Dictionary of the theatre : terms, concepts, and analysis by Patrice Pavis( Book )

104 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 2,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This encyclopedic dictionary includes theoretical, technical, and semiotic terms and concepts. Alphabetical entries range from 'absurd' to 'word scenery' and treat the reader to a vast panoply of theatre and theory. The extended discussions are supported by useful examples drawn from the international repertoire of plays and playwrights, both classic and contemporary." "This dictionary is remarkably well integrated, partly because of its excellent system of cross-referencing, but also because it represents the vision and scholarship of a single, recognized authority. There is no other source like it available and it will be warmly welcomed by the English-language theatre world."--Jacket
Theatre at the crossroads of culture by Patrice Pavis( )

46 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and French and held by 2,215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Western culture has a long and fraught history of cultural appropriation, a history that has particular resonance within performance practice. Patrice Pavis asks what is at stake politically and aesthetically when cultures meet at the crossroads of theatre? A series of major recent productions are analysed, including Peter Brook's Mahabharata, Cixous/Mnouchkine's Indiande, and Barba's Faust. These focus discussions on translation, appropriation, adaptation, cultural misunderstanding, and theatrical exploration. Never losing sight of the theatrical experience, Pavis confronts problems of colonialism, anthropology, and ethnography. This signals a radical movement away from the director and the word, towards the complex relationship between performance, performer, and spectator. Despite the problematic politics of cultural exchange in the theatre, interculturalism is not a one-sided process. Using the metaphor of the hourglass to discuss the transfer between source and target culture, Pavis asks what happens when the hourglass is turned upside down, when the 'foreign' culture speaks for itself

Analyzing performance : theater, dance, and film by Patrice Pavis( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides conceptual tools for understanding a range of performance, including theater, dance, cinema, other audiovisual media, and mime. This book develops protocols for the analysis of performance at every level, from the minute gestures and facial expressions of an actor to the social network in which theater is embedded, and respects the importance of every aspect of performance, including actor, costume, space, time, music, and lighting. With a keen awareness of the roles of social context in the interpretation of performance, the author leads the reader from a purely formal analysis to a semiology and anthropology of performance, where spectator and actor are equally objects of study. Drawn from performance traditions and innovations all over the world, the many examples in this book make critical techniques vivid and concret
L'analyse des spectacles : théâtre, mime, danse, danse-théâtre, cinéma by Patrice Pavis( Book )

48 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "Redonner au spectateur confiance en son propre regard, une confiance qu'il n'aurait jamais dû perdre, telle est l'ambition de ce parcours à travers les spectacles et quelques manières de les contempler. Théâtre parlé, mime, danse, danse-théâtre, performance, cinéma et média audiovisuels : comment les analyser, notamment lorsqu'ils se combinent en des oeuvres hybrides? Comment distinguer leurs composantes : jeu de l'acteur, voix, musique, espace, temps, costumes, éclairages, etc.? L'analyse et l'interprétation se placent résolument du point de vue psychologique, sociologique, anthropologique et interculturel du récepteur. Le spectateur est encouragé à revoir sa façon de décoder un spectacle. Les études théâtrales s'associent aux Performances Studies pour mieux évaluer les productions postmodernes et postdramatiques, pour réfléchir sur les moyens de créer ou de recevoir un spectacle. L'exemple récent des Marchands (2006), de Joël Pommerat, nous offre l'occasion d'observer les nouvelles identités du spectateur. Tout est possible, ou presque."
Contemporary mise en scène : staging theatre today by Patrice Pavis( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary Mise en Scène is Patrice Pavis's masterful analysis of the role that staging has played in the creation and practice of theatre throughout history. This stunningly ambitious study considers the staged reading, at the frontiers of mise en scène; scenography, which sometimes replaces staging; the reinterpretation of classical and contemporary works; the development of intercultural theatre and ritual; new technologies and their usage live on the stage; and the postmodern practice of deconstruction. But it also applies sustained critical attention to the challenges of defining mise en scène, of tracking its development, and of exploring its possible futures. Joel Anderson's powerful new translation lucidly realises Pavis's investigation of the changing possibilities for stagecraft in the context of performance art, physical theatre and modern theory."--Back cover
Dictionnaire de la performance et du théâtre contemporain by Patrice Pavis( Book )

20 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Routledge Dictionary of Contemporary Theatre and Performance provides the first authoritative alphabetical guide to the theatre and performance of the last 30 years. Conceived and written by one of the foremost scholars and critics of theatre in the world, it literally takes us from Activism to Zapping, analysing everything along the way from Body Art and the Flashmob to Multimedia and the Postdramatic. What we think of as 'performance' and 'drama' has undergone a transformation in recent decades. Similarly how these terms are defined, used and critiqued has also changed, thanks to interventions from a panoply of theorists from Derrida to Ranciere. Patrice Pavis's Dictionary provides an indispensible roadmap for this complex and fascinating terrain; a volume no theatre bookshelf can afford to be without." --

L' analyse des textes dramatiques de Sarraute à Pommerat by Patrice Pavis( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'analyse des textes dramatiques est dans une situation paradoxale : on a tellement répété que le théâtre n'appartient pas à la littérature mais aux arts de la scène qu'on en avait presque oublié l'analyse du texte. Cet ouvrage est venu proposer une méthode d'analyse des textes modernes et contemporains : il permet aujourd'hui de décrire et interpréter des pièces, en dépit de leur foisonnante diversité et de leur abord parfois difficile. Une dizaine de pièces de langue française sont étudiées selon une méthodologie de la lecture du théâtre écrit contemporain, librement inspirée de l'analyse dramaturgique mais aussi des travaux d'Eco, de l'esthétique de la réception et de la coopération du lecteur. Ce livre s'adresse aux étudiants en lettres et en théâtre, aux élèves comédiens ainsi qu'au public intéressé, mais parfois aussi désorienté par l'écriture dramatique d'aujourd'hui. Patrice PAVIS, après avoir été professeur à l'université de Paris 8, est actuellement professeur au département de l'université du Kent à Cantorbéry et à l'université nationale des Arts de Corée
