History in the hands of the contemporary playwright, 2000-2015 : a feminist critique of normative historiography in British theatre

Fraser, Rebecca Amy January 2017 (has links)
Between 2000 and 2015 twelve of the UK’s leading producing theatres premiered twenty three plays by British playwrights where the action was set between 1882-1928. This historical period is significant; in 1882 the Married Women’s Property Act was passed and in 1928 equal enfranchisement for men and women was granted in the United Kingdom, hence, the historical period traces a shift in women’s rights from property ownership to the vote. This thesis investigates narratives within these plays and explores the development of a normative historiography that is drawn on, but predominantly left unquestioned, by playwrights as Britain’s past is reimagined. It is this normative historiography, operating in a theatrical context, which the thesis problematises and interrogates through the lens of contemporary British playwriting. This lens facilitates an exploration of the manner in which the representation of the past mirrors and/or challenges current feminist discourse and considers the cultural implications of the structures and techniques employed to retell women their history through this medium. Scholarship from the fields of academic and popular feminism, theatre studies, history and historiography shape the analytical framework of the thesis. Drawing on literature from these fields, this study conducts historically informed performance analysis that seeks to discover the sociocultural work done by contemporary plays that engage with the past. Archives of thirty British theatres have been surveyed to produce a database of plays that fall within the project boundaries; working with this data, trends and recurring themes have been identified, and subsequently chapters have been shaped to investigate dramaturgical questions in response to the field research. The dramaturgical questions explore: recurring modes of representation in plays that reimagine World War One; the representation of opposition in depictions of historical conflict; the retelling of specific historical narratives in relation to the challenge of staging ideas; and the recurrence of the heteronormative romantic plot. This thesis argues that when the playwright interrogates the normative dramaturgies and tropes they have inherited for historical representation, they assumes the role of historiographer and from this self-reflexive position recurring theatrical conventions for retelling the past are challenged. This perspective shifts attention beyond central patriarchal narratives of the past and facilitates engagement with the multiple avenues of enquiry regarding a historical moment. Engagement with the work of playwrights who foreground a historiographic awareness in their process, further illuminates the dialogue between representations of women in a historical context and contemporary feminist debate.

Investigações acerca do uso da narrativa no teatro contemporâneo /

Matias, Lígia Borges. January 2010 (has links)
Orientador: José Manuel Lázaro de Ortecho Ramírez / Banca: Alexandre Mate / Banca: Meran Muniz da Costa Vargens / Resumo: O estudo aborda características do teatro narrativo desenvolvido a partir de meados do século XX, no que se convencionou denominar pós-modernidade. Considerado o contexto do capitalismo multinacional, são apresentados possíveis motivadores sociais, políticos e econômicos, que influenciaram na dificuldade de comunicação, na fragilização da organização de coletivos e na redução da importância dada à memória. Demonstrou-se a intensa ligação entre arte e mercado, especialmente por meio da publicidade e de importações culturais, em uma era marcada pela globalização das redes de informação. Entretanto, percebeu-se que, da mesma maneira como na sociedade, paulatinamente, estruturam-se grupos de reivindicação face às exigências do sistema, na arte se desenvolvem manifestações de oposição às produções vinculada ao consumo de produtos ou ideologias. O teatro narrativo é discutido neste contexto; considerado como uma das possibilidades de restabelecer a comunicação, de propor a discussão e de promover o compartilhamento de experiências entre atores e público. Tais potenciais residem no fato de que ele, embora se configure por aspectos da arte pós-moderna, pressupõe simultaneamente a revalorização da fábula. A estes elementos soma-se o predomínio de aspectos provenientes do gênero épico, bem como a possibilidade de interlocução com o lírico e o dramático. O teatro narrativo é uma das formas de hibridização de linguagens que se desenvolveu no período; lida com elementos de outros momentos históricos e vertentes artísticas e se diferencia pela maneira de organizá-los. Além disso, mesmo diante de pausada caracterização da vertente teatral narrativa, a fim de que a discussão dos expedientes fosse suficientemente clara, optou-se pela exemplificação de duas possibilidade de articulação dos elementos cênicos por meio de espetáculos ...

Considered the context of the multinational capitalism, there are presented possible social, political and economic reasons that influenced in the difficulty of communication, in the weakness of collective organization and in the reduction of the importance given to memory. It was demonstrated the intense connection between arts and market, especially by publicity and cultural importation, in a time when prevails globalization and information nets. Nevertheless, it was noticed that, in the same way in society there are vindication groups before system requirements, in arts they were developed oppositional manifestations to the production related to products and ideology consumption. Narrative theatre is analyzed in this context; considered as one of the possibilities to re-establish communication, to propose discussions and to promote experience sharing between actors and audience. These potential exist because, even if narrative theatre has aspects of post-modern arts, it also presupposes fable valorization. To this element, they are added up the predominance of epic aspects, as well as the possibility of dialogue also with dramatic and lyric genders. Contemporary narrative theatre is one of the hybrid language forms appeared in XX century; it deals with elements from other historical moments and different artistic slops, and what makes it particular is its way of organizing the procedures. Moreover, in order to let concept considerations comprehensible enough, it was chosen to utilize two procedure articulation examples found in São Paulo's plays, Mire Veja, by Companhia do Feijão, and Hysteria, by Grupo XIX de Teatro / Mestre

"Someone, Anyone": Contemporary Theatre's Empathetic Villain

Marino, Kelli Rae January 2008 (has links)
Over the course of theatre's history, villains had stereotypical traits: revenge, greed, and power. Contemporary villains, though, evoke more empathy and sympathy from audiences than classic villains. In an effort to understand the roots of villainous behavior in contemporary characters, this thesis surveys a few notable classic villains to help compare the classic to the contemporary. While holding on to qualities of the classic stereotypes, contemporary playwrights create frequent moments of sympathy and empathy for villains who appeal to audiences' desires to connect, justify, and understand the reasons for their villainies. This thesis investigates despicable yet empathetic villains in three plays: Tony Kushner's Angels in America, Martin McDonagh's The Beauty Queen of Leenane, and Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's Assassins. An analysis of the playwrights' manipulation of characters and traits, as well as audience expectations, provides a theory on the new villain type and the lessons that can be learned.

Encenações do trágico na contemporaneidade / -

Nicole Alcebiades de Oliveira 14 October 2015 (has links)
Este projeto tem como objetivo investigar duas obras teatrais que poderiam ser pensadas como uma expressão do trágico no mundo contemporâneo. Tal investigação parte da tentativa de compreender o que seria essa tragicidade pesquisando o que haveria de intrínseco à tragédia na Grécia a partir de diferentes olhares filosóficos, e de que modo esse trágico poderia ainda existir hoje. Para delinear os parâmetros do que será chamado de trágico se partirá da conceituação do que é a tragédia feita pelos helenistas Vernant e Vidal-Naquet, para posteriormente entender como pensadores modernos olharam de modo particular para esta questão. Então se tomará como base a ideia de trágico definida por Steiner e os estudos filosóficos de Nietzsche e Agamben sobre tragédia e contemporaneidade. Paralelamente se investigará a teoria antropológica de René Girard sobre como a possibilidade da tragédia pode estar associada ao mecanismo da vítima expiatória. Em seguida será feita a análise das obras teatrais escolhidas justamente porque foram elaboradas a partir de uma pesquisa artística sobre o trágico e se terá como objetivo investigar como os seus criadores compreendem essa retomada da tragicidade e de que modo eles dialogam com os pensadores estudados. Os espetáculos contemporâneos escolhidos para análise são: Tragedia Endogonidia, uma série de episódios teatrais realizados pelo grupo Socìetas Rafaello Sanzio (2002-2004), e a peça Mantenha Fora do Alcance de Crianças, escrita em processo colaborativo com o coletivo [PH²] - estado de teatro (2009). / This project has as an objective investigates two theater works that might be thought like an expression of tragic in the contemporary world. That investigation begins with the tentative of understand what could be that tragic researching what have intrinsic in tragedy from Greece starting with different philosophical views, and how that tragic could still exist today. For outline the parameters that we will call tragic, we begins with the conceptualization of what is the tragedy made by Hellenists Vernant and Vidal-Naquet, for after understand how the modern theorists have a particular look for that question. So, we will build on the idea about tragic defended by Steiner and the philosophical studies from Nietzsche and Agamben about tragedy and contemporaneity. At the same time we will investigate the anthropological theory from René Girard of how the possibility of the tragedy could be associated with expiatory victim mechanism. After that, we will analyst the theatre plays chosen right because were created from an artistic research about tragic and we will have with objective investigate how yours creators understand that resumption of the tragic and how they talk with the theorists studied. The contemporary plays chosen for the analyze are: Tragedia Endogonidia, one series of theater episodes realized by the group Socìetas Rafaello Sanzio (2002-2004), and the play Mantenha Fora do Alcance de Crianças, written in collaborative process with the collective [PH²] - estado de teatro (2009).

Les dispositifs corporels sur la scène contemporaine traitant de l’irreprésentable / The bodily dispositifs in the contemporary theatre performance on the unrepresentable

Mok, Jungweon 08 December 2017 (has links)
Cette thèse a pour objet les dispositifs corporels sur la scène contemporaine traitant de l’irreprésentable. En effet, parmi les artistes contemporains, nombreux sont ceux qui reconnaissent que la représentation théâtrale ne peut saisir le réel de son objet, parce que ce réel est comme un traumatisme qui ne peut être réduit à la langue, ni traduit par elle. Cette notion esthétique de l’irreprésentable, qui recouvre un large champ d’expériences et de pratiques artistiques, sera donc étudiée ici à partir d’événements traumatiques. L’hypothèse essentielle est que l’irreprésentable en tant que traumatisme se rapporte intimement au corps. Renonçant à l’ambition de représenter l’irreprésentable, certains artistes créent et disposent divers dispositifs représentatifs qui s’avèrent corporels. Ils souhaitent que ceux-ci puissent toucher le corps des spectateurs et enclenchent une irruption du réel, pour que chaque spectateur puisse rencontrer son propre réel irreprésentable. La thèse vise d’abord à éclaircir les concepts cruciaux – l’irreprésentable, le dispositif (contrôle foucaldien et pulsion lyotardienne), le théâtre contemporain, le dispositif représentatif et artistique – puis à analyser le travail de trois metteurs en scène – Kim Hyuntak, Romeo Castellucci, Angélica Liddell – en interrogeant, pour chacun, le thème de l’irreprésentable, les dispositifs corporels qu’il conçoit, et sa manière d’interpeller des spectateurs / This dissertation examines the bodily “dispositifs” in the contemporary theatre performances that explore the concept of the “unrepresentable”. Many contemporary artists acknowledge that theatrical representation cannot grasp the Real of its object, because the Real is, as Lacan has argued, equivalent to the trauma that cannot be reduced to, or translated into, language. Therefore, this study considers the aesthetic notion of the unrepresentable, which encompasses a wide range of artistic experiences and practices, from the position of trauma. The central assumption is that the unrepresentable as trauma is intimately related to the body. Renouncing the ambition to represent the unrepresentable, some artists create and place various representative dispositifs that are corporeal in nature. Through the use of such dispositifs, they attempt to touch the bodies of the spectators and trigger an irruption of the Real, so that each spectator can meet one's own Real. This thesis begins by clarifying the crucial concepts—the unrepresentable, the dispositif (Foucault’s control and Lyotard’s drive), the contemporary theater, the representative and artistic dispositif—and proceeds to analyze the works of three directors—Kim Hyuntak, Romeo Castellucci, Angelica Liddell—by investigating the theme of the unrepresentable, the bodily dispositifs that they have conceived, and their ways of affecting spectators.

Projecting Presence: Creating an "Effet de Présence" for Virtual Characters

Ahluwalia, Kyle 16 January 2014 (has links)
Given the expansion of multimedia technology and proliferation of moving projections on the theatre stage in the 21st century, this thesis examines how a virtual or projected character can appear to be present without a physical body on the stage. This study is grounded in the theories of effet de présence (effect of presence) as elaborated by Josette Féral, but also uses other theories to look at how productions can create such an effect for virtual characters. Specifically, this thesis examines the character’s relationship with the real, framing devices and actions of the characters. The specific examples of Rwanda 94 (Groupov), La Belle et la Bête (4D Art) and Les Aveugles (UBU CC) are used as case studies in order to focus on these techniques. Partant de l’intégration des nouvelles technologies et la prolifération des projections vidéo au sein des scènes théâtrales du 21e siècle, cette thèse examine les techniques par lesquel les personnages projeté peut sembler présent en l’absence d’un corps physique visible. Cette réflexion est basée sur l’effet de présence, concept élaboré par Josette Féral, ainsi que d’autres théories et examine comment un effet de présence est constitué pour ces personnages virtuels en considérant leur relation au réel (mimesis), les dispositifs de cadrage dans lesquels ils s’inscrivent de même que leurs actions. Cette analyse sera menée à porter de avec trois étudies de cas : Rwanda 94 (Groupov), La Belle et la Bête (4D Art) et Les Aveugles (UBU CC).

Culture, memory, and space on stage : the construction of female Hakka contemporary theatre in Taiwan

Hu, Tzu-Yun January 2012 (has links)
Theatre is a location of cultures, the reflection of our daily lives, the present moment we are living. This thesis focuses on studying performances of the Hakka Contemporary Theatre created by female directors (Hakka and Non-Hakka) in Taiwan to observe how they combine western modern theatre forms with Hakka traditional and cultural elements and further transformed the specifics of Hakka culture on stage and represented various images of Hakka women. Through applying theories in relation to diaspora discourse, the hybridity of post-colonialism and postcolonial feminism and theatre study as the foundation of academic research, I attempted to critically examine the hybrid forms and development of the Hakka Contemporary Theatre to explore in depth the meaning of Hakka culture represented in theatre. In this thesis, I firstly offer performance analysis and draw on hybridity discourse and feminism in relation to post-colonial study to discuss three elements: the interaction and negotiated relationship between Hakka women (including female directors and the Hakka actresses), Hakka culture, and modern theatre forms. Furthermore, as part of my research, I critically reflect upon a practical performance project I have undertaken to illustrate how Hakka culture could be presented as subject and be constructed as the subjectivity of the Hakka ethnic group in post-colonial Taiwan. I hope that this thesis may encourage more Taiwanese to appreciate the value of Hakka culture and offer Taiwanese theatrical practitioners a practice of critical hybridity in associating ethnic and cultural issues of Taiwan in the future.

Au prisme du cinéma. Impressions cinématographiques chez le spectateur de théâtre du XXIème siècle / Theatre Through the Prism of Film. Cinematographic Impressions of the Spectator in the 21st Century

Bosc, Cécile 13 January 2017 (has links)
Certains spectacles, alors même qu’ils n’utilisent aucun matériel ni aucune technique cinématographiques (écran, caméra, images filmées), donnent au spectateur une impression de cinéma. Ils réveillent chez le spectateur une mémoire cinématographique qui tout en étant individuelle, appartient à une culture commune. Parce qu’il constitue un patrimoine commun, le cinéma est un moyen pour le spectateur d’exprimer l’expérience qu’il fait d’un spectacle. Notre idée étant que la présence du cinéma au théâtre dépasse la question de la composition de l’œuvre elle-même et qu’elle s’exerce aussi par le regard de ceux qui le reçoivent. Le cinéma du théâtre auquel nous nous intéressons est un cinéma « intérieur », formé de réminiscences suscitées par des spectacles qui portent en eux les traces d'un cinéma parfois oublié, toujours assimilé, incorporé. Ces « impressions » qui forment le cœur de notre travail résultent donc d’une double pratique de spectateur de théâtre et de cinéma chez ceux qui créent le spectacle et chez ceux qui le reçoivent. Nous proposons d’envisager l’intermédialité au théâtre au sein du spectateur et de sa mémoire, du simple fait que le spectateur de théâtre, est a priori un spectateur d’autres arts et que ses habitudes de perception esthétique se construisent par le biais de plusieurs pratiques. La notion d’impression permet de penser le rapport entre l’œuvre théâtrale et le spectateur. De la réception à l’analyse, l’impression liée au caractère intuitif de la perception et à son ancrage affectif joue un rôle essentiel dans l’élaboration de la pensée. Il s’agit de faire de l’impression un terrain de recherche et de s’en emparer avec ce qu’elle comporte de subjectivité, d’intuition et nécessairement d’approximation. Plutôt que de contourner la subjectivité souvent perçue comme un écueil, pourtant inhérent à l’analyse, il s’agira d’en faire un objet d’étude. L’enjeu sera de comprendre comment le cinéma en tant que culture visuelle et sonore, en tant que pratique façonnant des habitudes de réception, des discours, des réflexions critiques, des courants de pensée peut influencer le théâtre contemporain français notamment par le regard qu’on lui porte. / Certain theatre performances, even if using neither cinematographic material nor techniques nevertheless give the spectator an “impression of the cinema”. They create patterns of perception that films have accustomed us to and solicit a cinematographic memory in the spectator. Even if this is wholly individual, it still belongs to a common culture. Moreover, it takes place through the process of interpretation. For example, the spectator in discussing a theatrical performance borrows from the technical and artistic imaginary of a vocabulary unique to the cinema. These “impressions” form the core of the following work and are the result of a viewing practice that is at once theatrical and cinematic.Impressions play a central role in the elaboration of thought and are connected to the intuitive character of perception and its emotional foundations. What has been made into an object of study in the following work is the very subjectivity that is most often avoided as a stumbling block to interpretation even if it is inherent in any mode of analysis. The following work will make an effort grasp what the passing of cinema in contemporary theatre allows us to say about the latter. It will do this through an analysis of a sample of current representative theatrical works and how the spectator’s speech is produced through them and in relation to the cinema. Several contemporary theatrical productions will be at the centre of this study: Salves de Maguy Marin, Les Marchands of Joël Pommerat, Ricercar de François Tanguy or This is how you will disappear by Gisèle Vienne.
