Les contributions réunies dans ce volume interrogent la figuration du corps, une incarnation du vivant, marqué par un certain brouillage, une déroute des corps qui se dessinent comme commencement dans un flux organique faisant co-exister virtualité de l'être, une fiction ou des mirages du corps. Prenant appui sur des expériences artistiques contemporaines ayant permis de repenser la question du corps, les contributions réunies dans ce volume interrogent la mécanique du corps, questionnent le statut du vivant, confronté à sa propre finitude, à l'accueil de nouveaux corps - implants, et parfois

Tadeusz Kantor : "Le Théâtre de la Mort" ou L'Écriture de la Mémoire : les rites africains aux confluences de la scène kantorienne by Amos Passing Fergombé( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tadeusz Kantor (Wielopole, Krakow 1915 - Krakow, 1990), polish director, scenery artist, author and painter, made his mark on the plastic and theatrical universe for almost half a century through his radicalism and his peculiar artistic and scenic practices. His work lies on the twisting path of creation, and the figures of his theatre are a reflection of the 20th century strangeness, waking dreams, and dramas. This thesis seeks to bring together the fragmentary faces of Kantor's work in order to analyse it from three points of view: space and the bedroom of the imagination, the most insignificant and base object, and the scenic text. This contribution, based on the biography of the author, his theoretical manifestos and his theatrical works, will create an inventory of the masks and blasons of death in the light of a writing of memory. It is at the coming together of death and memory that the foundations of Kantor's theatre will become clear. Death, perceived through decomposition and the basest level of reality, paradoxically gives us hope of life. To keep this thought of death and memory fresh in our minds the second part of our approach will be to propose a certain reading of African funeral rituals in order to establish a basis for a scenic text that could shed light upon an Africa in distress. In this the celebration of the funeral rites of the Moundang people of Cameroon and Chad will be at the heart of a project in which actors, spectators, space, objects and texts will be used for a dramatic form of writing which conserves a memory of the living, and also for a dialogue between death and life. Where Kantor and Africa come together the theatre of death will finally promise a future and found a new form of writing rooted in its awareness of the dramas of our world
Théâtre & fantastique : Une autre scène du vivant( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv.: L'histoire du théâtre et les différentes élaborations théoriques d'une " théâtrologie " accordent peu de place au " fantastique ". Le discours sur le " genre " dit fantastique est rarement envisagé par les spécialistes de la scène, et l'approche du fantastique se réduit très souvent à une tentative de " naturalisation ", où d'autres étiquettes s'imposent, mais qui peinent tout autant à dessiner des frontières fermes et définitives. Parallèlement, les recherches consacrées au fantastique littéraire abordent le théâtre sous un angle uniquement textuel, oubliant que le théâtre trouve sa réalisation dans un espace scénique. On assiste dès lors à un phénomène de " dénaturation ", où les effets recherchés recouperaient ceux de textes dits canoniques. Loin de se contenter de cette bipolarisation où s'imposent la naturalisation et la dénaturation, Otrante a jugé nécessaire d'envisager une ligne de partage placée sous la liaison ambitieuse entre " théâtre " et " fantastique ". Partant du principe d'une impossibilité de conceptualisation théorique si la précellence est donnée à l'un ou l'autre " genre " (théâtre vs. Fantastique), les études ici réunies entendent ainsi cartographier un territoire qui pour l'instant n'avait pas de nom ni véritablement de localisation
Le mouvement des images : la lecture du temps by Chih-Wei Lin( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have always been attracted by the successive images, as we automatically look at them one after the other. It seems that these images attract our look. Nevertheless, in spite of this type of images long practice, we don't know much about them. In this way, because these images attract our look, and our look passes from one to another, some time exists in this action, or rather among these images. However, this question remain complex and difficult to untangle. These questions considered about successive images form a part of our problems. In our thesis, we have the ontology of successive images, and we have thought these questions through the manner of telling phenomenon of these unique images. We looked into successive images according to the philosophy. Through theories of the English empiricism, we found a way, namely the reality of these type of images, and this reflection about the ontology of these successive images movement constitutes the first part of our research. Extending our thought on the movement of successive images, we attempted to solve questions on the time, in other words, on the duration in successive images. According to the Bergson's theories, Deleuze's and Bachelard's, our thoughts on time, duration generally, duration in successive images, life...etc, form the second part, in which we consider the travelling and the interval. Some artistic examples accompany our philosophical theories, in order to understand their application. In this way, for the third part of this thesis, we have realized watercolor to enforce and examine our theories. Further, through our artistic practice, we have found new ideas, as well as our future research problems. In composing these theories, artistic examples and implementation, our research which is interdisciplinary, namely philosophy, photography, cinematography and plastic arts, devoted to mainly resolve our thirst of knowledge about successive images
Belles de Jazz. Voix et violence des figures féminines dans le théâtre de Koffi Kwahulé by Fanny Le Guen( )

2 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Koffi Kwahulé inherited from the Ivorian literary, artistic and theatrical culture.However, as he has been living in exile in France for thirty years, a transatlantictension pervades his writing and thus creates a contemporary black femininemythology. The voices and violence of powerful female figures that mirror archetypesin Ivorian Theatre, create a rhapsody dimension in this dramaturgy, which is aimed atdeconstructing the classical drama and the historical and cultural representations thatcorrupt international relations. Female figures in Belles de Jazz give the dramaturgyits tempo and make it develop into a jazz rhetorics deeply rooted into the author's ownmythology, similar to mid-twentieth century Afro American theatre
Scénographie interactive, interfaces et interférences by Mathilde Murat( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present dissertation partakes of an ongoing inquiry into our kinesthetic experience and the influence of the environment on our perceptions. The technologies of interactivity, which stem from cybernetics and from the rise of computer technology, are major tools in this exploration, as they enable the emergence of scenographies whose specificity is the way they integrate corporeality in its autopoieticdimension, by means of the interface-Based devices.This dissertation is the product of research work of a practical and of a theoretical nature. The first part tackles the question of what is at stake, in relationships, between plasticity and corporeality. A few paragraphs are devoted to modes of interaction in the context of immersive plasticity. In interactive scenographies, body and space are complexly interconnected. The scenographies lead to the emergence of new cognitive possibilities, notably at the level of the sensory-Motor perception patterns. They are explored through the practice of installation. The second part focuses on the stakes of a specific spectaroriality. Following previous approaches, we proposeto identify an epistemological shift of the notion of space which occurs with the integration of hypermedia computationalareas into the topological field. Being thus made an interactor, the spectator becomes a potential author. The notion of auctoriality is tempered in the way of constraint caused by the apparatus. By resorting to systemic thought and relying on theanalysis of our productions, we can define the dialectic between constraint and freedom as programmed action fields inrelation with individual action fields. Steigler's theory enables us to regard the spectator as a practician-Body in the plasticsphere. The third part deals with the poietics of interaction technologies, on which is brought to bear an approach focusingon plasticity. As metatools, the interactivity and the digital tools it requires in the constitution of media promote a new approach to the worshop. The multiplicity of skills this practice involves leads to poietic considerations as regards collective practices.The identification of a culture specific to digital art as a cross-Disciplinary field underlines the influence of a professional field established around these practices. Interactivity practice, by experimentation, stends out in a creation-Research-Profession process

L'image et son empreinte dans les mises en scène de Daniel Benoin : Itinéraire et processus de création de la Comédie de Saint-Étienne au Théâtre National de Nice (1975-2010) by Angélique Derambure( )

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

Metteur en scène contemporain dont l'itinéraire personnel est une conséquence de la décentralisation théâtrale, Daniel Benoin tire sa force de création du passage de l'image mentale à sa concrétisation dans le spectacle vivant par l'hybridation de savoirs multiples et de techniques artistiques. Cette étude d'un destin particulier dans un rapport holiste avec l'art dramatique permet une théorisation du processus de création dans lequel un regard croisé entre phénoménologie et pragmatique confirme l'hypothèse d'une empreinte matérielle et stylistique. L'approche comparative d'un grand nombre de représentations et de l'ensemble des répétitions préalables à cinq spectacles (Wozzeck, La Cantatrice chauve, Faces, la reprise de La Cantatrice chauve, Le roman d'un trader) définira cette empreinte comme idiosyncrasique, formelle et originale, le tout commun à l'ensemble de l'œuvre observée. Ainsi, grâce aux concours de pré-images modulables et fécondes, les images mentales primordiales s'installent au cœur de la création et la vision onirique se révèle être l'essence même de la particularité artistique de ce metteur en scène. La recherche entreprise ouvre alors des perspectives renouvelées quant à l'esthétique et à la présence/absence de l'artiste dans des domaines élargis (cinéma, danse, peinture, photographie, musique, écriture)
Les nouveaux territoires du numérique comme espaces de création artistique by Wafa Bourkhis( )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Prenant appui sur une analyse des œuvres artistiques et littéraires dont Utopie de T. MORE, le Samurai Virtuel de N. STEPHENSON ainsi que Le Corps utopique, suivi de Les hétérotopies de Michel FOUCAULT, la thèse examine trois hypothèses de l'espace territorialisé par les artistes : Le Topos, l'Hétérotopos et l'Utopos. Trois genres d'espaces ont été étudiés : Les MUVEs (Second Life et les Open Sims), les Machinimas et le cinéma (le film Avatar de J. CAMERON).Ces nouveaux espaces artistiques favorisent une communication entre les territoires réels et concrets avec ceux virtuels et actuels se trouvant dans le cyberespace comme le mentionne P. LEVY. Selon lui, les créations et les textes de Fred FOREST ont mis en évidence la notion du cyberterritoire.Ces territoires numériques en émergence sont hétérotopiques et considérés comme des espaces autres, hétérogènes, de transition et de contestation selon FOUCAULT.L'approche des enjeux utopiques de ces espaces numériques et fictionnels instaurés dans le film Avatar de James CAMERON et les Machinimas nous conduit à être attentifs à la problématique du corps envisagé comme avatar, aux espaces virtuels et à la manière dont les artistes appréhendent des îles de Second Life. Il s'agit de dégager les codes des mondes virtuels et de comprendre les enjeux utopiques des espaces virtuels conçus comme un territoire virtuel imaginaire.La thèse analyse l'espace internet, en tant que topos hypermatériel et virtuel, dont les programmes et les interfaces peuvent simuler le réel, le dépasser tout en nous faisant entrer dans un monde rêvé ou bien utopique

L'inconscient en images : le théâtre de la Compagnie Philippe Genty by Anastasia Patts( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The aim of this dissertation is to analyse the process connected to the theatrical scenery of the theatre company created by Philippe Genty, previously not so frequently studied in France and overseas. The company uses the visual dramaturgy as a scenery writing characterized by the use of different arts without the support of literature. Therefore, production of meaning occurs through binding of scenery images to theatrical aesthetics. This particular theatrical work represents a universe of the unconscious mind filled in with memories, traumas and personal dreams of the creators of the Company. The main subject of these spectacles is about the journey, which has as key purpose the search for the reasons of a traumatic event. The central figure faces different obstacles during his journey which he must go through and ends up into the awareness and the quietness of his internal conflict. In order to point out and interpret scenic images, we do analyse the function of the elements met in this particular theatre art (puppets, natural elements, dances, movements, voices and words) through psychoanalytical, phenomenological and semiotic approaches. A careful survey of these themes has demonstrated the existence of scene subjects and recurring themes of the world of the unconscious coming up into most of the spectacles. These themes, for example, are as follows: fragmented body, Oedipus complexes, dissociation of the character's mind, childhood fears, remoted and oppressed feelings, sense of guilt, expressed images of the anima, of oneself and shadows of the personality. This detailed analysis has also shown light on the technical and metaphorical means used by the Company in the creation of the following spectacles (black shadows theater, hand-moved puppets by sight, confronting scenes with natural elements, change of visual scales, distortion of the scenic elements). All these repeated elements are joined together into the whole which we consider as scenic language of this particular theatre
L'oeuvre d'animation, lieux d'expériences cognitives et sensorielles by Inès Jerray( )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis is based on image practices dealing with the sensation of movement. Images and films are designed with drawings, objects and natural environments that change over time, like through biological mutations (plants), shift of scenery (lights), or manual constructions (buildings). Their processes of transformation open the way on the relationship between the body and the animation device. Cinema and visual arts are thus the main fields canvassed to investigate thecognitive and sensory experiences of motion. They concern the connection to affective places, shaped by the embodied experience of space, but also by technology. By focusing on the creative processes of animation films, visual arts productions and their devices, we examine our relationship with creation tools in everyday environments.The work of animation is approached as filmmaking and artistic creation, but it also reveals a particular relationship to the real, to the body set in motion. Based on the films of Jan Švankmajer, Lesley Adams, Blu, William Kentridge, Pierre Hébert or Virgil Widrich, this research explores the ambiguous connection to objects, to the memory as sensitive material, and the uncertain distance between the animate and inanimate. By shifting the organization and functions of elements, bymanipulating their images and objects, some animation practices reflect a disturbance of the sense, giving rise to imaginative projections and to a poetic potential. To examin the body as an interface of the resonance of animated images, the experience of motion is also approached throughout performative arts such as dance and theater.This research questions the limits of the body, the issue of fragmentation and partition, both in our cognitive arrangements and in manufacturing systems of animation
Processus de création théâtrale contemporaine en Afrique subsaharienne francophone : vers une poétique de la relation by Boukary Tarnagda( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Mus par la volonté de découvrir et d'exploiter les ressources de l'Afrique, les Occidentaux y ont apporté leurs cultures, et notamment la langue française. En s'intégrant au quotidien des habitants, cette langue a exporté les différents éléments de sa culture, dont le théâtre qui se place désormais au coeur des rencontres entre les artistes de France et d'Afrique subsaharienne francophone.Par le prisme d'événements artistiques majeurs comme les festivals, les artistes ont trouvé des espaces centraux d'expression sur les deux continents. Ainsi, ils ont pu nouer des relations de travail avec leurs pairs du reste du monde. A certains niveaux, les échanges qui s'en sont suivi ont permis des rencontres fructueuses lors de manifestations comme le Festival des Francophonies en Limousin, mais aussi le FITMO/FAB au Burkina Faso et le FITHEB au Bénin, tous événements émanant de l'Afrique subsaharienne francophone.Avec la mondialisation, les rencontres entre dramaturges se soldent parfois par des échanges au sein même des textes produits. Elles conduisent à des relations de travail qui conduisent à des hybridations et à des métissages qui transforment sans doute la teneur des productions dramaturgiques. En nous appuyant sur un corpus de textes d'auteurs contemporains, nous formulons ici l'hypothèse que les échanges entre artistes transforment les conditions de production comme les esthétiques en vigueur, cette dynamique générant l'émergence d'une poétique de la relation

Rapports entre arts plastiques et mode, travail ironique de l'image de la femme by Farah Kartibou( )

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

The research work gradually focused on a more and more deeper investigation of the universe related to fashion, and more particularly to a garment : the strapless corset. This raises the question of the relationships between art and the sewing craft work. We can look into it, through the work of artists such as Natacha Lesueur, Jana Sterbak, Niki de Saint 1 Phalle, Annette Messager and Elsa Schiaparelli. We can notice that most of these artists were feminists and we can make the assumption, that an esthetic work of this nature, involving a reflection on the image of women, creates an awareness on the position we confer to them in our society. Very often, an ironic attitude, even burlesque (or caricatural) was often looked for, to create a distance, and an attitude of surprise, appropriate to trigger an awareness of the situation. Moreover, it is also possible to investigate the body of the woman and the fantast around it, through the existence and the use of symbols such as trimmings, jewels, and bright and flash y materials. Although the representation of fashion has always existed in Art, this work will focus on modern and contemporary artists, who accompanied the birth and the development of the design artwork ... However it is also necessary to take into consideration, what happened during the Renaissance period, during which the notion of craftsmanship has developed, as well as the pathway of the bustier, from its creation until its deconstruction. And finally, how to position some of these works (or analysis) in conjunction with major art, and minor art, art work and artcraft ? Are they an extension of technical and symbolic practices so it leads to a combination
