20th century is the space (time) of amateurs...
"It is essential to put an end to the subjugation of the theatre to the text, and to recover the notion of a kind of unique language half-way between gesture and thought." -Antonin Artaud. "The Theatre and its Double"
Bad Subjects, Wrong Theories
"Total"? It has to be amateur!
Amateur Theatre, amateur art... hello, 3rd millennium.
What is "professional"?
Artist as System, unique and "accidental"? Reaction to "Mechanical Age" of replication?
Director is pomo artist. What does he do? Montage of Attractions!
Art of Spectatorship? Book of Spectator.
Director "writes" and "acts" like a spectator, indirectly. But how the arrangement became dominant craft? (As in music?)
Wait! But in hard sciences professionalization rule, right?
Direct Page @ vtheatre I.
2007 notes : "directing web-show"? Theatre2.0
Theatre, Film? BOTH. Web!" Theatre UAF + " ... this is what I am doing for years. Moving theatre to the web?
No, no storyboards. But the difference between "play" and "playscript" is important: script is the blueprints for the show. Virtual Theatre directing is DESIGNING THE SPECTACLE: on stage for live audience... and for the cameras... and for the screen...
I left Beckett (Godot, Spring 2006) confused. Great Play? Or "script"? No more great dramas?
"Director's Theatre" (20th century) is show-based; I myself wrote a few "compositions" (not plays). Away, away from literature? Grotowski and the Idea of Shaman = no to "Theatre" in principle?
Stanislavsky made his "method" based on actor-individual -- and Chekhov became the last dramatic writer...
In theory it all looks understandable.
The original vtheatre files are at filmplus.org/vtheatre -- and I lwavw them for "theory" [ updates are needed 7.4.07 ]
-- To move images for Oleanna to "Mamet Pages"?
