  • Theatre and War 1933-1945: Performance in Extremis

    Karton Kapak
    One evening in 1934, on the River Arno in Florence, an air squadron, an infantry, a cavalry brigade, fifty trucks, four field and machine gun batteries, ten field radio stations, and six photoelectric units presented a piece of theatre. One of eleven extraordinary essays in Theatre and War describes this mass spectacle in which two thousand amateur actors performed before an audience of twenty thousand. The authors of this volume assess the function of theatre in times of world crisis, exploring themes of Fascist aesthetic propaganda in Italy and Germany, of theatre re-education programmes in the Gulag's of Russia, of cultural 'sustenance' for the troops at the front and interned German refugees in the UK, and cabaret shows as a currency for survival in Jewish concentration camps.

  • Dissident Syria: Making Oppositional Arts Official

    Karton Kapak
    From 1970 until his death in 2000, Hafiz Asad ruled Syria with an iron fist. His regime controlled every aspect of daily life. Seeking to preempt popular unrest, Asad sometimes facilitated the expression of anti-government sentiment by appropriating the work of artists and writers, turning works of protest into official agitprop. Syrian dissidents were forced to negotiate between the desire to genuinely criticize the authoritarian regime, the risk to their own safety and security that such criticism would invite, and the fear that their work would be co-opted as government propaganda, as what miriam cooke calls “commissioned criticism.” In this intimate account of dissidence in Asad’s Syria, cooke describes how intellectuals attempted to navigate between charges of complicity with the state and treason against it.A renowned scholar of Arab cultures, cooke spent six months in Syria during the mid-1990s familiarizing herself with the country’s literary scene, particularly its women writers. While she was in Damascus, dissidents told her that to really understand life under Hafiz Asad, she had to speak with playwrights, filmmakers, and, above all, the authors of “prison literature.” She shares what she learned in Dissident Syria. She describes touring a sculptor’s studio, looking at the artist’s subversive work as well as at pieces commissioned by the government. She relates a playwright’s view that theater is unique in its ability to stage protest through innuendo and gesture. Turning to film, she shares filmmakers’ experiences of making movies that are praised abroad but rarely if ever screened at home. Filled with the voices of writers and artists, Dissident Syria reveals a community of conscience within Syria to those beyond its borders.

Overall, the book demonstrates how Mozart's entire operatic oeuvre is the product of a single extraordinary mind and a single pan-European operatic culture.

  • Zero 1 2 3 4 5

    Karton Kapak
    Auf den ersten Blick verlangt die Arbeit Gerold Tagwerkers eine Besprechung vor den Formulierungen der Minimal Art, auf die auch der Künstler selbst sich immer wieder bezieht; auf den zweiten Blick entäußert seine Arbeit nicht nur Bestätigung, sondern auch spielerische Verfremdung und Umdeutung derselben (wie es 40 Jahre “danach” gar nicht anders sein könnte), ohne jedoch eine kritische Analyse oder gar Dekonstruktion zu bemühen. Im gegenwärtigen Diskurs der künstlerischen Praxis als Identitätskonstruktion und Erkenntnisproduktion finden die minimalistischen Überzeugungen nur schwer einen Platz; ihre Verweigerung von Narration, Referenz und Aura scheint im gegenwärtigen Wahrnehmungskontext nicht mehr konsequent zu funktionieren, und auch ihr Bruch mit den europäischen Traditionen mutet derzeit fast nostalgisch an.

  • The Cambridge Introduction to Modern British Theatre (Cambridge Introductions to Literature)

    The Cambridge Introduction to Modern British Theatre (Cambridge Introductions to Literature)

    Karton Kapak
    British theatre has long been regarded as a world-leader in terms of its quality, creativity and range. Starting in 1900, this book introduces the features that characterise modern and current British theatre. These features include experimental performances under motorways alongside plays by Stoppard and Ayckbourn, amateur theatre and virtual spaces, the emergence of the director, the changing role of writers and political and community shows. The book is clearly divided into four sections: where it happens, who does it, what they make and why they do it. It discusses theatre buildings and theatre which refuses buildings; company organisation, ensembles and collectives, and different sorts of acting. A large section describes the major work done for the stage, from Shaw through to Complicite, via poetic drama, different sorts of realism and documentary drama. The Introduction stands apart from other accounts of modern British theatre by bringing together buildings, people and plays.

  • The Social Significance Of Modern Drama

    The Social Significance Of Modern Drama

    Karton Kapak
    (Applause Books). Out of print virtually since its completion in 1914, Emma Goldman's pioneer work Social Significance in Modern Drama bridges modern drama and political philosophy, pointing out the road that remains to be travelled toward a theatre of social empowerment. Activist, feminist, philosopher and anarchist, Emma Goldman was a passionate thinker about all things modern when the 20th century was still raw and new. The emergence of her treatise on the theatre after years of obscurity is certain to arouse a new generation of artists and scholars with its timely and provocative vision.

  • On the Town: One Hundred Years of Spectacle in Times Square

    On the Town: One Hundred Years of Spectacle in Times Square

    Karton Kapak
    Described as ‘a continuous carnival’ and ‘the crossroads of the world,’ Times Square is a singular phenomenon: the spot where imagination and veracity intersect. To Marshall Berman, it is also the flashing, teeming, and strangely beautiful nexus of his life. In this remarkable book, Berman takes us on a thrilling illustrated tour of Times Square, revealing a landscape both mythic and real. Interleafing his own recollections with social commentary, he reveals how movies, graphic arts, literature, popular music, television, and, of course, the Broadway theater have reflected Times Square’s voluminous light to illuminate a vast spectrum of themes and vignettes. Part love letter, part revelatory semiotic exposition of a place known to all, On the Town is a nonstop excursion to the heart of American civilization, written by one of our keenest, most entertaining cultural observers.

  • The American Play: 1787-2000

    The American Play: 1787-2000

    Karton Kapak
    In this brilliant study, Marc Robinson explores more than two hundred years of plays, styles, and stagings of American theatre. Mapping the changing cultural landscape from the late eighteenth century to the start of the twenty-first, he explores how theatre has, and has not, changed and offers close readings of plays by O'Neill, Stein, Wilder, Miller, and Albee, as well as by important but perhaps lesser known dramatists such as Wallace Stevens, Jean Toomer, Djuna Barnes, and many others. Robinson reads each work in an ambitiously interdisciplinary context, linking advances in theatre to developments in American literature, dance, and visual art. The author is particularly attentive to continuities in American drama, and expertly teases out recurring themes, such as the significance of visuality. He avoids neatly categorizing nineteenth- and twentieth-century plays and depicts a theatre more restive and mercurial than has been recognized before. Robinson proves both a fascinating and thought-provoking critic and a spirited guide to the history of American drama. This title received Honorable Mention for the 2010 George Freedley Memorial Award, given by Theatre Library Association.
