Your Physical Comedy Easter Basket

[post 377]

If you excitedly ripped open your physical comedy Christmas stocking, if you quickly devoured your physical comedy Valentine's Day chocolates, if you got all giddy over this spring's Premio de Primavera, then you'll be hopping like crazy over the dozen goodies the Easter Bunny just brought you. One hundred percent recycled from my private collection and from links that came by way of such usual suspects as Drew Richardson, Lee Faulkner, Greg DeSanto, and no doubt other folks who I am forgetting. As usual, click on any image to enlarge.

Book Report: Chain of Fools

[post 376]

Chain of Fools
Silent Comedy and Its Legacies
from Nickelodeons to YouTube
by Trav S.D.

Trav S.D. —oddly enough named after his gritty home town in the middle of South Dakota's Badlands — is a so-good-he's-bad vaudevillian: a performer, producer, historian, popularizer, and blogger whose popular blog Travalanche is a must for the variety arts fan.

I remember when I first came across his book, No Applause, Just Throw Money: The Book that Made Vaudeville Famous. I couldn't help but think "do we really need another history of vaudeville?" Then I read the book and discovered that the author was a really good writer, a prodigious researcher, and had a fresh slant on his subject matter. When I heard he was publishing a book on silent film comedy, I couldn't help but think "do we really need another history of silent film comedy?" Then I read the book and... yep, you guessed it.

Trav S.D.
A lot of people read book reviews but don't read books, but if you're just the opposite and are already zoning out then let me cut to the chase and simply say that if you're reading this blog (on purpose) then you'll probably find Chain of Fools highly entertaining and informative.


Here's just a few of the things you will like about it:

• I highlighted something on almost every page. It's just chock full of info that was new to me and very interesting.
• He writes very lively and conversational prose, the kind I like to write but don't always succeed at. Nothing pedantic here. He searches for and almost always finds an interesting way to say what he has to say.
• He's very good at context. (Read more...)

El jurado ha querido destacar su trayectoria como renovadora del género y la labor de visibilización del colectivo femenino en el mundo del circo. Plana ha querido agradecer el premio a través de un comunicado: "Cuando empecé a hacer de payasa para todos era extraño, además era mujer, trabajaba sola... Y de alguna manera me siento responsable de haber hecho visible el oficio de payasa, el premio es un reconocimiento".

Sinopsis
La estética de cabaret, café-teatro y vodevil es utilizada como estereotipo de entretenimiento. No obstante, el típico espectáculo de entretenimiento no se acaba de materializar, Lucy, la protagonista, no es capaz de entretener a su público como supuestamente debería hacer. Justamente de esta incapacidad, surge algo nuevo, un mundo lleno de posibilidades de acción que van más allá de lo preestablecido, creándose una atmósfera indiscernible donde la precariedad acaba desvelando su belleza.

CV: Diana Gadish, se graduó en el 2007 en S.N.D.O. (Estudios Superiores de Coreografía en Amsterdam). Desde entonces ha trabajado como intérprete en varios proyectos de danza- teatro-performance-clown en Holanda, Suiza, Alemania, Austria y España. En 2008 empezó a trabajar como clown junto a Jango Edwards, quien le dirigió el solo Genesis Joplin (2010), con el que sigue actuando en España y el extranjero.
