The Metamorphosis of Performing Arts

Abstract

This article examines the relationship between performing arts, the multidisciplinary aspect of them, thereafter seeking to address a few similarities and differences in approaching a live performance. The confluence between ballet, theatre and opera is obvious and a brief overview of the main interlaced stages in the development of performing arts will also prove that they have always been related and dependant on one another. Every performing art crosses its boundaries and not only does it explore issues or topics specific to the other arts, but it also uses their tools. Thus, this article integrates a few contemporary tendencies of intersection in performing arts, mainly the pervasive presence of ballet and theatre. Subsequently, in considering live performance, the impact on the audience is also assessed, as well as the harmony of perception created between the performer and the public.

Further on, the paradigm development in performing arts is determined due to the augmenting of the new technological tools being used. The aim of using these tools is to create special effects that emphasize the quality of the performance. In addition to a comprehensive influence, this article explains how contemporary social and political changes, scientific and technological progress have determined more changes in the performing arts than they had in the previous centuries.

Theatre As Architecture of Memory and National Identity. Russian Case – Golden Mask 2018

Abstract

The author focuses on selected productions of this year’s special program category of the Russian Theatre Festival Golden Mask 2018 – Russian Case in Moscow. The comparison of the latest productions of different genres and artistic aesthetics reveals the common interest of their creators in urgent socio-cultural and historical-political themes. The Russian Case category introduced Russian theatre this year as an increasingly active tool for social engagement, which is concerned with the present or the past of the nation or individual. With the vision of a better future, creators confront themselves with collective and individual memories and seek ways to cope with them in an artistic and human way.

Theatre Scenography of Architecture Objects

Abstract

Since the beginning of the 20th century theatre has developed a completely different form of expression tools. The development of architectural methods has reached the point where it is continually moving apart from its archetype to newer and newer intellectual encryption. The method of its creation and perception have been radicalised by means of new media to offer a greater extent of its own representation. Architecture in the context of our study will be represented by the scenography. Architecture will be explored in relation to a space and its inherent characteristics by means of heterotopy and synaesthesia. Space with its specific role becomes a sphere of imagination for the audience. The study does not consider the classical term of architecture as the building and scenography as a staging of decorative mise-en-scéne.

The Problem of Form and the Relavitization of the Status of Documentary Film in Contemporary Slovak Authorial Production

Abstract

The present study offers a critical reflection of contemporary Slovak authorial production. Focusing on three films, the author analyses the authors′ approaches to representing reality from a formal point of view. The author claims that all of them relativize the status of documentary film, using as a tool of critical analysis Carl Plantiga’s definition of documentary film, included in his concept of “asserted veridical representation”. The films under analysis use three formally different approaches of relating to social reality. One relies on an acted form, the second takes the form of a historicizing essay, and the third promotes the author’s subjective views through a cut collage of motifs stemming from reality.
