Between Jerusalem And Athens

by Nurit Yaari, release date 2018-10-18, Between Jerusalem And Athens Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Between Jerusalem And Athens books, How does a theatrical tradition emerge in the fields of dramatic writing and artistic performance? How can a culture in which theatre played no part in the past create a theatrical tradition in the modern world? How do political and social conditions affect the encounter between cultures, and what role do they play in creating a theatre with a distinctive identity? This volume attempts to answer these and other questions in the first in-depth study of the reception of ancient Greek drama in Israeli theatre over the last 70 years. Exploring how engagement with classical culture has shaped the evolution of Israel's theatrical identity, it draws on both dramatic and aesthetic issues - from mise en scene to 'post dramatic' performance - and offers ground-breaking analysis of a wide range of translations and adaptations of Greek drama, as well as new writing inspired by Greek antiquity. The detailed discussion of how the performances of these works were created and staged at key points in the development of Israeli culture not only sheds new light on the reception of ancient Greek drama in an important theatrical and cultural context, but also offers a new and illuminating perspective on artistic responses to the fateful political, social, and cultural events in Israel's recent history.

Jewish Drama Theatre

by Eli Rozik, release date 2013, Jewish Drama Theatre Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Jewish Drama Theatre books, Jewish theater has followed a tortuous path from extreme rabbinical intolerance to eventual secular liberalism, with its openness to the heritages of both Judaism as a culture and prominent foreign cultures, to the extent of multicultural integration. Arguing that since biblical times until the 17th century, there are only examples of tangential theater practices, this account details the history of the creation and progression of Jewish drama and theater. It states that the initial intolerance, shared by the Church, was rooted in pagan connotations of theater rather than in the neutral nature of the medium, capable of formulating and communicating contrasting thoughts. Whereas by the 10th century the Church understood that the art could be harnessed to its own ends, Jewish theater was only created seven centuries later through spontaneous and amateurish theatrical practices, such as the Yiddish purim-shpil and the purim-rabbi. Due to their carnivalesque and cathartic nature, these practices were tolerated by the rabbinical establishment, albeit only during the Purim holiday. As a result, Jewish drama and theater emerged despite rabbinical antagonism. Under the influence of the Jewish Enlightenment, Yiddish-speaking theaters were increasingly established, a trend that became central in the cultural enterprise of the Jews in Israel. This process involved a renewed use of Hebrew as a spoken language and the transition from a profound religious identity to a secular Jewish one characterized by a basic liberalism to the extent of openness to cultures traditionally perceived as archetypal enemies of Judaism. This book sets out to analyze play-scripts and performance-texts produced in the Israeli theater in order to illustrate these trends and concludes that only a liberal society can bring about the full realization of theater’s potentialities.

Fictional Thinking

by Eli Rozik, release date 2009, Fictional Thinking Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fictional Thinking books, This book offers a theory of the archaic mode of fictional thinking and a methodology for the analysis of fictional worlds. It presupposes the mutual independence of the description of a fictional world, in any language or medium, and the described fictional world. Such a world is generated by an autonomous fictional structure, which reflects the spontaneous expectations of the spectator, and thematic specification. A model of this structure is presented, comprising seven layers: personified, mythical, praxical, naive, ironic, and aesthetic - and overriding these layers, the structure of the fictional experience on the level of relationship between the fictional world and spectator. This experience depends on the spectator's ability to complement such a description with pertinent associations, drawn from shared cultural resources, and psychical mechanisms of response. Explanations and examples are couched in poetic, pragmatic, aesthetic, and rhetoric methodologies. An Introduction surveys the major contributions made to a methodology of fictional analysis since Aristotle's Poetics, problematizes them, and suggests possible alternatives. Part I is devoted to the inner structure of fictional worlds, i.e., to the poetic rules that generate them. The innovation of this approach lies in its multi-layered nature. Part II deals with the structure of the fictional experience, which is metaphoric and rhetoric in nature. Part III deals with the specific structures of fictional worlds that reflect the particular intentions and purposes of their authors. Part IV contains analyses of actual fictional worlds that illustrate the application of the previously presented principles. The focus throughout is on theatre fictional worlds which by their nature exhibit the most complex fictional thoughts that the human brain can generate. The theoretical insights gained for theatre assumedly apply to descriptions of such worlds in any language or medium. More than a hundred fictional worlds created during 2,500 years of theatre-recorded history are analyzed. The volume has been purposefully designed to address undergraduate and postgraduate student needs to provide a fundamental competence of theatre studies.
