The tradition of modern mime dates back to the pantomime blanche of the 19th century. Bip, the character created by Marcel Marceau, is the descendent of Pierrot, from whom he inherited his pale white dreamy face. Bip is first of all a hero of our time and resembles his other counterpart, Charlie Chaplin, with his burlesque nature. But the originality of Marceau's creation is not the result of its numerous cultural references. Inspired by Decroux's grammaire statuaire. Marceau created his own mime technique. His attention to detail establishes a code composed of different positions of the hands, steps and immobile poses. In his Bip and style pantomimes, as well as in his mimodramas, he completes this code with technical processes thanks to which, having no recourse to real accesories, he his able to render the invisible visible. Mime is a means of communication without words. Every mime performance is thus a group of signs, which the initiated spectator receives and interprets according to accepted convention and his previous experience Marceau's system of codification creates a breakdown of the gesture sequence into minimal units, which contain meaning and afterwards can be drawn, in this case following the rules of Labanotation. Moreover, the dinstinct gesture sequence compose larger groups which transmit a chain of messages constituting the fable of the pantomime. Marceau's work is characterized by a constant search for new solutions in the domain of mime narratif. To the classic signifying elements of theater, Marceau adds those which were heretofore considered foreign to this dramatic genre, such as music and sound effects, with the result that the fable is conveved on many different levels of signification
Les premières oeuvres romanesques d'André Gide by Jean-Michel Wittmann ( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study analyses the critical reaction to symbolisms and decadence in the earliest works by Gide, from Les Cahiers d'André Walter (1891) to Le Prométhée mal enchaîné, including Le Voyage d'Urien, La Tentative amoureuse, Paludes, El Hadj and Les Nourritures terrestres. It lays the emphasis on three aspects - the writer's ethics, his writing and morals - which are apprehended through a theorical biais and it puts to the fore the deep-laid influence exerted upon the creative works of Gide by the criticism of symbolism. The basis for the different analysis put forward in this study is the analysis of Les Cahiers d'André Walter. The next three chapters successively pay attention to the criticism of the symbolists, their literary technique and literary circles, all elements which also correspond to Gide's own criticism of his first novel. The study is continued by two chapters which are dedicated to works written after Paludes and whose sin is to investigate further into the outcome of the above-mentioned criticism and espacially to demonstrate how Gide progressivly brings to the scene a new conception of the writer. Gide's artistic evolution in the literary context of symbolism is thus best analysed through this study which also throws light on the quintessential part play

Théâtre et enjeux spirituels dans les années cinquante et soixante J. Audiberti, E. Ionesco, G. Schéhadé, J. Vauthier by Yannick Hoffert ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At first sight, the dramatic universes of Jacques Audiberti, Eugène Ionesco, Georges Schehadé and Jean Vauthier seem to have little in common beyond the rather vague fact of having participated in the teeming life of the New Drama. And yet, they are deeply united by the central role they grant to spiritual matters in the representations of existence they present. In such representations, the meaning of man's adventure is narrowly linked to the possibility for him to conceive his situation in terms of a decisive relationship with what lies beyond him. The first part of the thesis analyses the viewpoint of the four dramatic works on the place of spiritual life in the human city. This life is highly threatened by a protean sclerosis caused by the ravages of materialism, the tyranny of rationality, the question of power and the withdrawal into conformity. The institutional forms of religion being unable to provide men with the meaning they need, it falls to art to become the channel of the spiritual adventure. This common point being established, the ways that offer diverge. The works of Jean Vauthier and Georges Schehadé, studied in the second part, assert the possibility of a Christian orientation. On both universes the Christian line of thought most often assumes veiled and rather undefined forms, avoiding direct affirmation. Seen as a poetical adventure, religious life adopts in each work specific and very distinct modalities. With Jacques Audiberti and Eugène Ionesco, whose stage creations are treated in the third part, spirituality appears in the guise of an endless questioning alongside a torturing beyond remedy, which far from being hidden by humour is foregrounded by it. The stake for man's adventure is thus to persist in that unease which feeds on a passionate dialogue with Christianity, between reverence and blasphemy, proximity and alienation

Le personnage féminin dans le théâtre de Jean Cocteau Sa relation à l'espace et au temps by Eléonore Antzenberger ( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Our ambition was to examinate the particularities connected with the womanlike character in Jean Cocteau's theatre and to submit it to space and time, so our point of view will only concern a part of its potentialities. The first thing that is to be said was the relationship between the womanlike character and the scene in which it plays. This brings us to examinate the meaning of the scenery and the prop's symbolic womanlike closer. Moreover, this analysis highlights the importance of the hand-movement's character, as well as its animation, would have been incomplete without the use of dramatic language. The latter composes a very special space - we mean a space based on monologs and dialogs - in which the womanlike character shows a particular profoundness, which deserves to be discussed. Another point of view of this question was to consider the womanlike relationships with time. It appears that the womanlike character was deeply sensitive to dramatic forms, especially monodramas and three-acts plays. That is the reason why the rhythm of the action shows the way a womanlike character can come a long way. Thanks to these first observations about temporal aspects, it is now time to discuss of the womanlike wandering. Wandering in / out of time has actually been considering as one of the main womanlike themes, given that it claims that the character's beginning and destiny are responsible for what happens on stage. These chapters insist on themes relating to womanlike condition, as maternity, love and death. It tries to prove the character - nether when it does not move, nor when it talks - does not necessarily follow production's rules. Through the space and time's study in Jean Cocteau's theatre, we have been mainly in touch with the womanlike character's spirit, in order to understand the part its plays in his entire dramatic works
