Shakespeare In Performance from the Author: Ralph Berry. These studies of Shakespeare in performance take stage history as a means of knowing the play. Half these studies deal with casting: doubling, Chorus and the crowd, the star of Hamlet and Measure for Measure. The transformations of The Tempest and Dramatis Personae are analysed. Audience control is studied in King Lear, through Cordelia's asides, in Richard II with its subversive laughter, and in Henry IV with its scenic alternation of pleasure and duty. Performance is the realization of identity.

Shakespeare In Performance from the Author: Estelle Rivier. The fourteen essays included in this collection offer a range of contributions from both new and well-established scholars to the topic of Shakespeare and performance. From traditional studies of theatrical history and adaptation to explorations of Shakespeare’s plays in the circus, musical extravaganzas, the cinema, and drama at large, the collection embraces a number of performance spaces, times, and media. Shakespeare in Performance includes essays looking not only at sixteenth- and seventeenth-century stagings of the plays in England, but at productions of Shakespeare across time in the United States, France, Italy, Hungary, and Africa, underscoring the multiple embodiments and voices of Shakespeare’s art and including a variety of cultural approaches. The work is ultimately occupied with a number of questions generated by these continual iterations of Shakespeare. How can we write and trace what is ephemeral? To what purpose do we maintain the memory of past performances? How does the transmediation of Shakespeare inform the most basic interpretive acts? What motivates Shakespearean theatre across political borders? What kinds of meaning are produced by décor, movement, the actor’s virtuosity, the producer’s choices, or the audience’s response? Each essay thus, to some degree, describes and voices the now unseen.
