Pamela On Directing Three The Hard Way: An Exploration Of Theatrical And Communicative Processes., Pamela S. Adolphi Dec 2007

Pamela On Directing Three The Hard Way: An Exploration Of Theatrical And Communicative Processes., Pamela S. Adolphi

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The direction of the play Three the Hard Way by Linda Eisenstein achieved the playwright's intent and the super objective of the play. The application of theatrical and communicative processes facilitated the direction of the desired metacommunicatations associated with the family's dynamics by expressing the struggles and perceptions associated with the family and their relationships. The implementation of the director's prompt book illustrates the use of proxemics in creating picturizations for the stage. In addition, the exploration of the directing process and the progression of the production are examined in daily journal entries. The successes of the ...


The Young Lady's Consent, Christopher O. Kidder Dec 2007

The Young Lady's Consent, Christopher O. Kidder

University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations

This play is a translation and adaptation of a Spanish play originally written in 1806 by Leandro Fernández de Moratín, El sí de las niñas. Because that play was not available to English-speaking actors, I translated the work directly from the original Spanish. The resulting manuscript was not the finished product of this play, however. Through a series of workshops with actors trained in a physical method of theatre I devised in order to modernize classic works to a more modern audience's tastes, the script morphed and grew into the play that follows.

Five Women Wearing The Same Dress, November 29 – December 8, 2007, Theatre Sheridan Nov 2007

Five Women Wearing The Same Dress, November 29 – December 8, 2007, Theatre Sheridan

Theatre Sheridan Productions

The setting is a large estate in Knoxville, Tennessee. A group of five widely different bridesmaids hide out in the bride’s bedroom, taking refuge from the ostentatious wedding reception below – each for her own very personal reasons. Over the course of the afternoon. These women discover that they share much more than the identical (and hideous) outfits they wear. Academy Award-winning playwright Alan Ball (American Beauty, Six Feet Under) wrote this irreverent, wickedly funny, and ultimately touching comedy celebrating the indomitable female spirit.

Director: Sue Miner

Defining The Spiritual Aspects In The Pure Dance Of Bharata Natyam, Bevin Stark Nov 2007

Defining The Spiritual Aspects In The Pure Dance Of Bharata Natyam, Bevin Stark

Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) Student Scholarship

Bharata natyam is herald as a sacred art. The goal of all traditional Indian arts is to evoke rasa (a tasting of spiritual bliss) in the artist as well as the spectator. I have personally experienced a spiritual power while performing and practicing this ancient dance form. Bharata natya has two main aspects to its dance presentation: natya (story-telling), and nrtta (pure dance technique). The natya portion clearly nurtures devotional feelings and religious contemplation by retelling stories of the gods, of the great Hindu epics and of myths. This study focuses on the subtle role that the nrtta portion of ...

Opera And Spanish Jesuit Evangelization In The New World, Chad M. Gasta Nov 2007

Opera And Spanish Jesuit Evangelization In The New World, Chad M. Gasta

World Languages and Cultures Publications

As missionaries across the New World quickly discovered, Indians exhibited a strong attraction to music and song, but it was the Jesuits who were particularly adept at exploiting those musical interests to reinforce their argument that the Indians could adopt Christian faith, understand its principles, and live by its commands. One of the first operas in the New World is San Ignacio de Loyola (1720?), written by Domenico Zipoli, a famed Roman organ master, composer and Jesuit missionary. This essay brings to light the little known fact that Jesuit opera exists and also discusses how Zipoli's work was a ...
