The Feminist Impact On Realism And Theater Today, Leah Nixon Nov 2019

The Feminist Impact On Realism And Theater Today, Leah Nixon

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Last summer I was instructed to write a brief biography of a figure in theatrical history and I chose Henrick Ibsen, the father of Realism. Through my research I found that the story of Ibsen can not be told without examining his relationship with strong women. What I find most intriguing was the realtionship he shared with an early feminist and writer, Camilla Collett; whom he later credited as an influence on his work.

What is so crucial about this connection is that Henrik Ibsen is the uncontested creator of the theatrical genre of Realism. This genre is one of ...

Melodic Language And Linguistic Melodies: Singing In Tone Languages, Aaron Carter-Enyi Nov 2017

Melodic Language And Linguistic Melodies: Singing In Tone Languages, Aaron Carter-Enyi

Africana Digital Ethnography Project

Approximately 60% of the world’s languages are tonal, wherein alterations of pitch change the meaning of words. Two-syllable words in Yorùbá can have as many as five separate meanings, and single- syllable words in Mandarin up to four. Among tone-language speakers, acute pitch sensitivity is developed at an early age as part of language acquisition. The result is that speakers of tone languages are generally more sensitive to pitch than stress-language speakers. For speakers of stress languages, it is difficult to conceive of this other aurality, in which sound is perceived in a different way. But music holds the ...

From Playwriting To Production, Lauren Wade May 2017

From Playwriting To Production, Lauren Wade

Senior Honors Projects

Theater has been a beloved art form for centuries, originating in Ancient Greek times and evolving into what we know today. For as long as I can remember I have been involved in theater, performing in my own school plays starting in elementary school and, upon entering high school, assisting the middle school next door in their productions. While I have been studying acting here at the University of Rhode Island, I have also had the opportunity to expand my knowledge in many aspects of stagecraft including stage management, costume and set design, set construction and scenic painting, and more ...

Thea5290 - Classical Drama And Theatre, Fall 2007, Mark Damen

Theatre Arts - OCW

The purpose of this class is to review and analyze the nature and function of ancient Greek and Roman drama in its theatrical, historical and social context. We will discuss all the major dramatists from classical antiquity whose works are preserved entire and, as time permits, glance at the fragmentary remains of their and other less well attested authors' drama. Through all of this, our goal will be to reconstruct as fully as possible the evolution of ancient play-making. We will focus especially on how the microcosm of theatre in antiquity fed and fed off of the larger political, philosophical ...
