Modernist Harlequinade: CDArte Across the Arts- Abstracts by 9/30/14
Modernists recast familiar figures of commedia dell'arte to sharpen social critique. Millay's anti-war play Aria da Capo is a prime example. Pierrot became central, embodying artists' sadness and isolation, and was eponymous with or without the all-white costume: onstage (Bert Williams), in film (Chaplin and Keaton), or in Ballet Russes sets and costume (Picasso). This session welcomes papers on literature, film, theatre, and/or visual arts, regarding creation or reception.
