Directing Shakespeare Book Description

by Sidney Homan, Directing Shakespeare Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Directing Shakespeare books, "Professor Homan recounts the experience of staging King Lear accompanied by a musical score for piano, violin, and cello played live onstage. He discusses the challenge of making and trying to justify cuts in Hamlet. The chapter on The Comedy of Errors shows the ways in which scholarly and critical writings can contribute to a director's decisions on everything from casting to acting styles. A casual remark from an actress leads to a feminist production of a Midsummer Night's Dream. He describes the delicate collaboration between director and performer as he works with actors preparing for The Merchant of Venice, King Lear, and Hamlet. Other chapters treat a set designer's bold red drapes that influenced the director's concept for Julius Caesar, and the cross-influence of back-to-back runs of Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead and Hamlet."--BOOK JACKET.

Directing Shakespeare In America Book Description

by Charles Ney, Directing Shakespeare In America Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Directing Shakespeare In America books, In this first substantive study of directing Shakespeare in the USA, Charles Ney compares and contrasts directors working at major companies across the country. Because of the complexities of directing Shakespeare for audiences today, a director's methods, values and biases are more readily perceptible in their work on Shakespeare than in more contemporary work. Directors disclose their interpretation of the text, their management of the various stages of production, how they go about supervising rehearsals and share tactics. This book will be useful to students wanting to develop skills, practitioners who want to learn from what other directors are doing, and scholars and students studying production practice and performance.

On Directing considers the position of the director in theater and performance today. What is a director? How do they begin work on a play or performance? What methods are used in rehearsal?

Taking Stage Book Description

by Helen Manfull, Taking Stage Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Taking Stage books, 'A celebration of the craft of thirteen of the UK and Ireland''s top women theatre directors. Taking Stage follows the careers and approaches of thirteen women directors who have risen to the top of their profession in the British and Irish theatre. The various stories told here in candid interviews show just how hard the path and journey has been for women ambitious to have a career in what has always been a male preserve. They talk about their own working methods and their most celebrated productions from preparation, to working on a text, to casting decisions, rehearsals, defining space and learning to take charge. We learn about their influences, their network of support and the mutual respect each of these women has for the other. I recommend this book to anyone, male or female, who wants to know what it''s like to be a director. ''These women speak candidly about the perils and pleasures of their own lives and along the way give us pointers towards a different kind of future'' (Genista McIntosh, Executive Director, Royal National Theatre)'

Changing Styles In Shakespeare Book Description

by Ralph Berry, Changing Styles In Shakespeare Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Changing Styles In Shakespeare books, First published in 1981. Each of Shakespeare's plays is in a continuous state of development in performance. This book examines major changes whilst focusing on six plays in detail: Coriolanus, Measure for Measure, Troilus and Cressida, Henry V, Hamlet and Twelfth Night. Changing Styles in Shakespeare looks at representative and key productions to trace the evolution of each play on today's stage, illustrating how production changes relate to a changed perception of the play, and thus to shifts in social attitudes. It singles out the salient features of many productions, paying special attention to reviews and prompt books.
