Tragedy and After: Euripides, Shakespeare, Goethe
Review
"Faas has written a provocative book, challenging the familiar literary and philosophical theories of tragedy from Aristotle onwards. His judicious use of nietzschean insights both stimulates and compels assent. Exuberant scholarship from first page to last." Irving Layton

Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance, 2nd Edition

FREEDownload : Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance, 2nd Edition

Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance, 2nd Edition by Eric Franklin
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0736067884 | 392 pages | PDF | 44 MB
Renowned master teacher Eric Franklin has thoroughly updated his classic text, Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance, providing dancers and dance educators with a deep understanding of how they can use imagery to improve their dancing and artistic expression in class and in performance.

Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance, 2nd Edition
These features are new to this edition:

*Two chapters include background, history, theory, and uses of imagery.

*294 exercises offer dancers and dance educators greater opportunities to experience how imagery can enhance technique and performance.

*133 illustrations facilitate the use of imagery to improve technique, artistic expression, and performance.

*Four exercises taught by Franklin and available on HK's website help dancers with essential rest and relaxation techniques.

Franklin provides hundreds of imagery exercises to refine improvisation, technique, and choreography. The 295 illustrations cover the major topics in the book, showing exercises to use in technique, artistic expression, and performance. In addition, Franklin supplies imagery exercises that can restore and regenerate the body through massage, touch, and stretching. And he offers guidance in using imagery to convey information about a dancer's steps and to clarify the intent and content of movement.

This new edition of Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance can be used with Franklin's Dynamic Alignment Through Imagery, Second Edition, or on its own. Either way, readers will learn how to combine technical expertise with imagery skills to enrich their performance, and they will discover methods they can use to explore how imagery connects with dance improvisation and technique.

Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance uses improvisation exercises to help readers investigate new inner landscapes to create and communicate various movement qualities, provides guidelines for applying imagery in the dance class, and helps dancers expand their repertoire of expressiveness in technique and performance across ballet, modern, and contemporary dance.

This expanded edition of Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance supplies imagery tools for enhancing or preparing for performance, and it introduces the importance of imagery in dancing and teaching dance. Franklin's method of using imagery in dance is displayed throughout this lavishly illustrated book, and the research from scientific and dance literature that supports Franklin's method is detailed.

The text, exercises, and illustrations make this book a practical resource for dancers and dance educators alike.

Reaching Athens: Community, Democracy and Other Mythologies in Adaptations of Greek Tragedy

FREEDownload : Reaching Athens: Community, Democracy and Other Mythologies in Adaptations of Greek Tragedy

Reaching Athens: Community, Democracy and Other Mythologies in Adaptations of Greek Tragedy (New Comparative Criticism) by Margherita Laera
2013 | ISBN: 3034308078 | English | 319 pages | PDF | 17 MB

Reaching Athens: Community, Democracy and Other Mythologies in Adaptations of Greek Tragedy
Why do revivals and adaptations of Greek tragedy still abound in European national theatres, fringe stages and international festivals in the twenty-first century? Taking as its starting point the concepts of myth developed by Jean-Luc Nancy and Roland Barthes and the notion of the classical' outlined by Salvatore Settis, this book analyses discourses around community, democracy, origin and Western identity in stage adaptations of Greek tragedy on contemporary European stages. The author addresses the ways in which the theatre produces and perpetuates the myth of classical' Greece as the origin of Europe and how this narrative raises issues concerning the possibility of a transnational European community. Each chapter explores a pivotal problem in modern appropriations of Greek tragedy, including the performance of the chorus, the concept of the obscene' and the audience as the demos of democracy. Modern versions of Women of Troy, Hippolytus and Persians performed in Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Poland and Greece are analysed through a series of comparative case studies. By engaging with the work of prominent theatre-makers such as Mark Ravenhill, Michel Vinaver, Katie Mitchell, Sarah Kane, Krzysztof Warlikowski, Romeo Castellucci, Calixto Bieito and Rimini Protokoll, this volume offers a critique of contemporary democratic Europe and the way it represents itself onstage.

Contemplations of the Spiritual in Art

FREEDownload : Contemplations of the Spiritual in Art

Rina Arya, "Contemplations of the Spiritual in Art"
English | ISBN: 3034307500 | 2013 | 254 pages | PDF | 9 MB

Contemplations of the Spiritual in Art
This essay collection exploring the relationship between spirituality and art is the result of a conference that took place in December 2010 at Liverpool Cathedral. During this two-day event, artists, clergy and academics from different disciplines – including theology and art history – came together to discuss the relationship between spirituality and art. One of the objectives of both the conference and this collection was to clarify what is meant by spiritual art or, indeed, what it means to describe an artwork as being spiritual. The essays expand on this issue by addressing the following questions: what is the relationship between spirituality and art in the context of the art gallery, religious institutions and the academy and at personal and social levels? How and why does art convey spirituality and, conversely, why and how is spirituality made manifest in works of art? Many of the contributors examine the spiritual aspects of particular artworks, artists or artistic traditions, and ask what we mean by the spiritual in art. The volume articulates the interdisciplinary nature of the subject and explores pressing concerns of the contemporary age.

The Legacy of Opera: Reading Music Theatre as Experience and Performance

FREEDownload : The Legacy of Opera: Reading Music Theatre as Experience and Performance

Dominic Symonds and Pamela Karantonis, "The Legacy of Opera: Reading Music Theatre as Experience and Performance"
English | ISBN: 9042036915 | 2013 | 270 pages | PDF | 8 MB

The Legacy of Opera: Reading Music Theatre as Experience and Performance
is the first volume in a series of books compiled by the Music Theatre Working Group of the International Federation for Theatre Research. The series explores the widening of the meaning of the term "music theatre" to reflect new ways of thinking about this creative practice beyond the genres circumscribed by discourses of theatre studies and musicology. Specifically it interrogates the experience of music theatre and its performance energies for contemporary audiences who engage with the emergence of new expressive idioms, new performative paradigms, new technologies and new ways of thinking. The Legacy of Opera considers some of the ways in which opera's influence has informed our understanding of and approach to the musical stage, from the multiple perspectives of the ideological, historical, corporeal and artistic. With contributions from international scholars in music theatre, its chapters explore both canonic and experimental examples of music theatre, spanning a period from the seventeenth century to the present day.
