Theater of war( Visual )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An examination of Bertolt Brecht's "Mother Courage and her children", and the political philosophies the play represents. Preparing for The Public Theater's 2006 production of Brecht's anti-war play, Meryl Streep allows a camera crew to document her rehearsal process and interest in the work. Moreover, the life and times of Brecht himself are followed, most notably the playwrites' escape from Nazi Germany, subsequent exile, testimony to the House Un-American Activities Committee, and his eventual return to the country where the play was first staged. Along with backstage scenes and discussion by theatre notables such as Tony Kushner and Streep's costar Kevin Kline, the documentary seeks to depict the history and inspirations underlying the play's themes
How to draw a bunny by Ray Johnson( Visual )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the fascinating, often hilarious, and always enigmatic world of artist and underground icon Ray Johnson whose mysterious suicide frames the film. He was considered a genius whose collages have been exhibited in major museums around the world
The First Amendment project( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some assembly required: This film examines the protests during the 2004 Republican National Convention focusing on the disconnect between society's desire for order and the NYPD's overzealous application of force in stamping out potential threats to the placid image of the GOP's "big tent." Mainstream media downplayed the protests to the point of near-invisibility during the convention, so this portrait of articulate protesters serves as a corrective
Theater of war( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A behind-the-scenes look at The Public Theater's production of Bertolt Brecht's "Mother Courage" that examines the playwright's life and ideas. In the summer of 2006, Meryl Streep took time out from making movies, and took on the role of a lifetime: the lead in Bertolt Brecht's classic anti-war play Mother Courage and her children. And for the first time she allowed a camera crew to document her rehearsal process. Theater of War not only takes us back-stage with one of the greatest actresses of our time, it also takes us back in time, uncovering the story of Brecht's flight from the Nazis, his years in exile, and his eventual return to Germany where he first staged Mother Courage. Along the way, Tony Award winning playwright Tony Kushner and others explore the terrifying theme of Brecht's masterpiece: why does history repeat itself in an endless cycle of violence and warfare?

Some Aspects of Adiabatic Shear Bands( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The dynamics of adiabatic shear band formation is considered making use of a simplified thermo/visco/plastic flow law. A new numerical solution is used to follow the growth of a perturbation from initiation, through early growth and severe localization, to a slowly varying terminal configuration. Asymptotic analyses predict the early and late stage patterns, but the timing and structure of the abrupt transition to severe localization can only be studied numerically, to date. A characteristic feature of the process is that temperature and plastic strain rate begin to localize immediately, but only slowly, whereas the stress first evolves almost as if there were no perturbation, but then collapses rapidly when severe localization occurs
Adiabatic Shear Bands in One Dimension( )
