    Book review: Conversation-Sinfonietta

    Book review of Conversation-Sinfonietta by Jean Tardieu This book review of Conversation-Sinfonietta by Jean Tardieu, is part of my “A play a week” reading challenge. I aim to read 52 plays in a year, and I’ll review every single one right here on the blog! A symphony of conversation It’s a script meant for staging a basic conversation as if it was a choir singing together. This means a few repeated lines between the characters, who are named by their tone of voice. The script for Conversation-Sinfonietta suggested placing the actors in accordance with how you would place singers in a choir set-up. (The image below does not correspond with…

    Book review: The Keyhole

    Book review of The Keyhole by Jean Tardieu This book review of The Keyhole by Jean Tardieu, is a part of my “A play a week” reading challenge. Basically, it means that I try to read a play each week for a year, ending up with 52 scripts in total. So really, The Keyhole is more a script than an actual book. The Keyhole and absurd voyerism This script definitely had a lot going on in the subtext. Not in the naturalistic way obviously, but I saw this script play out in my mind in so many different ways while reading it. It was like the opposite feeling of reading…

    Book review: Professor Taranne

    Book review of Professor Taranne This is a book review of “Professor Taranne” by Arthur Adamov. It is really a script from 1953 and I read it as part of my ‘A play a week reading challenge‘. It’s a challenge where I aim to read one play each week for a year, ending up with 52 plays on the list. Professor Taranne Professor Taranne basically spends the whole play trying to establish his identity and does not succeed. It was like it was meant to be confusing for the sake of confusion. I get that the structure is the same as when you dream, which adds to the absurdity, but…

    Book review: The Chairs by Eugene Ionesco

    Book review: The Chairs by Eugene Ionesco “The Chairs” by Eugene Ionesco is a script and I read it as part of my ‘A play a week reading challenge‘. I read it in Danish, but will review it in English since it is an internationally known piece. I will not go into detail about the surrounding contexts of the play when Ionesco wrote it, or even the author themselves. This book review will be just a review of the reading experience from a dramaturg’s point of view. Let’s dive into it! Book review of The Chairs by Eugene Ionesco As the version I read, was a Danish translation from before…

    Book review: Komedier og dødssynder

    *This book review of Komedier og Dødssynder will be in Danish since the book is only published in Danish* Jeg modtog et anmeldereksemplar fra forlaget Ravnerock mod en ærlig anmeldelse af værket. Boganmeldelse af Komedier og Dødssynder Handling Komedier og Dødssynder er en fagbog, hvori instruktør Kitter Krebs, undersøger de syv dødssynder parret med 7 af Shakespeares komedier. ”Kitter Krebs trækker i sin lille bog interessante paralleller mellem nogle af Shakespeares kendte og mindre kendte komedier og de gamle forestillinger om ”de syv dødssynder”. Selvbedrag og diverse dårskab har altid lokket mennesker på gale veje […] læseren kan selv trække parallellerne videre fra Shakespeare til vores egen tid.” – Lånt…
