SP Johannes Riis. The balancing of performer expressiveness against narrative objects of emotion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

In my paper, I will view performer expressiveness in terms of aesthetic properties. In addition to communicative functions, we may look for balance of performer expressiveness and objects of emotion in the narrative, thus viewing narrative structure and performances as part of an integral whole. I will discuss Bette Davis in Jezebel (1938), The Letter (1940) and The Little Foxes (1941).
