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 ...


This Is Sportscenter: Performance And Performativity In Sports Broadcasting And Punditry, Anthony C. Gunn 2010 Brigham Young University - Provo

This Is Sportscenter: Performance And Performativity In Sports Broadcasting And Punditry, Anthony C. Gunn

All Theses and Dissertations

Within the discipline of Performance Studies there is a debate about what is included within the ontology of “performance.” Peggy Phelan suggests that performance can only be experienced in the here and now, and any recording of a performance makes it “something other than performance.” Phillip Auslander argues the exact opposite, claiming that mediatized performance is not only valid, but also preferable to the live. This thesis is about performance in sports broadcasting, and states that performance, like sport, can be valid in both live and mediatized forms. The thesis also details how sports broadcasters perform and how their performance ...

Identidad And Mejicanidad: Dance Transference Through Mexican Folklórico, Azteca, And Flamenco Dance, Erica Ocegueda 2010 University of New Mexico

Identidad And Mejicanidad: Dance Transference Through Mexican Folklórico, Azteca, And Flamenco Dance, Erica Ocegueda

Theatre & Dance ETDs

Identidad and Mejicanidad examines cultural identity and dance through the lens of 'owners,' 'borrowers,' and 'renters'. I examine how non-professional participants of these dance forms are beacons for cultural expression and serve to explore the fringe of the sense of cultural knowing through Mexican Folklórico, Azteca, and Flamenco dance. Through these dance forms I interrogate how cultural identity frames questions of authenticity and identity. Ownership of cultural identity and issues of authenticity are a source of ire for many underrepresented groups of people. Maintaining who is 'in control' of a cultural expressions' evolution is a common dispute. The legacy of ...

Pippin, February 18 – 27, 2010, Theatre Sheridan

Theatre Sheridan Productions

Pippin was created by Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked) and Roger O. Hirson as a college project, it was a cute and sentimental story about a travelling theatrical troupe putting on a play about a young man finding meaning in his life. It was fairly innocent and innocuous – until Bob Fosse got a hold of it. It was Fosse who invented the Leading Player and embedded a dark Vaudevillian mystique to the piece, making it a Broadway sensation in 1972. For Fosse the piece was autobiographical, the two main characters representing the two opposing sides of his own personality: Pippin, the ...

You Can't Take It With You, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

2009-2010 Season

Grandpa Vanderhof and his wacky family, the Sycamores, have been happily living their zany lives in his house by Columbia University in New York for many years. This family (and their friends) are a madcap group of eccentrics, marching to the beat of their own drum, with pride and joy. Their hobbies include collecting snakes, building fireworks in the basement, writing a myriad of plays that never get published, and taking ballet lessons. Things like stress, jobs, and paying taxes to the government are for other people, not for them! But when practical young Alice Sycamore becomes engaged to her ...

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 ...
