Physical Dramaturgy

What is physical dramaturgy? While the traditional dramaturg shares research intellectually, the physical dramaturg does so viscerally and somatically. By combining elements of text, history, dramatic structure, and the author’s intent with movement analysis and physical theatre pedagogies, the physical dramaturg gives actors the opportunity to manifest their work in a connected and intuitive manner and creates a field that is as varied and rich as the theatre itself. Physical Dramaturgy: Perspectives from the Field explores the ways in which this unique role can benefit the production team during the design and rehearsal phases of both traditional and devised productions. Individual chapters look at new ways of approaching a wealth of physical worlds, from the works of Shakespeare and other period playwrights to the processes of Grotowski, Williamson, Schechner, Michael Chekhov, and devising original works in a variety of contexts from Pig Iron, Dell’arte Players, Bill Bowers and mime, Tectonic, and Liz Lerman’s Dance Exchange. This anthology gives dramaturgs, actors, and directors, new ways of looking at existing methods and provides examples of how to translate, combine, and adapt them into new explorations for training, rehearsal, or research.

In Strategies for Success in Musical Theatre, veteran musical director and teacher Herbert Marshall provides an essential how-to guide for teachers or community members who find themselves in charge of music directing a show. Stepping off the podium, Marshall offers practical and often humorous real-world advice on managing auditions; organizing rehearsals; working with a choir, choreographer, and leads; how to run a sitzprobe, a technical rehearsal, and a dress rehearsal; how to manage the cast and crew energy for a successful opening night; and ways to end the experience on a high note for all involved. Throughout the book, Marshall emphasizes the importance of learning through performance and the beauty of a group united in a common goal. In doing so, he turns what can appear as a never-ending list of tasks and demand for specialized knowledge into a manageable, educational, and ultimately engaging and fun experience for all. Because the techniques in Marshall's book have been thoroughly workshopped and classroom tested, they are based in proven pedagogy and will be of particular use for the music director in acting as a teaching director: someone imparting theatrical knowledge to his or her cast and production staff. Marshall provides both extended and abbreviated timelines, flexible to fit any director's needs. Marshall's book is a greatly beneficial resource for music education students and teachers alike, giving an insightful glimpse into the range of possibilities within a music educator's career. Musicians and actors with varying levels of skill and experience will be able to grow simultaneously through Marshall's innovative teaching plans. Through collaborative techniques, steps in the book serve to educate both director and student. Thoroughly illustrated with charts, diagrams, and scores, Strategies for Success in Musical Theatre is an ideal companion for all who work with school and community based musical theater productions.

Ein Lidschlag. Ein Schnitt. ist ein lebendiger, vielschichtiger und anregender Essay des gefeierten Film-Cutters Walter Murch über Filmschnitt und beginnt mit der grundlegenden Frage: Warum funktionieren Schnitte?

Aus Erfahrung spricht er über Themen wie Kontinuität und Diskontinuität beim Schneiden; Traum und Wirklichkeit; Kriterien für einen guten Schnitt; den Lidschlag als emotionaler Schnitt; den digitalen Schnitt und vieles mehr. >Dies ist kein Lehrbuch über die Technik des Schneidens. Es beschäftigt sich mit den künstlerischen - und einigen technischen - Gründen, warum ich bestimmte Dinge tue und - basierend auf meiner Erfahrung - wie ich das meiste aus dem Prozeß des kreativen Schneidens heraushole.

Die Heerscharen Persiens - eine Streitmacht, so gewaltig, dass die Erde unter ihren Schritten erzittert - stehen bereit, Griechenland zu vernichten, eine Insel der Vernunft und der Freiheit inmitten eines Ozeans aus alter Mystik und Tyrannei. Zwischen Griechenland und dieser Flutwelle der Zerstörung steht nur eine kleine Truppe von gerade einmal 300 Kriegern. Doch diese Krieger sind mehr als nur einfache Männer - Es sind SPARTANER! Die gefeierte Neuinterpretation der Schlacht bei den Thermopylen gilt als eine der besten Arbeiten der Comiclegende Frank Miller (SIN CITY) und wurde mit drei EISNER Awards ausgezeichnet. 2007 lieferte Regie-Neuling Zach Snyder die kongeniale visuelle Umsetzung des Comic-Stoffs und katapultierte sich mit dem stilprägenden Fantasy-Schlachtgemälde in die A-Liga Hollywoods. 2009 setzte er nach und adaptierte die als unverfilmbar gehandelte Graphic Novel WATCHMEN von Alan Moore.

The Oxford Handbook of The American Musical offers new and cutting-edge essays on the most important and compelling issues and topics in the growing, interdisciplinary field of musical-theater and film-musical studies. Taking the form of a "keywords" book, it introduces readers to the concepts and terms that define the history of the musical as a genre and that offer ways to reflect on the specific creative choices that shape musicals and their performance on stage and screen. The handbook offers a cross-section of essays written by leading experts in the field, organized within broad conceptual groups, which together capture the breadth, direction, and tone of musicals studies today. Each essay traces the genealogy of the term or issue it addresses, including related issues and controversies, positions and problematizes those issues within larger bodies of scholarship, and provides specific examples drawn from shows and films. Essays both re-examine traditional topics and introduce underexplored areas. Reflecting the concerns of scholars and students alike, the authors emphasize critical and accessible perspectives, and supplement theory with concrete examples that may be accessed through links to the handbook's website. Taking into account issues of composition, performance, and reception, the book's contributors bring a wide range of practical and theoretical perspectives to bear on their considerations of one of America's most lively, enduring artistic traditions. The Oxford Handbook of The American Musical will engage all readers interested in the form, from students to scholars to fans and aficionados, as it analyses the complex relationships among the creators, performers, and audiences who sustain the genre.
