How do historians represent the past? How do theatre historians represent performance events? The fifteen challenging essays in Representing the Past: Essays in Performance Historiography focus on the fundamental epistemological conditions and procedures that serve as the foundational ideas that guide all historians in their endeavors.

Theatricality by Tracy C Davis ( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Polish and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This collection of essays explores the changing connotations of "theatricality" for theatrical performance and everyday life. Six case studies, each written by a specialist in the field, use historically specific circumstances to illustrate how explanations of theatricality relate to political and cultural issues ranging from contemorary gender theory to Confucian philosophy, anti-theatrical prejudices, aesthetics of realism and politicized spectacle. This book establishes the terms of debates for theatricality's place within performance theory."--BOOK JACKET

Stagestruck filmmaker : D.W. Griffith & the American theatre by David Mayer ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An actor, a vaudevillian, and a dramatist before he became a filmmaker, D.W. Griffith used the resources of theatre to great purpose and to great ends. In pioneering the quintessentially modern medium of film from the 1890s to the 1930s, he drew from older, more broadly appealing stage forms of melodrama, comedy, vaudeville, and variety. In Stagestruck Filmmaker, David Mayer brings Griffith's process vividly to life, offering detailed and valuable insights into the racial, ethnic, class, and gender issues of these transitional decades
Theatre & identity in imperial Russia by Catherine Schuler ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What role did the theatre-both institutionally and literally-play in Russia's modernization? How did the comparatively harmonious relationship that developed among the state, the nobility, and the theatre in the eighteenth century transform into ideological warfare between the state and the intelligentsia in the nineteenth? How were the identities of the Russian people and the Russian soul configured and altered by actors in St. Petersburg and Moscow? Using the dramatic events of nineteenth-century Russian history as a backdrop, Catherine Schuler answers these questions by revealing the intric

A transnational community of scholars : the theatre Historiography working group in IFTR/FIRT by Thomas Postlewait ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The history of the Theatre Historiography Working Group in IFTR/FIRT provides a case study of how and why the Federation has been transformed by its working groups during the last two decades. Founded in 1992, the historiography group has developed into one of the largest and most active in IFTR/FIRT. Over the last nineteen years, the members of the group, drawn from many of the countries in the Federation, have used the annual meetings to develop a diverse and often challenging scholarship on the history of theatre (broadly defined). By focusing on the basic issues in historiography, the participating scholars have refined their research and writing methods. More over, the essays and books, published in several languages, have contributed to major transformations in the methods and topics in performance history. The working group, besides serving as a transnational community for historical scholarship, has also contributed to revisionist methods in the teaching of theatre history in dozens of countries, especially during the last decade
Theatre is more beautiful than war German stage directing in the late twentieth century by Marvin Carlson ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In almost every area of production, German theatre of the past forty years has achieved a level of distinction unique in the international community. This flourishing theatrical culture has encouraged a large number of outstanding actors, directors, and designers as well as video and film artists. The dominant figure throughout these years, however, has remained the director. In this stimulating and informative book, noted theatre historian Marvin Carlson presents an in-depth study of the artistic careers, working methods, and most important productions of ten of the leading directors of this
Molière, the French Revolution, and the theatrical afterlife by Mechele Leon ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
From 1680 until the French Revolution, when legislation abolished restrictions on theatrical enterprise, a single theatre held sole proprietorship of Molière's works. After 1791, his plays were performed in new theatres all over Paris by new actors, before audiences new to his works. Both his plays and his image took on new dimensions. In Molière, the French Revolution, and the Theatrical Afterlife, Mechele Leon convincingly demonstrates how revolutionaries challenged the ties that bound this preeminent seventeenth-century comic playwright to the Old Regime and provided him with a place of hon

Strange duets impresarios and actresses in the American theatre, 1865-1914 by Kim Marra ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Autocratic male impresarios increasingly dominated the American stage between 1865 and 1914. Many rose from poor immigrant roots and built their own careers by making huge stars out of "undiscovered," Anglo-identified actresses. Reflecting the antics of self-made industrial empire-builders and independent, challenging New Women, these theatrical potentates and their protégées gained a level of wealth and celebrity comparable to that of Hollywood stars today. In her engaging and provocative Strange Duets, Kim Marra spotlights three passionate impresario-actress relationships of exceptional dura
