National Theatre Playscripts: Home (Paperback): Nadia Fall National Theatre Playscripts: Home (Paperback)
Nadia Fall
R389 Discovery Miles 3 890 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

Working in partnership with the National Theatre, these new playscripts bring the theatre alive in the classroom. Each play has been carefully selected to ensure maximum impact and relevance to students, while the activities and teaching support are underpinned by National Theatre strategies so that teachers can feel confident using these approaches. Vibrant production images and the 'Making the play' section show how the play is brought to life on stage while the activities combine a focus on English skills with the play as a perfomance. What does it mean to have a home? What makes a home home? In this verbatim play, Nadia Fall combines real testimonials with song and music to bring to life the often unheard voices of those people who have nowhere to call home. Focusing on a hostel in inner-city London, Fall introduces the people who are living there and through them explores one of the most pressing contemporary social issues, homelessness amongst young people.

Performance Perspectives - A Critical Introduction (Paperback): J. Pitches, Sita Popat Performance Perspectives - A Critical Introduction (Paperback)
J. Pitches, Sita Popat
R814 Discovery Miles 8 140 Ships in 7 - 11 work days

What is 'performance'? What are the boundaries of Performance Studies? How do we talk about contemporary performance practices today in simple but probing terms? What kinds of practices represent the field and how can we interpret them?
Combining the voices of academics, artists, cultural critics and teachers, "Performance Perspectives" answers these questions and provides a critical introduction to Performance Studies. Presenting an accessible way into key terminology and context, it offers a new model for analyzing contemporary performance based on six frames or perspectives:

  • Body
  • Space
  • Time
  • Technology
  • Interactivity
  • Organization

Drawing on examples from a wide range of practices across site specific performance, virtual reality, dance, applied theatre and everyday performance, "Performance Perspectives" addresses the binary of theory and practice and highlights the many meeting points between studio and seminar room. Each chapter takes the innovative form of a three-way conversation, bringing together theoretical introductions with artist interviews and practitioner statements. The book is supported by activities for discussion and practical devising work, as well as clear guidance for further reading and an extensive reference list across media
"Performance Perspectives" is essential reading for anyone studying, interpreting or making performance.

Zhou Long
R1,057 Discovery Miles 10 570 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

This opera in four acts is based on an ancient Chinese myth about a snake-shaped spirit that attains human form to experience love. The English libretto by Cerise Lim Jacobs sensitively adapts the story for modern audiences, and Zhou Long's music uses both Western and Chinese sounds to create a pioneering cross-cultural opera. Long was awarded the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Music for Madame White Snake, and the Pulitzer jury described the work as "a deeply expressive opera that draws on a Chinese folk tale to blend the musical traditions of the East and the West." Madame White Snake was first staged by Opera Boston on 26 February 2010 at the Culter Majestic Theatre, Boston, USA, and received its first Chinese staging at the Beijing International Festival on 10 October 2010, Beijing, China.

Antigone and other Tragedies - Antigone, Deianeira, Electra (Paperback): Sophocles Antigone and other Tragedies - Antigone, Deianeira, Electra (Paperback)
Sophocles; Edited by Oliver Taplin
R146 R125 Discovery Miles 1 250 Save R21 (14%) Ships in 10 - 20 work days

Sophocles stands as one of the greatest dramatists of all time, and one of the most influential on artists and thinkers over the centuries. His plays are deeply disturbing and unpredictable, unrelenting and open-ended, refusing to present firm answers to the questions of human existence, or to provide a redemptive justification of the ways of gods to men or women. These three tragedies portray the extremes of human suffering and emotion, turning the heroic myths into supreme works of poetry and dramatic action. Antigone's obsession with the dead, Creon's crushing inflexibility, Deianeira's jealous desperation, the injustice of the gods witnessed by Hyllus, Electra's obsessive vindictiveness, the threatening of insoluble dynastic contamination... Such are the pains and distortions and instabilities of Sophoclean tragedy. And yet they do not deteriorate into cacophony or disgust or incoherence or silence: they face the music, and through that the suffering is itself turned into the coherence of music and poetry. These original and distinctive verse translations convey the vitality of Sophocles' poetry and the vigour of the plays in performance, doing justice to both the sound of the poetry and the theatricality of the tragedies. Each play is accompanied by an introduction and substantial notes on topographical and mythical references and interpretation.
