About the Author:

Avra Sidiropoulou is Lecturer at the graduate Theatre Studies program of the Open University of Cyprus.

Review:

"A fresh perspective on the impact of Jarry, Craig, Appia, Wagner, and Stein, among others, on present praxis. . . Part of Palgrave Macmillan's 'What Is Theatre?' series, this book is a must read for those interested in both a theoretical and 'practice-related context in which to examine and evaluate' the contemporary theater director-auteur. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals." - CHOICE

"The writing is fast paced and engaging. In its brevity, but also by the frequent recasting of the key arguments in fresh language, Sidiropoulou instructs even as she delights. This work should go a long way toward re-opening the American student mind." - Stavros Deligiorgis, Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature, University of Iowa, USA

Book Description Palgrave MacMillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 228 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.6in. x 0.7in.Provides a comparative approach to the internationally wide-spread phenomenon of the contemporary director-auteur in the theatre, urging a historical and theoretical exploration of the visions, methods, and stage idioms in the work of established artists. Sidiropoulou examines prominent examples of both older and more recent director-auteur work, aiming at re-asserting to its artistic and academic audience the value of balancing the established emphasis on the diegetic aspects of theatre with the ever-spreading varieties of dramatic de-centering and dis-semination. This exciting work also poses questions of authorship, which necessarily imply the redefinition of the relationship between playwright and the director-playwright. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9780230120181
