University of Minnesota, Morris production of Art by Yasmina Reza and directed by Ray Schultz.

Synopsis: A translation of a French-language play, Art is about one man, Serge, who buys an expensive painting, a white canvas with a few white lines, and the reactions of his friends, Marc and Yvan, to his purchase. Marc responds with shock and anger; for him, Serge's purchase of the painting is a cruel joke. Yvan tries to mediate the hostility between Serge and Marc, at the cost of redirecting them to himself. As the conversations moves from the theoretical to the personal, the ...


The Bald Soprano, 2010 Taylor University

The Bald Soprano

Taylor Theatre Playbills

The playbill for Taylor University’s Fall 2010 performance of The Bald Soprano by Eugène Ionesco.

The Bald Soprano: An Anti-Play follows the events of a traditional couple who invite over another couple, and are later joined by their maid and the maid’s lover. The characters engage in meaningless banter that becomes even more nonsensical as time goes on.

In this adaptation the actors play the actresses’ roles and the actresses play the actor’s roles.

Stories For Today: A Contemporary Artist Brings New Life To A Moribund Indonesian Theatre Genre, Margaret CHAN 2010 Singapore Management University

Stories For Today: A Contemporary Artist Brings New Life To A Moribund Indonesian Theatre Genre, Margaret Chan

Research Collection School of Social Sciences

Dani Iswardana is single-minded about his mission to inject new life into wayang beber, perhaps the oldest form of Indonesian narrative theatre, but now described as a dying art. The intensity of his purpose buoys Dani through long stretches of painting when food is forgotten and his work, fuelled by coffee and cigarettes, is all that he cares for. However Dani has gone for years without producing anything, because he will work only when the creative spirit possesses him. Painting for money means nothing to him, and the everyday demands of making a living have no place in his creative ...

Esoto: Where Girls And Warriors Meet The Changing Space And Perceptions Of Esoto Over Generations Of The Maasai Women Of Engare Sero, Lisa Wilmore

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

The purpose of this study is to document the changing space of the esoto dance of the Maasai through descriptive analysis. I will consider how performance, relationships, and life after esoto have changed generationally. I will also analyze why these changes are occurring with a discussion on women’s opinions of the esoto. I chose the study site of Engare Sero as it has recently commenced a new age of development with a primary school, tourism, and the mixing of other Tanzanians. I interviewed exactly 105 women in the village within a 5km radius from the village center. I spoke ...

The Importance Of Being Earnest, Diane C. Merchant, Robert Clements, Rebecca M. Baker, Tim Phipps 2010 Director

The Importance Of Being Earnest, Diane C. Merchant, Robert Clements, Rebecca M. Baker, Tim Phipps

Theatre Productions

Gwendolyn and Cecily are in love with romantic, handsome, beguiling young men named "Ernest" ... or at least they think they are! And Jack and Algernon, bachelors who may have finally fallen victim to romance, seem to be caught between the wiles of the female sex and the allure of freedom. The Importance of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a romantic delight that entertains audiences, satirizes the hypocrisy of social obligations, and comments on society's foibles — all in the midst of mistaken identities and some mysterious business with a handbag in a train station. Playwright Oscar ...

“Estrategias Del Conocimiento Y La Red De Comunicación Desde La Misión De Moxos.”, Carlos-Urani Montiel 2010 The University of Western Ontario

“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 ...


The Roads Are Bumpy Ones: A Study Of Body Image Through Abstract Performance, Alexis Goldstein 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

The Roads Are Bumpy Ones: A Study Of Body Image Through Abstract Performance, Alexis Goldstein

Theses and Dissertations

An overwhelming number of contemporary adolescents struggle with difficult issues. Many of these problems are socially related whereas others can be directly related to the degradation of the family unit. Among the most damaging of issues is distorted body image, which infect youth, often causing them to communicate aggressively, and even landing them in compromising situations. I have sought to challenge my students to redefine themselves through expressive movement and the creation of abstract rhythmic sounds. In teaching these techniques, I have given my former students the means to combat negative thoughts and actions, as well as an excellent tool ...


A Midsummer Night's Dream On The Radio: Technology In Voice And Speech, David Becker 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

A Midsummer Night's Dream On The Radio: Technology In Voice And Speech, David Becker

Theses and Dissertations

Recent advances in sound technology have had significant implications for the teaching of voice and speech that are only now becoming apparent. As more students become “plugged in” it becomes more difficult, both for the instructor and the student, to communicate, let alone find a voice. We are becoming increasingly addicted to communicating through our devices, rather than through the traditional and accepted modes of the past: using the human voice. In light of these rapid and various new developments, voice training, especially at the introductory level, needs to be examined anew. A number of traditional approaches and teaching methods ...

Don’t Dress For Dinner centers around Bernard and Jacqueline, a not-so-happily married couple, both of whom are having extramarital affairs. As Jacqueline prepares to go out of town to visit her mother, Bernard invites his mistress and Robert, his best friend (and also Jacqueline’s lover, unbeknownst to Bernard), over for the weekend. He’s even hired a Cordon Bleu chef to cater the evening. Jacqueline discovers Robert is coming to town and cancels her trip, causing Bernard to panic. When Robert arrives, Bernard asks him to pretend Suzanne is Robert’s mistress. Robert mistakes the chef (Suzette), for ...
