12N Notes

Comedy Shakespeare
I wanted to use the text (copyright free) for a case study (acting, directing, drama).

The same with "3 Sisters"....

Consider it a web-book.

Comedy and Comical [ Theatre Theory ]

Wisdom of Errors

Aristotle on comic hero (below normal): social catharsis?

The "normal" can be open for analysis by moving up (tragedy) or down (comedy).

Physical World; the Poetics of Flesh.

Sex Games.

Body Speaks.

Headless Humans = Funny Animals.

Tragic Malvolio, supressed primitive desires. Triumph of the primitive surperseding the vulgar.

The role of the audience: the public makes it comtemporary.

Theatre Biomechanics: Style or Method?
