A Director Prepares

A Director Prepares Seven Essays On Art In Theatre [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Director Prepares by Anne Bogart Book Summary:

A Director Prepares is a thought-provoking examination of the challenges of making theatre. In it, Anne Bogart speaks candidly and with wisdom of the courage required to create 'art with great presence'. Each chapter tackles one of the seven major areas Bogart has identified as both potential partner and potential obstacle to art-making. They are Violence; Memory; Terror; Eroticism; Stereotype; Embarrassment; and Resistance. Each one can be used to generate extraordinary creative energy, if we know how to use it. A Director Prepares offers every practitioner an extraordinary insight into the creative process. It is a handbook, Bible and manifesto, all in one. No other book on the art of theatre comes even close to offering this much understanding, experience and inspiration.

Art, Vision, and Nineteenth-Century Realist Drama

A Director Prepares Seven Essays On Art In Theatre [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Art, Vision, and Nineteenth-Century Realist Drama by Amy Holzapfel Book Summary:

Realism in theatre is traditionally defined as a mere seed of modernism, a crude attempt to reproduce an exact copy of reality on stage. Art, Vision & Nineteenth-Century Realist Drama redefines realism as a complex and under-examined form of visual modernism, one that positioned theatre at the crux of the encounter between consciousness and the visible world. Tracing a historical continuum of "acts of seeing" on the realist stage, Holzapfel demonstrates how theatre participated in modernity’s aggressive interrogation of vision’s residence in the human body. New findings by scientists and philosophers—such as Diderot, Goethe, Müller, Helmholtz, and Galton—exposed how the visible world is experienced and framed by the unstable relativism of the physiological body rather than the fixed idealism of the mind. Realist artists across media paradoxically embraced this paradigm shift by focusing on the embodied observer. Drawing from extensive archival research, Holzapfel conducts close readings of iconic dramas and their productions—including Scribe’s The Glass of Water, Zola’s Thérèse Raquin, Ibsen’s A Doll House, Strindberg’s The Father, and Hauptmann’s Before Sunrise—alongside analyses of artwork by major painters and photographers—such as Chardin, Nadar, Millais, Rejlander, and Liebermann. In a radical challenge to existing criticism, Holzapfel argues that realism in theatre was never the attempt to reproduce an exact copy of the seen world but rather the struggle to make visible the act of seeing.

Play Directing

A Director Prepares Seven Essays On Art In Theatre [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Play Directing by Francis Hodge,Michael McLain Book Summary:

"Play Directing, Sixth Edition" describes the various roles a director plays, from selection and analysis of the play to working with actors and designers to bring it to life. The authors emphasize that the role of the director is not as a dictator, but as a leader of artists working in collaboration who look to the director for ideas that will give impetus to their fullest, most creative expressions. The text emphasizes that directing is not a finite and specific "system" of production, but rather is a means for providing an intensive look at the structure of plays, of acting and actor-ownership, and of all the other crafts that together make a produced play. New to This Edition Features new author Michael McLain, a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles and founding Artistic Associate and Literary Director of the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles, who brings a fresh new voice to "Play Directing, Sixth Edition" while retaining the point of view and fundamentals that have made the text a success in its earlier editions. Adds new chapters on working with actors (Chapter 16) and on the director and the dramaturg (Appendix 2), as well as new material on the director in opera, offering a wealth of new information on the director's role. Revises many exercises for increased focus on points discussed in the text, expanding the opportunities for practical application. Includes an expanded bibliography with an updated survey of a diverse range of works related to directing, providing students with valuable guidelines to further study.

Le Temps scellé

A Director Prepares Seven Essays On Art In Theatre [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Le Temps scellé by Andrei arsenievitch Tarkovski Book Summary:

"« Il n’est pas dans mon intention de faire ici la leçon à qui que ce soit, ni d’imposer un point de vue. Ce livre n’a été dicté que par le désir de défricher la jungle des possibilités qui s’offrent à un art encore jeune et magnifique, toujours à explorer, et de m’y retrouver moi-même aussi indépendant et libre que possible. » Andreï Tarkovski, tout au long de son œuvre cinématographique, rédige des notes de travail, des réflexions sur son art, restituant dans le même mouvement son itinéraire d’homme et d’artiste. À partir de son exil en Italie où il réalise Nostalghia en 1983, puis en France durant la dernière année de sa vie, il rassemble ces écrits qui sont d’abord édités en Allemagne puis dans les autres pays d’Europe occidentale où ils deviendront vite une référence incontournable. Il y aborde une large réflexion aussi bien sur la civilisation contemporaine que sur l’art cinématographique : son ontologie et sa place parmi les autres arts, ou des aspects plus concrets comme le scénario, le montage, l’acteur, le son, la musique, la lumière, le cadrage... Puisant dans son expérience de cinéaste, dans sa vaste culture littéraire, se remémorant ses années de formation, les luttes interminables pour terminer ses films à l’époque soviétique, Andreï Tarkovski offre ici le livre-bilan d’un artiste en recherche de sens, d’un homme qui consacra son inépuisable énergie à « fixer le temps »...

The Director as Collaborator

A Director Prepares Seven Essays On Art In Theatre [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Director as Collaborator by Robert Knopf Book Summary:

"The Director as Collaborator" teaches essential directing skills while emphasizing how directors and theatre productions benefit from collaboration. Good collaboration occurs when the director shares responsibility for the artistic creation with the entire production, including actors, designers, stage managers and technical staff. Leadership does not preclude collaboration; in theatre, these concepts can and should be complementary. Students will develop their abilities by directing short scenes and plays and by participating in group exercises. FeaturesActive learning exercises throughout the text encourage students to learn through firsthand experience. A chapter on directing elements, organized into textual and visceral elements, introduces students to the fundamental building blocks that help directors achieve their unique artistic interpretations. Notes on collaboration by designers, playwrights, actors, and music directors provide students with real-world feedback on the importance of collaboration for a theatre production. A full chapter on working with designers, with case studies and photos, helps students develop the skills necessary to form collaborative relationships with designers on future productions (Chapter 5). In-class writing exercises help students explore their ideas and develop communication skills. Discussion questions and key terms after each exercise help students solidify their knowledge and acquire the terminology that professionals use. Appendices with forms for auditions, rehearsals, and productions; a glossary; and a comprehensive list of one-act play anthologies provide additional resources for assignments, projects, and productions.Praise for "The Director as Collaborator" "This is a well-thought-out book that has a new and exciting approach to the field of theater directing. The concept of collaboration is an important (and oft-ignored) part of the directing process. There are stunning nuggets of wisdom within this text that drive the text forward -- it's the director's job to be an idealist, and this work chooses to show how this idealism can be fore-grounded and made a significant part of the process." --"Christopher Berchild, Indiana State University" "This is a very readable book, written in an easy, conversational style using personal experiences and well-defined examples. I think that this is an excellent text for beginning directors of any age. Because of his teaching and directing style, one feels that the author is sitting across the production table having a conversation with a group of friends." --"Margaret Brennan, Harrisburg Area Community College"
