Sergi Belbel's Theatre Of Pain, Sharon G. Feldman Dec 2004

Sergi Belbel's Theatre Of Pain, Sharon G. Feldman

Latin American, Latino and Iberian Studies Faculty Publications

Dins la seva memoria ("Within his Memory"), a Catalan play written by Sergi Bel-bel in 1986, begins in total darkness, an imprecise empty void in which the spectator hears only the deep, rhythmic gasps and sighs of the anonymous protagonist. ' As the stage lights slowly rise during this "preliminary" scene, Ell (or, "He," as the protagonist is generically called) is depicted on his knees, masturbating with his back to the audience. At first glance, his violent, self-inflicted pleasure may be interpreted as an ultimate affirmation of life; yet, his autoerotic gestures are also imbued with memories that carry with them ...

Sweet Charity, November 9 – 20, 2004, Theatre Sheridan

Theatre Sheridan Productions

The musical is translated to an American context by Neil Simon from a Frederico Fellini film, Nights of Cabiria, about an aging Roman prostitute. Sweet Charity opened in 1966 at Broadway's Palace Theatre with four-time Tony winner Gwen Verdon as Charity. Directed and choreographed by Fosse, the production was nominated for 12 Tony Awards and ran for 608 performances. A film version followed in 1969 starring Shirley MacLaine. Sweet Charity was revived in 1986 with Debbie Allen in the lead and took 4 more Tonys, but, sadly, Fosse died shortly afterwards.

Blithe Spirit, October 28-30, 2004, Theatre Arts Discipline

Theatre Programs

University of Minnesota, Morris production of Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward and directed by Siobhan Bremer.

Synopsis: Cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” one Madame Arcati. As the (worldly and un-) personalities clash, Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed, “passes over,” joins Elvira, and the two “blithe spirits” haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.


Development And Validation Of A Facebook Relational Maintenance Measure, Bree Mcewan, Jennifer Fletcher, Jennifer Eden, Erin M. Bryant Oct 2004

Development And Validation Of A Facebook Relational Maintenance Measure, Bree Mcewan, Jennifer Fletcher, Jennifer Eden, Erin M. Bryant

Human Communication and Theatre Faculty Research

This manuscript details the construction of a measure of Facebook relational maintenance behaviors. The first study generated an item pool by drawing from previous qualitative investigations and adapting an established relational maintenance scale. Participants were then invited to evaluate these items in order to establish face validity. During study two, participants were asked how often they used the behaviors represented in these items to maintain a specific friendship. Exploratory factor analysis was conducted to determine the underlying structure of these items; three latent factors emerged, social contact, response-seeking, and relational assurances. This factor structure was then assessed using confirmatory factor ...

2004 Summer Theatre

Struggling sculptor Brindsley Miller and his fiance, Carol, are having a party with the aim of impressing Carol's bombastic father, Colonel Melkett, and millionaire Georg Bamberger. They hope the two men might purchase some of Brindsley's sculptures. Without permission, they have borrowed the furniture and effects of their fussy neighbor, Harold, to make their own flat more presentable. Just before the guests arrive, the main fuse blows, plunging the flat into darkness. What follows is a frantic romp with unexpected visitors, mistaken identities, and surprises lurking in every dark corner! Only we, the audience, can see the action ...


Dramaturging Education And Educating Dramaturgs: Developing And Establishing An Undergraduate Dramaturgy Emphasis For Brigham Young University, Shelley Graham Jul 2004

Dramaturging Education And Educating Dramaturgs: Developing And Establishing An Undergraduate Dramaturgy Emphasis For Brigham Young University, Shelley Graham

Theses and Dissertations

Though the field of dramaturgy is growing in size and scope in professional theatre, there are relatively few universities or colleges that offer undergraduate or graduate degrees in basic dramaturgical theory and practice. Brigham Young University (BYU) is an ideal setting for the development of such a program. There is a close community within and surrounding the university; the Theatre and Media Arts Department has high pedagogical expectations; and the Theatre program provides multiple opportunities for theatrical production. I saw these qualities as an invitation to develop a dramaturgy emphasis for undergraduate students that would allow them to network with ...

Forever Plaid, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

2004 Summer Theatre

High school pals Sparky, Jinx, Smudge, and Francis -- the “Plaids” -- are talented “guy group” -- just four nice young men who love singing harmony. They practice in the basement of Smudge’s family’s plumbing supply company, play proms and department stores, and dream about success. When the Plaids are killed in a car accident on the way to their first big gig -- at the Airport Hilton Cocktail Bar, on February 9, 1964 -- the young men linger in limbo, as unresolved as their final chord, until the conjunction of various “astro-technical” phenomena allows them to return to Earth, perform their final ...

Comic Ritual In A Tragic World: Lessons In The Metaphor Of Drama, Daniel Larner Jul 2004

Comic Ritual In A Tragic World: Lessons In The Metaphor Of Drama, Daniel Larner

Fairhaven Faculty Publications

Metaphor and drama share an essence: transformation. A metaphor carries one world of meaning to another, enlarging what it comes to by what it brings along with it. What is at stake is a meaning, which is transformed to something quite beyond its original state.

Drama takes an action done by characters, and transforms it from the mundane to the meaningful, carrying meaning from the realm of its factuality to wider worlds. Seen this way, drama transforms all action to the act of understanding, of putting some sort of prop under mere fact, of supplying--by some combination of rational, imagistic ...


Trucking Systems From Greece To America: Metaphorai, The Bacchai, And The Problem Of Vision In The Contemporary Theatre, Daniel Larner Jul 2004

Trucking Systems From Greece To America: Metaphorai, The Bacchai, And The Problem Of Vision In The Contemporary Theatre, Daniel Larner

Fairhaven Faculty Publications

Imagine my surprise as I walked around Athens in April of 1995, eagerly reading every word on every sign I saw, trying to digest my surroundings and intensify my encounter with the Greek language--imagine my surprise to see the same startling word painted on the side of one truck after another, the word metaforai.

It was a foreign land, a new culture for me. Maybe it would not be totally outrageous to find one truck full of metaphors, but two...three...a dozen? This is quite a business in Greece! Maybe when you have a culture that is three or ...
