Mimesis, Masochism and Mime: The Politics of Theatricality in Contemporary French Thought - Theater: Theory/Text/Performance (Hardback)Timothy Murray (author)
Hardback Published: 01/06/1997
- Not available
In the first collection of its kind, Timothy Murray brings together in English translation essays by leading French writers, introducing the Anglo-American theater community to the French debate over theatricality and representation -- a debate that has seriously altered European perspectives on literature and language and has slowly begun to affect the pedagogy and practice of theater internationally. Mimesis, Masochism, and Mime includes essays by Louis Althusser, Charles Carmello, Helene Cixous, Gilles Deleuze, Jacques Derrida, Regis Durand, Frantz Fanon, Josette Feral, Michel Foucault, Rene Girard, Andre Green, Luce Irigaray, Julia Kristeva, Phillipe Lacoue-Labarthe, Jean-Francois Lyotard, and Louis Marin. Bringing varying psychological and philosophical views to bear on the historical and contemporary contexts of performance, film, and video, the contributors provide astute commentaries on Sophocles, Shakespeare, and Artaud, as well as fascinating analyses of more recent mixed-media performance from the European stage to the site of North American performance.
