Wisdom I loved; I sought her out when I was young and longed to win her for my bride, and I fell in love with her beauty. She adds lustre to her noble birth, because it is given her to live with God, and the Lord of all things has accepted her ("The Wisdom of Solomon," 8: 2-3).

Chekhov's one-acts are updated -- The Bear, The Proposal (1st act -- Oh, Love!), Wedding, Tobacco (Act II -- Ah, Marriage!), but I'm still working on the "funeral" (Last Day of Anton Chekhov). mini-chekhov
I am teaching DramLit -- groups.yahoo.com/group/dramlit (subscribe) and see THR215 for subjects, topics, titles.
Spring 2006 -- Waiting for Godot, Beckett -- new pages ( see shows )
SummaryThis directory outlived itself. It belongs to the second generation of my webpages. The new texts are in the new specialized directories (3rd generation): virtual theatre, spectator, film600 and so on. 4th generation? Well, it's not pages anymore -- but scenes!
QuestionsI call it "Theatre Theory" -- but what does it mean? This directory has no structure (book). I broke it formally in four parts: 1. Performance (why first?), 2. Directing, 3. Playscript & Spectator... and Anatoly & Theory.
NotesYou have to wait, when I can get to our "philosophers" (above); yes, I will let them speak, they have a lot to say about theory.

"... Dionysus is a god of mystery religion, with a message of salvation. As god of the mysteries, Dionysus was sometimes invoked by the name of Dionysus-Zagreus, or merely Zagreus, for whom specific dogma was established through a variation of the traditional myth about his birth.
Zeus mated with his daughter Persephone, and she bore a son ZAGREUS [zag're-us] (another name for Dionysus). Hera, because of her jealousy, incited the Titans to dismember the child and devour the pieces. The heart of the child was saved; and Dionysus was born again, through Semele and Zeus, as recounted above. Zeus in anger destroyed the Titans, and from their ashes mortals were born.
This is one of the most potent and basic myths in its elucidation of the teachings of mystery religions. It explains why human beings are endowed with a dual nature. Our body is gross and evil because we are sprung from the ashes of the Titans, but we have a pure and divine soul, since the Titans had devoured the god. From this evolved concepts of virtue and sin, life after death, and reward and punishment. This myth of Zagreus was incorporated into the mystery religion attributed to Orpheus..."
subjects : space * time * chronotope * acting * director * semio * theory * history * audience * themes *
Let me repeat myself (from Film600 and script.vtheatre.net):
Where teaching and studying (research) meet --
Theme-thought, according to different playwrights (Shakespeare, Ibsen, Strindberg, Chekhov and so on) and directors (Fillini, Kurosawa, Tarkovsky, Bergman pages).
Connections with other themes (list): family, gender and sex...
Finally, my own practical investigations: shows.vtheatre.net (only recently I began to make themes pages, Don Juan 2003, for example).
And the nonfiction (writing), of course: HIM, Father-Russia, PostAmeriKa, Self, POV, Tech (gatepages are in WRITE directory).
Yeah, yeah, there is more -- "philo" pages, metaphysics: in theatre theory directory, for instance (topics-bar: space, time and etc.)
Many files and directories are moved to GeoAlaska site: http://geocities.com/anatolant [ Where is the "Russian Page: Exile" website? "Russian Pages"? ]
Russian-American Theatre is at RAT, the plays are moved to the PLAYS directory. The SPREE server is gone and my "Russian webpages" are @ Father-Russia directory.
[some files are here]
[if I can find time the entire directory should be rewritten -- Theatre as PHILOSOPHY!]
My friend, the webbing is an experiment, which has a beginning and must have an end. I am doing it for six years, the webpages. I am writing. The Internet lets me write and publish at the same time. I was overtaken by this phenomena... Six years ago. "Theatre Theory"? I don't have to read books anymore. What theory? Maybe something ahead of me I know not about? Maybe... Maybe I can find the golden balance between the web and the thought.
