"from Caligari 2009 : Horror Against War on Terror

W : among my Aristotle's Pages I do not have this page on CATHARSIS ... is a Greek word meaning "purification" or "cleansing"...

The Art is dead in America and need army and wars to fight our fears.

... America sings a lot -- it cannot stop, the moment there is no "song and dance" our fears come back!

No Entertainment can cure us -- that is the price for not having simple genre as tragedy.

We "killing time" dying of fear.

The show must be in "pictures", not words.

Perhaps, this post is for anatolant.spaces.live.com [ director's blog ] -- or WW-blog [web-writer] ?

... blurb for publicity ?

Nobody kills anybody; people die of fear -- and hysteria takes over the city (Metropolis). They kill one man suspected of crime, madman.

Cesare (somnambulist) is a poet and Dr. Caligari is his father/mentor, study "talent" (Fraud) ... both are in love with the girl "Jane" (Olimpia).

That's why ALL of them are in mental hospital (Ending).

... Third (last) time chorus ( as if in acting class voice warmups ) repeats -- fear, fear, fear or horror, horror, horror -- when the sounds become TERROR, TERROR, TERROR ?

Notes on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catharsis --

"The term in drama refers to a sudden emotional climax that evokes overwhelming feelings of great sorrow, pity, laughter or any other extreme change in emotion, resulting in restoration, renewal and revitalization in members of the audience." [ for script.vtheatre.net/dict ]
Using the term "catharsis" to refer to a form of emotional cleansing was first done by the Greek philosopher Aristotle in his work Poetics. It refers to the sensation, or literary effect, that would ideally overcome an audience upon finishing watching a tragedy (a release of pent-up emotion or energy). In his previous works, he used the term in its medical sense (usually referring to the evacuation of the "katamenia", the menstrual fluid or other reproductive material).

... Catharsis before the sixth-century rise of tragedy is, for the Western World, essentially a historical footnote to the Aristotelian conception.

... body | mind | soul -- visualization.

Cathartic Sacrifice

In early cults, the distinction between sacred and unclean is far from complete or well defined (see Taboo); consequently we find two types of cathartic sacrifice: one to cleanse of impurity and make fit for common use, another to rid of sanctity and in like manner render suitable for human use or intercourse.

Postmodern as Pre-Historical [ Society as Spectacle -- I, on stage, only mirror it -- magic mirror, of course ]

ACT I -- poetic version (Cesare)

ACT II -- scientific (Caligari)
