Summary: Post-Colonial Drama is the first full-length study to address the ways in which performance has been instrumental in resisting the continuing effects of imperialism. It brings to bear the latest theoretical approaches from post-colonial and performance studies to a range of plays from Australia, Africa, Canada, New Zealand, the Caribbean and other former colonial regions. Some of the major topics discussed in Post-Colonial Drama include: * the interactions of post-colonial and performance theories * the post-colonial re-stagings of language and history * the specific enactments of ritual and carnival * the theatrical citations of the post-colonial body Post-Colonial Drama combines a rich intersection of theoretical approaches with close attention to a wide range of performance texts.

National Performance Book by Erin Hurley

National Performance Book
  • Author : Erin Hurley
  • Publisher : University of Toronto Press
  • Release Date : 2011-01-01
  • Category: Performing Arts
  • Pages : 264
  • ISBN Code: 1442660171

Summary: In National Performance, Erin Hurley examines the complex relationship between performance and national identity. How do theatrical performances represent the nation in which they were created? How is Quebecois performance used to define Quebec as a nation and to cultivate a sense of 'Quebec-ness' for audiences both within and outside the province? In exploring Expo 67, the critical response to Michel Tremblay's Les Belles Soeurs, Carbone 14's image-theatre, Marco Micone's writing practices, Celine Dion's popular music, and feminist performance of the 1970s and 80s, Hurley reveals the ways in which certain performances come to be understood as 'national' while others are relegated to sub-national or outsider status. Each chapter focuses on a particular historical moment in Quebec's modern history and a genre of performance emblematic of the moment, and uses these to elaborate the nature of the national performances. Winner of the Northeast Modern Language Association's Book Prize, National Performance is sophisticated yet accessible, seeking to enlarge the parameters of what counts as 'Quebecois' performance, while providing a thorough introduction to changing discourses of nation-ness in Quebec.

Masculinities in Twentieth- and Twenty-first Century French and Francophone Literature Book by Edith Biegler Vandervoort

Masculinities in Twentieth- and Twenty-first Century French and Francophone Literature Book
  • Author : Edith Biegler Vandervoort
  • Publisher : Cambridge Scholars Publishing
  • Release Date : 2011-05-25
  • Category: Social Science
  • Pages : 345
  • ISBN Code: 1443830569

Summary: The study of masculinities and gender identity in contemporary literature is relatively new and, with each year of this millennium, gains momentum. Indeed, as the women’s movement becomes forceful in developing nations, the question of tolerance to gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transvestites undergoes a similar process. At a time when women refuse to be subjected to war crimes, when they begin entering the workforce and realize the need to support their families independently, and when they refuse to remain in abusive marriages or remain silent in countries, where governments ignore their needs, men and women are questioning the meaning of gender in their culture and often seek alternatives to established gender roles. In some countries, this entails organized demonstrations for additional civil rights, while in others, the expression of sexual freedom remains a question of remaining silent or risking public execution. Thanks to the scholarly commitment of its authors, this book examines the range of masculine expression on three continents: Europe, Africa, and the Americas. In this collection, they write about men’s past and present challenges, male friendships, and male immigrants and outcasts. Paralleling the independence movement of France’s former colonies, the goal of this collection is to continue the expression of freedom toward understanding and tolerance of all variances of sexuality.

  • Release Date : 2012-12-15
  • Category: Language Arts & Disciplines
  • Pages : 300
  • ISBN Code: 0888647069

Summary: Translation is tricky business. The translator has to transform the foreign to the familiar while moving and pleasing his or her audience. Louise Ladouceur knows theatre from a multi-dimensional perspective that gives her research a particular authority as she moves between two of the dominant cultures of Canada: French and English. Through the analysis of six plays from each linguistic repertoire, written and translated between 1961 and 2000, her award-winning book compares the complexities of a translation process shaped by the power struggle between Canada's two official languages. The winner of the Prix Gabrielle-Roy and the Ann Saddlemyer Book Award, Dramatic Licence addresses issues important to scholars and students of Translation Studies, Canadian Literature and Theatre Studies, as well as theatre practitioners and translators. The University of Alberta Press acknowledges the financial support of the Government of Canada, through the National Translation Program for Book Publishing, for our translation activities.

Moving Target Book by Carole-Ann Upton

Moving Target Book
  • Author : Carole-Ann Upton
  • Publisher : Routledge
  • Release Date : 2014-07-22
  • Category: Language Arts & Disciplines
  • Pages : 4
  • ISBN Code: 1317641442

Summary: Moving Target offers a rigorous exploration of the practice of translating for the theatre. The twelve essays in the volume span a range of work from Eastern and Western Europe, Canada and the United States. For the first time, this book draws together existing translation theory with contemporary practice to shed light on a hitherto neglected aspect of the production process. How does the theatre translator mediate between source text, performance text and target audience? What happens when theatre is transposed from one culture to another? What are the obstacles to theatre translation, and what are the opportunities? Central to the debate throughout is the role of the translator in creating not only a linguistic text but also a performance text, as the contributors repeatedly demonstrate an illuminating sensibility to the demands and potential of theatre production. Impacting upon areas of (inter)cultural theory as well as theatre studies and translation studies, the result is a startling revelation of the joys, as well as the frustrations of the dramatic art of the translator for performance.

Code-Choice and Identity Construction on Stage Book by Sirkku Aaltonen

Code-Choice and Identity Construction on Stage Book
  • Author : Sirkku Aaltonen
  • Publisher : Routledge
  • Release Date : 2020-07-15
  • Category: Performing Arts
  • Pages : 190
  • ISBN Code: 1351613685

Summary: Code-Choice and Identity Construction on Stage challenges the general assumption that language is only one of the codes employed in a theatrical performance; Sirkku Aaltonen changes the perspective to the audience, foregrounding the chosen language variety as a trigger for their reactions. Theatre is ‘the most public of arts’, closely interwoven with contemporary society, and language is a crucial tool for establishing order. In this book, Aaltonen explores the ways in which chosen languages on stage can lead to rejection or tolerance in diglossic situations, where one language is considered unequal to another. Through a selection of carefully chosen case studies, the socio-political rather than artistic motivation behind code-choice emerges. By identifying common features of these contexts and the implications of theatre in the wider world, this book sheds light on high versus low culture, the role of translation, and the significance of traditional and emerging theatrical conventions. This intriguing study encompassing Ireland, Scotland, Quebec, Finland and Egypt, cleverly employs the perspective of familiarising the foreign and is invaluable reading for those interested in theatre and performance, translation, and the connection between language and society.

Summary: Le Québec moderne n’a jamais réellement habité la ville ; ou alors il n’a jamais habité la ville réelle. Peu importe, car cela ne l’a pas empêché d’en parler plus que de tout autre espace. Dans ce livre, je veux mesurer les conséquences de cette contradiction. Je veux chercher à lire la ville contemporaine au Québec, celle dont hérite le jeune xxi e siècle... Mais si on souhaite poursuivre ici, il faudra accepter d’abandonner le mot “ville” en chemin. C’est l’urbanisation et la littérature qu’il faudra aborder comme deux choses interdépendantes depuis les années 1960 au Québec. L’urbanisation et la ville ne sont pas la même chose du tout. La première est un processus, la seconde est son résultat. L’urbanisation est vivante et mobile alors que la ville est morte, ou en tout cas figée, abstraite. Bref, l’une existe, et l’autre pas. Il y a là un problème considérable. Dans ce livre, je parle d’étalement, de zonage, de friches, de banlieues, de chantiers et d’infrastructures — de ces espaces périurbains, depuis longtemps majoritaires dans le paysage nord-américain. J’en parle comme des lieux où la vie devrait pouvoir accéder à l’art. Et plus spécifiquement à l’art littéraire.

Summary: First published in 1990, The Encyclopedia of Homosexuality brings together a collection of outstanding articles that were, at the time of this book’s original publication, classic, pioneering, and recent. Together, the two volumes provide scholarship on male and female homosexuality and bisexuality, and, reaching beyond questions of physical sexuality, they examine the effects of homophilia and homophobia on literature, art, religion, science, law, philosophy, society, and history. Many of the writings were considered to be controversial, and often contradictory, at that time, and refer to issues and difficulties that still exist today. This volume contains entries from M-Z.

Lieu d'expression de nos perceptions de la condition humaine et de l'expérience qu'en a la communauté mondiale, le théâtre est l'un des sanctuaires de toute mémoire nationale. Et les 450 artistes entrés au nouveau « dico » sont les relais de cette mémoire. » Jean St-Hilaire, Le Soleil « Publier ce dictionnaire est presque un acte de résistance, qui permettra sans doute la réalisation de projets de plus grande envergure dans un avenir rapproché. ***» Philippe Couture, Voir (Montréal) « Une oeuvre colossale, fondamentale et indispensable. » Marthe Lemery, Le Droit (Ottawa)
