    Boganmeldelse af Dukketeatret i Danmark Dukketeatret i Danmark af Sven-Erik Olsen er en lille bog om dukketeatrets tradition i Danmark. Mere specifikt papirdukketeatret.

    Book review: The Theater and its double

    Book review of The Theater and its double “The Theatre and its double” by Antonin Artaud is a collection of letters and manifests, in the book I’ve got. It relates the theatre in its broadest sense, to all sorts of phenomenons and events. All wrapped up in Artauds personal attitude towards what constitutes theatre. The theater and its double by Antonin Artaud “The Theater and Its Double is far and away the most important thing that has been written about the theater in the twentieth century…. It should be read again and again …. Artaud oozed magical desires. He was the metaphysician of the theater. – Jean-Louis Barrault. A collection…

    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: 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…

    Book review: The Open Door by Peter Brook

    Review of “The Open Door” by Peter Brook “The Open Door” by Peter Brook is a nonfictional performing arts book about some of the theatre practices Brook and his production teams have encountered, as well as Brooks own thoughts on these. I read “The Open Door” in Danish, so if anything got lost in the translation, I’d be happy to hear from others who’ve read it in English. I will however, review it in English, since I know it’s available in both languages (and others too I assume). Get a copy of The Open Door right here on Book Depository or Amazon [affiliate links] “The Open Door” and Peter Brook…

    Book review: The Comedy of Errors

    The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare The Comedy of Errors is a Shakespearean classic and here are my thoughts of it. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a book review as it is a play of a certain age. But as a part of the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge, and me being a thespian, I just had to read it! Summary In short, The Comedy of Errors is a typical twin-comedy-drama and very Shakespeare. Two sets of twins are separated by a heinous storm. Two of them end up in one place, the other two somewhere else and herein lies the premise of our plot. The pairs of twins then…
