Alternatives to realism Gestures carry messages, very often unintentionally. In performance, one can say, expressive gestures reflect the person’s inner emotional or mental state. They are non descriptive, non-illustrative and non-narrative yet far from abstract. Dramatic, meaningful, intriguing and moving – expressive gestures are the most powerful communicators between the performer and the audience.
This communication can slip with ease onto a subconscious level: instead of “word processing”, the “meaning of the non-verbal message bypasses the mind and the spectator absorbs directly what she/he sees. The shape, direction, dynamics and emotional charge of the gesture of the performer will trigger associations, long lost memories, and emotions stored in the unconscious of the spectator. Some kind of non-linguistic truth – otherwise inaccessible and inexpressible – of the unconscious might surface.
The focus of the film is on GESTURES and their “imaginative” application in non-realistic performance. Kriszta Doczy, theatre practitioner and lecturer has been involved in physical performance throughout decades and across continents. The video focuses on gestures with the special emphasis on imagination. The film is the first of a series planned to explore the physical aspects of performance. “Imagination is what makes the difference; between ordinary and extraordinary and between average and fascinating..”- KD
What is Everything Else?
Everything Else is a product category on Amazon that is meant to be a catch-all for items that don’t fit into any other categories. Over time, as the Amazon catalog has grown and more specific product categories have been added, Everything Else has become less useful and more of a junkyard for cast off and forgotten listings.
Until recently, however.
Why are items listed in Everything Else when they shouldn’t be?
The answer to this is fairly simple. Some sellers are using Everything Else as an opportunity to get around Amazon’s gated category requirements. For example, DVDs with an MSRP of over $25 are now Selling certain products and bran… More and require permission to list. So we’ve seen some sellers create new listings in Everything Else to get around these requirements. We’ve noticed similar “workarounds” for other gated or Selling certain product categorie… More categories as well.
Amazon doesn’t like this. It just makes the catalog more of a mess than it already is and ends up creating a worse customer experience.
