Nora's dancing scene and Cecilie Løveid's theater

Seminar paper on the dancing scene in A Dollhouse (Ett Dukkehjem) by Henrik Ibsen.

Looking at Nora dancing for her life in the Tarantella scene at the end of Act 2 as the climax of the plot in A Dollhouse, the final confrontation in Act 3 is only bound to happen. Nora's dancing is a physical anticipation of the verbal discussion with her husband.

Seminar on Cecilie Løveid Barokfrise
The use of the body and the dancing body in Cecilie Løveid Barokfrise.

Yeats, Noh theater and celtic mythology

At the beginning of the 20th century the Irish author William Butler Yeats reuses Japanese Noh theater to bring forward the Irish Literary Revival.
The Noh forms, characterized by highly codified movements, are adapted to celtic mythology. As a result dance finally enters the theater circuit as a serious art form even though through the backdoor.

My Lizenziatarbeit concentrated on the different functions of the dancing scenes in the plot.
