Actors show altered brain activity when in character, study finds

Method actors employ an intensive approach to acting that involves staying in character for long periods of time.The recent study asked trained method actors a variety of hypothetical questions under four different scenarios.The results showed changes in brain activity depending on whether actors were in and out of character, including alterations to activity in the prefontal cortex — a key region in terms of self-awareness. None Method actors famously blur the lines between their everyday perso...

Brain Scans Of Actors Find Different Neural Functioning When They’re In Character

“Writing in the journal Royal Society Open Science, [Canadian researchers] report how 15 method actors, mainly theatre students, were trained to take on a Shakespeare role – either Romeo or Juliet – in a theatre workshop, and were asked various questions, to which they responded in character. They were then invited into the laboratory, where their brains were scanned in a series of experiments.” – The Guardian

MOTO PHOTOS: 2019 MBE Show, Verona, Italy

Written by Andrew Jones When you think about it, Italy having one of the world’s biggest and best bike shows makes total sense. Like Japan with their bullet trains and the Swiss being so good at watches, motorcycles seem to be at the very heart of the Italian psyche. And one visit to a show like Motor Bike Expo 2019 only drives the point home. It’s not wall-to-wall factory bikes or a bunch of business types ‘shifting units’ and exchanging email addresses. It’s honest-to-goodness, grass-roots ...

Verona: The perfect destination for Shakespeare fans

Did you know that almost a third of Shakespeare’s plays are set in Italy? Two of his most famous works are even set in the city of “fair Verona”, so we thought it only apt to take a tour of the landmarks that any literature fan would be a “Shakespearean fool” to miss. Warning: Many of these locations are a fair distance from each other, leaving you two options. You can make use of the local public transport and walk, which may save you a bit of money. Alternatively, you can look into car hire at...

A Bilingual ‘Romeo And Juliet’ — In English And American Sign Language

In a new production at ACT in Seattle, Juliet will speak English while Romeo will sign. (Interpreters will translate other roles’ lines into ASL.) In a process involving several steps, Shakespeare’s text has been converted into ASL poetry, “a distinct, dramatic form of sign-language storytelling … [that] uses gestures and facial expressions to evoke such poetic conventions as repetition, rhyme, alliteration, rhythm and meter.” – The Seattle Times

The Six-Foot-Seven Prisoner Who Staged The First All-Black Shakespeare

Richard Crafus, aka “King Dick”, was shipped off to a prison in southwestern England as an enemy combatant during the War of 1812.

Solo Lady Travel: 7 Safety Myths Debunked

I never planned to be someone who routinely made looks of horror cross people’s faces.  And yet when I tell people I’ve traveled solo around the world for six months, that’s the most common reaction I get. “Really?!” The eyes grow wide.  “Weren’t you worried about…” And the conversation will turn to one of many myths when it comes to women traveling alone, many of which fly counter to the realities I’ve faced during my travels. Here are a few of the bigger chunks of mistaken lore and advice I’v...

Cheating, Stalking & Obsessing: I Was Joe In You

When Joe (Penn Badgley) stalks, tortures, and obsesses over Beck (Elizabeth Lail) in the Lifetime series You , I identified with him. I’m not proud to admit this, and this was a version of me a long time ago, but still, I related to him. This is especially true when he justified his behavior with the logic that this is what one does when they’re in love .In the early aughts, in the last few years of my teens, I had my first boyfriend, and I believed I was in love. I first met him when we were...

50 years ago, these were the No. 1 albums and music singles of 1969

In 1969 you either bought your music on black plastic circles and used a needle to scratch sounds out of the vinyl, heard it on the airwaves, most likely on a lo-fi AM radio, or, if you were lucky, saw your favorite bands and musicians live in concert. The best-selling album of the year, Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” plateaued at No. 4 on the charts, but that’s probably because the 10 albums that made it to the top were more uniformly solid, nearly all of them still considered classics....

World’s loneliest frog found a mate

Design for learning – what’s in a name?

‘A rose by any other name would smell so sweet.’So goes the the line from Romeo and Juliet, implying that the name you put to something is much less important than the characteristics of that thing. While this is certainly true of roses, it may not apply so well to people. Although Juliet certainly felt that it did not matter that Romeo’s family name was Montague, it certainly played a big part in his ultimate fate. What we call people can influence how they – and those around them – behave.Whi...

The Beat Goes on at Hotel Danieli in Venice

Christmas Tree at Hotel Danieli - Photo: Cat Bauer (Venice, Italy) American literature had fascinated the Italian writer and journalist Fernanda Pivano (1917-2009) from a young age.

She hung out with Hemingway and Bob Dylan, and brought the radical words of the Beat Generation to Italy, becoming a crucial part of their revolution.On Tuesd...
