Disneyfication And Education, Reagan A Yessler 2019 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Disneyfication And Education, Reagan A Yessler

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

Disneyfication in theater means the increase in popularity of Disney plays and the resulting reshaping of modern plays to more resemble those of Walt Disney, in order to gain viewership. In most cases, this means a shift to a musical format featuring upbeat ballads and gaudy but family-friendly costumes. While many theatre elitists frown upon such trends, this project shows how Disneyfication fosters renewed interest and enjoyment in theatre across age groups. A case study of the Knox and Sevier County school systems in Tennessee examines patterns of interest and enjoyment in the nation’s most popular plays via snowball ...

Surviving Imprisonment In America: Drama Therapy For Incarcerated Women, Kendall Crawford 2019 Belmont University

Surviving Imprisonment In America: Drama Therapy For Incarcerated Women, Kendall Crawford

Belmont Undergraduate Research Symposium (BURS)

With the United States positioned as the leading nation in incarceration rates, the intentional use of theatre in order to achieve psychological growth and change within inmates is an invaluable asset to the healing of the imprisoned, specifically to incarcerated women who have undergone sexual trauma. Navigating prison for women is often combined with the trauma of sexual assault, as almost half the women in the nation’s jails and prisons were sexually abused prior to their imprisonment. With an emphasis on punishment, prisons often have the effect of retraumatization and revictimization rather than rehabilitation for abused women. Through the ...

Accidentally Pioneering A Movement: How The Pioneer Players Sparked Political Reform, Sami Hansen

Belmont Undergraduate Research Symposium (BURS)

Theatre in the twenty-first century has been largely based on political and social reform, mirroring such movements as Black Lives Matter and Me Too. New topics and ideas are brought to life on various stages across the globe, as many artists challenge cultural and constitutional structures in their society. But how did protest theatre get started?As specifically the feminist movement, political theatre on the topic of women’s rights can be traced back to an acting society called the Pioneer Players, which was made up of British men and women suffragettes in the early twentieth century.The passion and ...


Breaking Down The Fourth Wall With Artaud, Punchdrunk, And The Wooster Group, Megan Huggins 2019 Belmont University

Breaking Down The Fourth Wall With Artaud, Punchdrunk, And The Wooster Group, Megan Huggins

Belmont Undergraduate Research Symposium (BURS)

Antonin Artaud, a radical theatre artist working during the first half of the 20thcentury, developed a style and philosophy of storytelling called the Theatre of Cruelty. Artaud wanted to shock his audiences into an emotional connection with the people and situations around them. Hoping to shake the audience out of their complacency by combating realism, Artaud envisioned performances that would eliminate the fourth wall and confront the audience directly. Two contemporary theatre companies, the Wooster Group and Punchdrunk,adapt Artaud’s ideas to modern storytelling practices. The Wooster Group incorporates technological advances in its jarring, innovative performances, and Punchdrunk creates ...

Adolphe Appia: Unifying Acting Through Sets And Lighting, Zachary Payne

Belmont Undergraduate Research Symposium (BURS)

Adolphe Appia was not only one of the most important turn-of-the-century innovators of theatrical lighting,he also envisioned fundamental changes in the use of the stage setting and attempted to redefine theatrical art itself.He was both theorist and practitioner,the latter in the areas of scenography and lighting design. Although most of his writings address the relationship between light and music, he also envisioned a completely new approach to acting. For Appia, the stage space was dynamic and inclusive –he wished to encourage interaction between actor and spectator.His designs show his desire to unify theatrical production in a ...

Finding Holes, Founding Theaters: An Exploration On Theatre Companies In Nashville, Eve Petty

Belmont Undergraduate Research Symposium (BURS)

Nashville’s theatre community is growing at a rapid rate–new companies are popping up left and right. Nashville already has many well-established and professional theatre organizations, so why do new ones continue to emerge? Nashville is home to a unique theatre community that is still growing to fill artistic gaps. All kinds of theater companies —professional, semi-professional, and start-ups—fulfill a need. All three types will adapt to meet new challenges and fill artistic holes by any means necessary in order to make the community whole.


Subverting The Patriarchy And Its Ties To Feminism: Du Maurier And Her Adaptations, Samantha Koller 2019 Kutztown University

Subverting The Patriarchy And Its Ties To Feminism: Du Maurier And Her Adaptations, Samantha Koller

KUCC -- Kutztown University Composition Conference

This paper describes the common (mis)reading of Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca as upholding Victorian patriarchal values and attempts to demonstrate that the novel is indeed feminist and acts as a critique and subversion of those patriarchal standards; it then examines the film and stage adaptations of Rebecca, demonstrating via comparison to the original medium that feminism has begun to affect other cultural interpretations and depictions of the narrator, Mrs. Danvers, and Rebecca herself.


“Boadicea Onstage Before 1800, A Theatrical And Colonial History.” Studies In English Literature 1500-1900 49.3 (Summer 2009): 595-614., Wendy Nielsen 2019 Selected Works

“Boadicea Onstage Before 1800, A Theatrical And Colonial History.” Studies In English Literature 1500-1900 49.3 (Summer 2009): 595-614., Wendy Nielsen

Wendy Nielsen

This essay examines the theatrical legacy of Boadicea, the British warrior queen defeated by the Romans around 61 AD, in three plays: John Fletcher's "The Tragedy of Bonduca, or the British Heroine" and two unrelated dramas titled "Boadicea" by Charles Hopkins and Richard Glover. Performance histories attempt to explain why audiences respond to Boadicea with ambivalence. Each production underplays the defeated queen and gives starring roles to one or more of her daughters and a male lead, who contrast with Boadicea's supposed brutality and provide British audiences with lessons about ways to rule in an ostensibly civilized fashion.

Slippage: An Interrogation Of Memory And Myth Through Movement, Laura Malpass 2019 University of Colorado Boulder

Slippage: An Interrogation Of Memory And Myth Through Movement, Laura Malpass

Theatre and Dance Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Memory and myths help us locate ourselves. They are the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of the world, to create reality, and to foster resilience. The myths passed down through generations create a sense of family, of tribe, and of belonging. Memory is the mythology we tell ourselves time and again to mine inner truths - the home we create to locate ourselves in the wider world. What happens when these memories morph and fade, when shifting neural pathways reshape the inner landscapes of our physicality? As we forget, what do we remember? How does losing your history create ...


Informed Hearing Loss Prevention At Theatre Uni, Mallory Park Atkinson 2019 University of Northern Iowa

Informed Hearing Loss Prevention At Theatre Uni, Mallory Park Atkinson

Research in the Capitol

Theatre workers face many dangers which could impact their quality of life and ability to work. One such risk is hearing loss. Given the prevalence of noise-induced hearing loss, some theatre workers may already be living with hearing loss. My purpose with this study is to discover the current conditions and attitudes toward hearing loss at Theatre UNI then provide the information necessary to theatre workers about the signs and significance of hearing loss as well as methods for prevention.
