World-wide Shakespeares: Local Appropriations in Film and Performance

Taylor & Francis, 2005 - 199 sivua

Drawing on debates around the global/local dimensions of cultural production, an international team of contributors explore the appropriation of Shakespeare¿s plays in film and performance around the world.

In particular, the book examines the ways in which adapters and directors have put Shakespeare into dialogue with local traditions and contexts. The contributors look in turn at ¿local¿ Shakespeares for local, national and international audiences, covering a range of English and foreign appropriations that challenge geographical and cultural oppositions between ¿centre¿ and ¿periphery¿, and ¿big-time¿ and ¿small-time¿ Shakespeares.

Responding to a surge of critical interest in the poetics and politics of appropriation, World-Wide Shakespeares is a valuable resource for those interested in the afterlife of Shakespeare in film and performance globally.

Sivu 5 - Mimicry is thus the sign of a double articulation; a complex strategy of reform, regulation, and discipline, which "appropriates" the Other as it visualizes power. Mimicry is also the sign of the inappropriate, however, a difference or recalcitrance which coheres the dominant strategic function of colonial power, intensifies surveillance, and poses an immanent threat to both "normalized" knowledges and disciplinary powers.
