Günther Heeg

Das transkulturelle Theater1, von dem hier die Rede ist, ist im Werden2. Es lässt sich nahezu weltweit finden in den Arbeiten des Gegenwartstheaters, aber auch frühere Theaterformen offenbaren das Werden des transkulturellen Theaters einem neuen wissenschaftlichen Blick. Gleichwohl oder gerade … Continue reading “What is transcultural theater?”

The drama of identity. Theatre, Identity Politics, (Re-)Appropriation

Nikolaus Müller-Schöll

Der Abend beginnt als Spektakel, als barock anmutendes Theater, das Zirkus, Jahrmarkt, Variété, Maschinentheater und Popkonzert beerbt – und mit alledem natürlich auch die Performance Art, und dies, obwohl es sich zunächst einmal um eine Inszenierung handelt, die auf einem … Continue reading “The drama of identity.

Ross McElwee est sans doute le cinéaste qui a tenté le plus obstinément de cerner le rapport impossible entre l’objectivité fatale du monde enregistré et le sentiment intérieur supposé correspondre à cette visée. Il y revient au fil de l’élaboration … Continue reading “Photo, cinéma, photo, cinéma – mouvements de Ross McElwee”

Sounds Like Theatre

Janet Cardiff e George Bures Miller

Against Dousing the Flames

Valentina Valentini

In this, the third issue of Sciami/Richerche, presences, voices and thoughts harmonize into a chorus, despite having found themselves together by chance.

La voix : entre corps et langage

Guy Rosolato

C’est assurément dans l’opéra que la voix atteint une ampleur qui la porte à ses limites. Aussi est-ce avec l’œuvre « lyrique », à partir de ce qui la différencie de la musique instrumentale (dirons-nous pure ?), que nous observons, … Continue reading “La voix : entre corps et langage”
