprentice Plays, Christina Ilona Hunter 2010 University of Southern Mississippi

Recasting Genre In Tennessee Williams's Apprentice Plays, Christina Ilona Hunter

Dissertations

This dissertation investigates Tennessee Williams’s earliest full-length plays, also known as the apprentice plays—Candles to the Sun, Fugitive Kind, Not About Nightingales, Spring Storm, and Stairs to the Roof—by comparing, contrasting and contextualizing them in relation to Daniel Chandler’s generic criteria of drama; namely, narrative, characterization, setting, topics, iconography, and staging techniques. The present study also draws upon an extensive body of scholarship pertaining to genre theory, Williams’s cultural contemporaries, and the historical and psychological backdrop of Depression-era America. In these early plays, Williams diverged sharply from the dramatic generic conventions of his day, manipulating ...

“Estrategias Del Conocimiento Y La Red De Comunicación Desde La Misión De Moxos.”, Carlos-Urani Montiel

Carlos-Urani Montiel

El tema de este trabajo es la red de comunicación que operó entre las provincias europeas y americanas de la Compañía de Jesús hasta el momento de su expulsión. Una red de comunicación se describe por medio de los patrones de conexión que son creados por el flujo de mensajes entre sus usuarios a través del tiempo y del medio ambiente. Un mensaje es cualquier forma simbólica que pueda moverse de un punto a otro de la red, o que pueda ser interpretada, y así recreada, por sus miembros. Mi trabajo explora esta forma de comportamiento y de organización global ...

Monstrous!: Actors, Audiences, Inmates, And The Politics Of Reading Shakespeare, Matt Kozusko 2010 Ursinus College

Monstrous!: Actors, Audiences, Inmates, And The Politics Of Reading Shakespeare, Matt Kozusko

English Faculty Publications

This essay considers the use of Shakespeare as marker of authenticity and as a therapeutic space for performers and audiences across a number of genres, from professional actors in training literature to prison inmates in radio and film documentaries. It argues that in the wake of recent academic trends—the critique of "Shakespeare" as an author figure; the privileging of the text as a source of multiple, potentially conflicting readings—Shakespeare's function as cultural capital has shifted sites, from "Shakespeare" to the playtexts themselves.

Ethnographic Performance And Global Learning: Lessons From "You Always Go Home", Margaret Baldwin, Karen Robinson 2010 Kennesaw State University

Ethnographic Performance And Global Learning: Lessons From "You Always Go Home", Margaret Baldwin, Karen Robinson

Journal of Global Initiatives: Policy, Pedagogy, Perspective

Ethnographic performance draws upon fieldwork in a particular social/cultural "lived domain" (Madison, 2005, p. 5) as the text (aural, visual, gestural) for the performance (or representation) of other identities. Through ethnography, we are required to enter into a "deep and abiding dialogue with the Other" (Madison, 2005, p.B). Ethnographic performance is particularly focused on giving representation to individuals and groups whose voices and stories often go unheard.

This essay will focus on the conception, development, and impact of an ethnographic performance entitled You Always Go Home that was produced by the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies at ...

Theatre For A New Theater: A Play On Architecture, Alex Coulombe 2010 Syracuse University

Theatre For A New Theater: A Play On Architecture, Alex Coulombe

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

The project entails transforming a former military fort into a theater. The scopic parameters native to both fort and theater can provide a field of operation for an architecture that simultaneously mobilizes and exposes the machinery of spectacle. In tandem, amplifying and distorting existing conditions of the fort and repurposing them for a theatrical program can provide catalytic parameters for design that are typically absent when designing from a clean slate.

Sobre Lo Visible Y Lo Invisible: Barcelona Y El Teatro, Sharon G. Feldman 2010 University of Richmond

Sobre Lo Visible Y Lo Invisible: Barcelona Y El Teatro, Sharon G. Feldman

Latin American, Latino and Iberian Studies Faculty Publications

Durante el invierno del año 2000, el director catalán Lluís Pasqual llevó a la escena del Teatre Lliure, la casa histórica de una de las compañías de repertorio más estable, consolidada y distinguida de Barcelona, una versión catalana de El jardín de los cerezos de Antón Chekov. En la obra de Chekov, Madame Ranyévskaya, emblema de la elegancia marchita y de la ya desvanecida supremacía de la aristocracia rusa, se ve obligada, por su situación de desesperanza económica, a vender su finca y su jardín de cerezos al nuevo-rico Lopatkhin y, después, a volver a París, cuando Rusia se encuentra ...

El Perfil Postdramático Del Teatro Catalán Contemporáneo, Sharon G. Feldman 2010 University of Richmond

El Perfil Postdramático Del Teatro Catalán Contemporáneo, Sharon G. Feldman

Latin American, Latino and Iberian Studies Faculty Publications

Han transcurrido diez años desde la publicación en 1999 del Postdramatisches Theater de Hans-Thies Lehmann, estudio influyente en el cual el teórico alemán señalaba una serie de actitudes y condiciones propias de las prácticas estéticas teatrales (occidentales) surgidas a partir de los años setenta que parecían sugerir un cambio de paradigma en cuanto a nuestra comprensión y nuestra experiencia del drama contemporáneo [Barnett, 2006: 484-487]. La noción de lo postdramático no necesariamente excluye la presencia de lo que entendemos por drama (o por lo dramático), sino que lo postdramático y lo dramático se encuentran, como ha señalado Lehmann, entrelazados en ...

Undergraduate Review

This is one chapter of a full Honors’ Thesis entitled “The Visions of Women Created by Three Major Female African American Playwrights of the Twentieth Century: Georgia Douglas Johnson, Lorraine Hansberry, and Suzan-Lori Parks”. This chapter addresses the vision of Lena Younger created by Lorraine Hansberry in A Raisin in the Sun. It analyses the vision of African American women emerging through the character of Lena Younger, during the Civil Rights Movement by employing traditional dramaturgical methodology, including facets of Literary Structural Analysis, and Stanislavskian Analysis. This study in its whole will, thus, demonstrate how the self-perceived image of African ...
