Women in Drama

...and isolation. Eastern familial piety ultimately makes the Western justice of the Greek originals impossible. By contrast, Yukio Ninagawa in his 1978 24 Medea deliberately aimed both to escape from the contemporary Western domination of Japanese popular theater through a merging of Eastern and Western traditions and to create what he hoped would be a kind of “universal” theater. In an effective merging of traditions, for example, red ribbons symbolizing blood issued from the mouths of Medea and the sympathetic chorus as the heroine resolved on revenge following the exit of Creon; the accompanying music, however, was strictly Western. The use of an all-male cast and dramatic techniques borrowed from Kabuki enabled the lead actor, Tokusaburo Arashi, to exploit with particular effectiveness and self-consciousness the division in Medea between mother and vengeful hero. The actor, who was trained as a Kabuki onnagata (a male actor who plays female roles), began early in the performance to play off gestures, body movements, and intonations of voice traditionally linked with one sex against those linked with the other. After the Aegeus scene, he suddenly removed his elaborate female costume with its prominent breasts to reveal a masculine body beneath the heroine’s blood-red robe, but retained his feminine face make-up. Medea’s final debate over the killing of the children thus developed a powerful visual dimension. Some classicists might respond to such experimental performances......

500 Extraordinary Islands

...speaks English, just one factor that makes Aruba extremely popular among North Americans. In fact, the island is one of the most Americanized in the Caribbean (70% of its visitors come from the United States), with most prices given in dollars and lots of American-style eateries and chains. But the Dutch influence is evident everywhere, from the fanciful and colorful Dutch colonial architecture in its capital, Oranjestad, to such relics from the Dutch settlement as the 1796 Fort Zoutman, the island’s oldest surviving historical structure. But it’s the sunny island pastimes that most define Aruba. Every watersport under the sun is available here, from snorkeling to kayaking to deep-sea fishing to sailing. The calm surf and sandy bottom make Arashi Beach, near the California Lighthouse at the island’s northwestern tip, one of Aruba’s best swimming sites. The island’s mecca of windsurfing is just minutes south at Hadicurari, or Fishermen’s Huts; the shallow water is also excellent for swimming. Home of highrises, Palm Beach is Aruba’s best spot for people-watching. Boca Grandi, a virtually deserted expanse of dramatic sand dunes and sea grasses, is reminiscent of Cape Cod, but the aqua, azure, and sapphire waters are unmistakably Caribbean. For sheer tranquillity and open space, Manchebo Beach, also known as Punto Brabo, is top-notch; the sand here stretches 110m (361 ft.) from the shore to the hotels. The island also has four golf courses and a world-class tennis center. But......

However, Hong Kong idols’ image not much good, like Edison Chen, because of his sex photo scandal in 2008. And other example is Jill M. Vidal, who arrested in Japan 2009 because she took drugs.

The Legend of Chushingura

...For instance, the witch was the one that sent the Kirin and she was the one to corrupt Lord Asano top warrior before his battle for the Tournament. This gives the audience a misinterpretation of the real villain in the original tale. Comparing Lord Asano’s in both versions of Goruku Chushingura, Rinsch’s film does not depict Lord Asano in the original tale correctly. In the original tale, the Lord Asano was known as being young. That is why is was very inexperience on hosting ceremonies and had Lord Kira get the best of him. In the 2013 version, Japanese actor Min Tanaka played Lord Asano. This is an issue for accuracy because Min Tanaka was born 1945, which means he is currently 69. Mizoguchi sought out that the young actor Yoshizaburo Arashi, who was roughly 24 at the time according to Fandango, would play his Lord Asano. Continuing on characters, Rinsch makes a big mistake by adding a Caucasian Samurai servant named Kai to help the samurai on the journey played by American actor, Keanu Reeves. According to the book Ancient Japan, that the shogun had strict laws against foreigners and the citizens of Japan. No one could go in and out of Japan without proper permission from the government. So how is a Caucasian boy was found in the middle of Japan? In the Edo period, Japanese scolded foreigners and did not accept them as equals at any costs. This can be seen in the 2013 film were one of Asano’s men was displeased with Kai when he heard he was going to one to lead the 47......
