भारतीय राजनीति-विचारक: Scenes From Life In The Country (Beihefte Zur Zeitschrift Für Romanische Philologie Ser. #115)

by नेशनल पेपरबैक्स ओम् गाबा

भारतीय राजनीति-चिंतन की परंपरा पश्चिमी परंपरा से भी पुरानी है, और इसमें बहुत सारे ओजस्वी विचार भरे हैं। परंतु इसके अध्ययन को यथोचित महत्त्व नहीं मिल पाया है। देखा जाए तो आधुनिक युग में पश्चिमी सभ्यता के अभ्युदय के कारण साधारणतः पाश्चात्य राजनीति-चिंतन को ही भूमंडलीय बौद्धिक परंपरा के प्रतिनिधि के रूप में प्रस्तुत किया गया है; भारतीय राजनीति-चिंतन को छिटपुट अध्ययन का विषय बना कर छोड़ दिया गया है। वस्तुतः भारतीय चिंतन की प्राचीन, मध्ययुगीन और आधुनिक धाराओं में राजनीति की बहुत सारी समस्याओं पर इतने सुलझे हुए विचार व्यक्त किए गए हैं जो भूमंडलीय बौद्धिक परंपरा का महत्त्वपूर्ण अंग बनने की क्षमता रखते हैं, परंतु मुख्यतः हमारी उदासीनता के कारण इस क्षमता को सार्थक करने का विशेष प्रयत्न नहीं हुआ है। ‘भारतीय राजनीति-विचारक’ का प्रस्तुत संस्करण पिछले सब संस्करणों का उन्नत रूप है। आशा है, इस रूप में प्रस्तुत कृति अपने पाठक-वर्ग को न केवल भारतीय राजनीति-चिंतन की समृद्ध परंपरा से परिचित कराएगी बल्कि उन्हें मानव-समाज की समस्याओं के बारे में स्वयं चिंतन करने की प्रेरणा देगी।

Code-Choice and Identity Construction on Stage: Code-choice in Identity Construction on Stage (Routledge Advances in Theatre & Performance Studies)

by Sirkku Aaltonen

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.

Rewriting Narratives in Egyptian Theatre: Translation, Performance, Politics (Routledge Advances in Theatre & Performance Studies)

by Sirkku Aaltonen Areeg Ibrahim

This study of Egyptian theatre and its narrative construction explores the ways representations of Egypt are created of and within theatrical means, from the 19th century to the present day. Essays address the narratives that structure theatrical, textual, and performative representations and the ways the rewriting process has varied in different contexts and at different times. Drawing on concepts from Theatre and Performance Studies, Translation Studies, Cultural Studies, Postcolonial Studies, and Diaspora Studies, scholars and practitioners from Egypt and the West enter into dialogue with one another, expanding understanding of the different fields. The articles focus on the ways theatre texts and performances change (are rewritten) when crossing borders between different worlds. The concept of rewriting is seen to include translation, transformation, and reconstruction, and the different borders may be cultural and national, between languages and dramaturgies, or borders that are present in people’s everyday lives. Essays consider how rewritings and performances cross borders from one culture, nation, country, and language to another. They also study the process of rewriting, the resulting representations of foreign plays on stage, and representations of the Egyptian revolution on stage and in Tahrir Square. This assessment of the relationship between theatre practices, exchanges, and rewritings in Egyptian theatre brings vital coverage to an undervisited area and will be of interest to developments in theatre translation and beyond.

Allocating Annie: A New Comedy

by Rick Abbot

When Cliff Tucker inherits an orphan on the eve of his wedding to wealthy Bobbi Ralston, he figures he can handle matters until the foundling turns out to be full grown and gorgeous with an infant in her arms. While Cliff is fielding this disaster, his lawyer, who is in love with Bobbi, plots to scuttle the wedding. Plans backfire and lunacy multiplies when a struggling actor arrives and Cliff's housekeeper/sister lets him move into the apartment Cliff is vacating. Three convoluted romances culminate in a climactic engagement party in the final act that leaves audiences roaring with laugher. The deranged events involve a dress that looks like a Christmas tree, a stuffed monkey subbing for the baby, a telltale birthmark, and a startling dinner entree called "Penguin Wellington." This farce quickly accelerates from amusing to hilarious and is a fine frolic for the entire family to enjoy.

Beauty and the Beast. Really.

by Rick Abbot

Children's musical . Characters: 3 male, 4 female . Set: Exterior and Interior . Unexpected and hilarious twists make this version of the classic an entirely different romp for the whole family. The cast of seven play nine roles: Beauty, The Beast, Father, Mother, Stepsister, Boyfriend, a hound dog, a theatrical entrepreneur and a hopelessly inept tap dancer whose thankless job is to distract the audience during the scene alterations. There is only a single set that ingeniously converts from farm to castle and back again in a few seconds. Underlying the hilarity is a solid message about true beauty.

Potential suspects include the housekeeper, the maid, the sister, the cook, the handyman, the aunt, the sexy female neighbor, the cast off sweetheart of Jabez who thought she would be the new bride.

Dracula: The Musical?

by Rick Abbot

Musical Farce / 4m, 4f / At its New York City premiere, patrons stood in line in a blizzard for tickets. At its Australian premiere, every seat for every performance was sold, and one critic noted, "the performance was one of the most enjoyable I've seen . . . My only other experience of the Dracula play . . . was the one that Sir Robert Helpmann directed . . . I can honestly say I enjoyed this one much more. It exhibited a superb sense of humor." Melodic, rollicking and hilarious, the show is also an economist's dream: one set, startling but simple special effects, and piano only accompaniment. This delightful spoof of the classic horror tale is an unparalleled romp from start to finish. The author here unveils his merits as a superbly adept composer to the joy of performers and audiences worldwide.

When the authoress decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax to a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter.

SING ON! stands on its own as a side-spitting encounter with a harried community theatre group. The music does not require a cast that can sing well, and the melodies (but not the lyrics) are well-known tunes by Stephen Foster.

Reading Modern Drama

by Alan Ackerman

This collection promotes the use of diverse perspectives and critical methods to explore the common theme of language as well as the continued relevance of modern drama in our lives.Reading Modern Drama offers provocative close readings of both canonical and lesser-known plays, from Hedda Gabler to e.e. cummings' Him.

Seeing Things

by Alan Ackerman

A technological revolution has changed the way we see things. The storytelling media employed by Pixar Animation Studios, Samuel Beckett, and William Shakespeare differ greatly, yet these creators share a collective fascination with the nebulous boundary between material objects and our imaginative selves. How do the acts of seeing and believing remain linked? Alan Ackerman charts the dynamic history of interactions between showing and knowing in Seeing Things, a richly interdisciplinary study which illuminates changing modes of perception and modern representational media.Seeing Things demonstrates that the airy nothings of A Midsummer Night's Dream, the Ghost in Hamlet, and soulless bodies in Beckett's media experiments, alongside Toy Story's digitally animated toys, all serve to illustrate the modern problem of visualizing, as Hamlet put it, 'that within which passes show.' Ackerman carefully analyses such ghostly appearances and disappearances across cultural forms and contexts from the early modern period to the present, investigating the tension between our distrust of shadows and our abiding desire to believe in invisible realities. Seeing Things provides a fresh and surprising cultural history through theatrical, verbal, pictorial, and cinematic representations.
