The Black Body As Souvenir In American Lynching, Harvey Young Nov 2005

The Black Body As Souvenir In American Lynching, Harvey Young

Harvey Young

This essay reads the collection of body parts, in the aftermath of the lynching spectacle, as souvenirs, fetish objects, and performance remains. Along the way, it spotlights the importance of narrative to the souvenir, challenges the notion that performance disappears through an emphasis on its remains, and asserts that embodied experiences of the past can be accessed in the present.

You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department Nov 2005

You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

2005-2006 Season

Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. In this revised version, with additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and dialogue by Michael ...


Company, November 8-9, 2005, Theatre Sheridan Nov 2005

Company, November 8-9, 2005, Theatre Sheridan

Theatre Sheridan Productions

Company is set in New York City, 1970. For musical theatre fans and historians, it is a very important work, since it marks the beginning of the "concept" musical, a form created by the team of Stephen Sondheim and Hal Prince (Follies, A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures, Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along). The concept musical explores a theme; it revolves around an issue rather than a traditional plot. The theme of Company is contemporary (1970) marriages, and the creators have used the island of Manhattan as a metaphor for modern relationships. Just as Manhattan is a fast-paced, high-tension ...

Every 10 years or so there is a software program that changes the way we use personal computers. The first wave took place over 20 years ago with the advent of word processors and spreadsheets. The next major change came with drafting programs like AutoCAD® and graphics/image processing software such as Adobe Photoshop® and its suite of related products.

¡Dame Un Ritmo (Y Sueldo)!: La Sustentabilidad Económica De Los Artistas Callejeros En El Gran Santiago, Zachariah Smith Cheema Oct 2005

¡Dame Un Ritmo (Y Sueldo)!: La Sustentabilidad Económica De Los Artistas Callejeros En El Gran Santiago, Zachariah Smith Cheema

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

Street artists in the greater Santiago area are the product of a high unemployment rate and a history of street music in the city. Street artists can be found in every part of Santiago, from the shopping centers to the tranquil parks. Santiago’s street artists vary in age, talent, and future plans. However, these street artists confront many similar risks, such as the threat of detention, other street vendors, or the spectators themselves. While street art as a long-term job is a possibility, there is not a lot of room to save money for the future. Street art lacks ...

Achieving Flow In Theatre Performance, Lynn Marie Boianelli Sep 2005

Achieving Flow In Theatre Performance, Lynn Marie Boianelli

Theses and Dissertations

This study examines the idea of "flow," the state of optimal experience, and determines how it relates to theatrical performance. Using the methodology presented in Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's FLOW: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, I examine the rehearsal and performance processes of theatre in terms of the steps needed to reach a state of optimal experience. I specifically look at the issues of repeatability (reaching the state of flow night after night), consciousness (awareness), self-consciousness and concentration. In addition, I discuss options performers have for receiving feedback as theorized in the works of Anne Bogart, Constantin Stanislavski, David Mamet and ...
