Three Uses of the Knife - On the Nature and Purpose of Drama

By David Mamet

Vintage Books, USA, 2000. Softcover. Very Good Condition. The purpose of theater, like magic, like religion . . . is to inspire cleansing awe. What makes good drama? And why does drama matter in an age that is awash in information and entertainment? David Mamet, one of our greatest living playwrights, tackles these questions with bracing directness and aphoristic authority. He believes that the tendency to dramatize is essential to human nature, that we create drama out of everything from today's weather to next year's elections. But the highest expression of this drive remains the theater. With a cultural range that encompasses Shakespeare, Bretcht, and Ibsen, Death of a Salesman and Bad Day at Black Rock, Mamet shows us how to distinguish true drama from its false variants. He considers the impossibly difficult progression between one act and the next and the mysterious function of the soliloquy. The result, in Three Uses of the Knife, is an electrifying treatise on the playwright's art that is also a strikingly original work of moral and aesthetic philosophy. 88 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Theatre; Theatre & Plays; ISBN: 037570423X. ISBN/EAN: 9780375704239. Inventory No: 248780.. 9780375704239

Secrets of Screen Acting

By Patrick Tucker

Theatre Arts Book / Routledge, New York, 1994. Softcover. Very Good Condition. Secrets of Screen Acting, the first book of its kind, introduces both beginners and professionals alike to the art of on-screen acting. Patrick Tucker makes the distinction between acting for the stage and for the screen, explaining that the actor, instead of starting with what is real and trying to portray that on screen, should work with the realities of the shoot itself. Tucker has developed several screen acting courses, and this book is an extension and explanation of a lifetime of work in the field. Containing over 50 exercises, this book leads the reader step-by-step through the elements of effective screen acting. 222 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

The A To Z Of Arts Management Reflections On Theory And Reality

The A To Z Of Arts Management Reflections On Theory And Reality

By Ann Tonks [Signed by Author]

Tilde Publishing, Australia, 2016. First Edition. Trade Paperback. Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. Inscribed by Author. The world of arts management is a world of complexity and uncertainty, creativity and poverty, joy and frustration. But management itself is an art, not a science. You can't learn how to do it from a textbook, but what you can learn is to consider all the functions of a manager, and work out the most humanistic, thoughtful and effective way of doing them. The A to Z of Arts Management: Reflections on Theory and Reality is a reflection on all the topics that have been important to the author with over 30 years as a manager and leader in arts and cultural organisations. Some topics - like coffee or humour - are unlikely entries in a book on management. This book might just as easily have been called 'Arts Leadership' or 'Cultural Leadership' - or even 'Arts Administration'. The A to Z of Arts Management: Reflections on Theory and Reality is about storytelling and reflection. Sitting somewhere between theory and practice, it includes personal reflections and examples, in the hope that both students and those who are in the industry already doing the job might find illumination from both perspectives. And if reading some of these stories and reflections causes you to consider your own practice and be inspired to try new things, to sort out 'stuff', to go back to study, or to find a mentor to help you improve, that's all that can be hoped for. Gift Quality 484 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Theatre; Theatre & Plays; signed Editions. Inscribed by Author. ISBN/EAN: 9780734612342.
