During the so-called "Age of Melancholy," many writers invoked both traditional and new conceptualizations of the disease in order to account for various types of social turbulence, ranging from discontent and factionalism to civil war. Writing about melancholy became a way to explore both the causes and preventions of political disorder, on both specific and abstract levels. Thus, at one and the same moment, a writer could write about melancholy to discuss specific and ongoing political crises and to explore more generally the principles which generate political conflicts in the first place. In the course of developing a traditional discourse of melancholy of its own, English writers appropriated representations of the disease - often ineffectively - in order to account for the political turbulence during the civil war and Interregnum periods.

The reality of a play is in its performance. Making Theatre focuses on the processes by which performance is realized, analyzing three major areas: "Words" and the interpretation of text; "Vision" including scenery, costume and lighting; and "Music" which illustrates the importance of music in all stage action.The forms of theater covered include straight drama, the musical and opera. Taking productions well-known on both sides of the Atlantic, Peter Mudford examines plays by Shakespeare, Chekhov, Pirandello, Beckett, Pinter, Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller and David Mamet; musicals by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Cole Porter and Stephen Sondheim; and operas by Verdi, Wagner and Berg.This account of what makes theater important and how it works will be invaluable to teachers and students of drama and performance, as well as all those interested in theater as art.

This book explores the development of Robert Lepage’s distinctive approach to stage direction in the early (1984-1994) and middle (1995-2008) stages of his career, arguing that globalisation had a defining effect on shaping his aesthetic and his professional trajectory. In addition to globalisation theory, the book draws on cinema studies, queer theory, and theories of affect and reception. Each of six chapters treats a particular aspect of globalisation, using this as a means to explore one or more of Lepage’s productions. Productions discussed include The Dragon’s Trilogy, Needles and Opium, and The Far Side of the Moon. Making theatre global: Robert Lepage’s original stage productions will be of interest to scholars of contemporary theatre, advanced-level undergraduates, and arts lovers keen for new perspectives on one of the most talked-about theatre artists of the early 21st century.

Theatre Education And The Making Of Meanings

This book is a study of theatre's educational role during the 20th and the first years of the 21st centuries. It examines the variety of ways the theatre's educational potential has been harnessed and theorised, the claims made for its value and the tension bettween theatre as education and theatre as 'art': between theatre's aesthetic dimenstion and the 'utilitarian' or 'instrumental' role for which it has so often been pressed into service. Following a preliminary discussion of some key theoretical approaches to aesthetics, dramatic art and learning and, above all, the relationships between them, the study is organised into two broad chronological periods: early developments in European and American theatre up to the end of World War II, and participatory theatre and education since World War II. Within each period, a cluster of key themes is introduced and then re-visited and examined through a number of specific examples - seen within their cultural contexts - in subsequent chapters. Topics covered include an early use of theatre to campaign for prison reform; workers' theatre, agit-prop and American living newspapers in the 1930s; theatre's response to the dropping of the atom bomb in 1945; post-war theatre in education; theatre in prisons; and the use of performance in historic sites.

This conversational, straight-forward guide gives clarity and practical guidance to the sometimes mystifying questions of what creates ensemble bonds, how to fix them when they start to break, and how to strengthen and protect them"--

While readers of theater history will find this biography invaluable, those more interested in the personal story of a writer’s commitment to her craft and discipline will find Pollock’s story fascinating. While often calling her family past a “ghost story,” Pollock has coped with many much more corporeal challenges in her life. As a woman in a male-dominated field, as a mother of six children, as the survivor of an abusive marriage, she has managed to slay what Virginia Woolf once called the “angel in the house” to become one of Canada’s greatest living writers. Making Theatre: A Life of Sharon Pollock explores each of Pollock’s major plays and discusses many of their most interesting productions in Canada, the United States, Japan, and England.

Reminiscence theatre is about seeing and realising the dramatic potential in real life stories. It takes verbatim memories as the basis for theatre scripts, using the experiences of older people as a source of artistic productions and therapeutic creativity. This book is a comprehensive guide to the nature, practice and therapeutic effects of reminiscence theatre. Drawing on examples from a range of real-life case studies, Pam Schweitzer provides practical advice on the process of taking an oral history, creating from it a written script and developing that into a dramatic production, on whatever scale. The book outlines five components of key significance that the form affords: artistic development through creating original productions; cultural development, by creating reminiscence theatre in multi-cultural contexts, including dual-language productions; educational development through the intergenerational sharing and enactment of memories; psycho-social development for older people by reliving and reshaping past experiences; and health care, by using improvised reminiscence drama therapeutically with people with dementia and their carers. This book will be of great interest to theatre workers, social work professionals and carers of older people, arts therapy practitioners and students in these fields.

Making Theatre is an A - Z guide to making and performing theatre. There are hundreds of books on the various aspects of theatre but almost all of them are about theatre as it is practised in Europe and North America. Making Theatre is a guide to theatre that many theatre practitioners in the rest of the world might find refreshing and extremely helpful. With knowledge, experience and insights derived from over thirty years of practical theatre and teaching in many different countries in Africa and exposure to theatre from all over the world, Kavanagh takes the reader from the very earliest stages of involvement - forming or joining a group and beginning to act and make theatre through the directing and rehearsal process, the choices available in theatre techniques, kinds of theatre, staging, lighting and set right up to performance and post-performance, getting an audience, ethics and festivals. He advocates a democratic, collective and ethical approach based on respect and the centrality of the actor and he illustrates his points with examples from many different successful productions he and others have made and performed.

Six years ago the Preston Creative Living Centre, a small community agency in the diverse northern suburbs of Melbourne embarked upon a risky but exciting venture. It marshalled resources for people to engage in artistic and community processes together and became a performance venue for a series of vital and engaging performances. Over this time the space has become alive, filled with people and activity. Many a dance has been danced, many a song sung, many an object crafted and many a story told. Just as importantly, deep connections have been created between people, careful listening has occurred across deep divides of difference and new, shared understandings have been forged. This book is about creating partnerships between organisations, artists and communities for community artmaking. It is not a theoretical discussion of community cultural development. Instead it is the story of one organisation's experience with community performance-making, from the philosophy that informs the choices, to the nitty-gritty of doing the work. The authors aim to inspire the reader, and give practical support in the development and administration of exciting, viable and fruitful community art.
