The theatre of Harold Pinter by Mark Taylor-Batty( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The plays of the late Nobel laureate Harold Pinter have formed part of the canon of world theatre since the 1960s. Frequently revived on the professional stage, and studied in almost every Theatre Studies course, his importance and influence is hard to overestimate. This 'Critical Companion' offers an assessment of Pinter's entire body of work for the stage, appraising his skill as a dramatist and considering his impact and legacy. Through a clear focus on issues of theatricality and the effect of the plays in performance, this book considers Pinter's chief narrative concerns and offers a unifying theme through which over four decades of work may be understood. Plays are considered in themed chapters that follow the chronological sequence of work, illuminating the development of his aesthetic and concerns

Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot by Mark Taylor-Batty( Book )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This title offers informative critical introduction to Beckett's "Waiting for Godot", one of the most commonly studied modern plays."Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot" is not only an indisputably important and influential dramatic text - it is also one of the most significant western cultural landmarks of the twentieth century. Originally written in French, the play first amazed and appalled Parisian theatre-goers and critics before receiving a harshly dismissive initial critical response in Britain in 1955. Its influence since then on the international stage has been significant, impacting on generations of actors, directors and audiences. This guide provides a comprehensive critical introduction to "Waiting for Godot" from the controversial first performances to recent productions."--Publisher description

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Language Culture Type grew out of the first international type-design competition, the 2001 bukva:raz!, whose goal was to promote global cultural pluralism, interaction, and diversity in typographic communications as part of the United Nations Year of Dialog among Civilizations. The book lavishly presents the winning entries, along with information about each typeface, its language, and its designer. A series of essays gives context for the interplay of types and languages in the world today including the attempt to mesh all existing scripts into a single digital encoding system called Unicode. It also delves into the specific issues around developing typefaces for the many linguistic cultures in the world, from the various Cyrillic letterforms to Vietnams ancient ideographic script

Roger Blin : collaborations and methodologies by Mark Taylor-Batty( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roger Blin's career in the Arts was woven inextricably into the fabric of the Twentieth-Century French Avant-Garde. First appearing in the films of Abel Gance, Marcel Carné and Jean Cocteau, his acting career led him to a close friendship and association with Antonin Artaud, for whom he performed the function of assistant director. He championed Samuel Beckett's En attendant Godot, otherwise rejected unanimously by the French theatrical establishment, was Jean Genet's director of choice and was long associated with artists and practitioners as diverse as Arthur Adamov, Jean-Louis Barrault and Jacques Prévert. Marxist in outlook, Blin also sought to apply rigorous humanist principles to his art and delighted in the opportunities he enjoyed to disrupt and upturn the attitudes and complacencies of certain of his audiences. This book surveys all aspects of Blin's artistic output to consider and clarify his motivations, his ambitions and his aesthetic preferences. In doing so, the author hopes to offer perspectives on the methodologies that Blin employed and define the influence his work and his legacy has exerted on the French and World stage

Brecht in practice : theatre, theory and performance by David Barnett( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Bertolt Brecht's reputation as a flawed, irrelevant or difficult thinker for the theatre can often go before him to such an extent that we run the risk of forgetting the achievements that made him and his company, the Berliner Ensemble, famous around the world. David Barnett examines both Brecht the theorist and Brecht the practitioner to reveal the complementary relationship between the two. This book aims to sensitize the reader to the approaches Brecht took to the world and the stage with a view to revealing just how carefully he thought about and realized his vision of a politicized, interventionist theatre. What emerges is a nuanced understanding of his concepts, his work with actors and his approaches to directing. The reader is encouraged to engage with Brecht's method that sought to 'make theatre politically' in order to locate the innovations he introduced into his stagecraft. There are many examples given of how Brecht's ideas can be staged, and the final chapter takes two very different plays and asks how a Brechtian approach can enliven and illuminate their production. Ultimately, the book invites readers, students and theatre-makers to discover new ways of apprehending and making use of Brecht"--

Watching war on the twenty-first century stage : spectacles of conflict by Clare Finburgh( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"What do we watch when we watch war? At a time when spectacle and conflict have joined forces via audio-visual technologies in ways that are more powerful than ever, who now manages public perceptions of war and how? Watching War on the Twenty-First Century Stage: Spectacles of Conflict examines how theatre in the UK has staged, debated and challenged the ways in which spectacle is habitually weaponized in times of war. In this original and interdisciplinary interrogation Clare Finburgh provides a richly provocative account of the structuring role that spectacle plays in warfare, engaging with the works of philosopher Guy Debord, cultural theorist Jean Baudrillard, visual studies specialist Marie-José Mondzain, and performance scholar Hans-Thies Lehmann. Throughout her study, Finburgh offers coherence to a large and expanding field of theatrical war representations by analysing a wide spectrum of works, including expressionist drama, documentary theatre, comedy, musical satire and dance theatre: among the productions considered are Nigel Jamieson's Honour Bound, Lola Arias's MINEFIELD, Mark Ravenhill's Shoot/Get Treasure/Repeat, Hayley Squires's Vera Vera Vera, Lone Twin's Alice Bell, Richard Norton-Taylor's verbatim tribunal play Tactical Questioning, and Dennis Kelly's Osama the Hero. Through her analysis, Finburgh demonstrates how features unique to the theatrical art--the construction of a fiction in the presence of the audience--can present possibilities for a more informed engagement with how spectacles of war are produced and circulated."--
Adaptation in contemporary theatre : performing literature by Frances Babbage( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why are so many theatre productions adaptations of one kind of another? Why do contemporary practitioners turn so frequently to non-dramatic texts for inspiration? This study explores the fascination of novels, short stories, children's books and autobiographies for theatre makers and examines what 'becomes' of literary texts when these are filtered into contemporary practice that includes physical theatre, multimedia performance, puppetry, immersive and site-specific performance and live art. In Adaptation in Contemporary Theatre, Frances Babbage sets out a series of fresh critical perspectives on the theory of adaptation in theatre-making, focusing on meditations of prose literature within contemporary performance. Individual chapters explore the significance and impact of books as physical objects within productions; the relationship between the dramatic adaptation and literary edition; storytelling on the page and in performance; literary space and theatrical space; and prose fiction reframed as 'found text' in contemporary theatre and live art. Case studies are drawn from internationally acclaimed companies including Complicite, Elevator Repair Service, Kneehigh, Forced Entertainment, Gob Squad, Teatro Kismet and Stan's Cafe. Adaptation in Contemporary Theatre is a compelling and provocative resource for anyone interested in the potential and the challenges of using prose literature ad material for new theatrical performance."--
