Acting and its refusal in theatre and film

by Marian McCurdy | 24 March 2017
Category: Performing Arts
Synopsis
Acting has traditionally been considered a form of pretending or falsehood, compared with the so-called reality or truth of everyday life. Yet in the postmodern era, a reversal has occurred-real life is revealed as something acted and acting is where people have begun to search for truth. In Acting and its Refusal in Theatre and Film , Marian McCurdy considers the ethical desire of refusing to act-which results from blurred boundaries of acting and living-and examines how real life and performance are intertwined. Offering a number of in-depth case studies, the book contextualizes refusals of acting on stage and screen and engages in an analysis of fascist theatricality, sexual theatricality, and the refusal of theatricality altogether.
