dramaturgy

About: ... defined in wikipedia

pondering    Do we really know what drama is?


what is the difference between expressing and doing?

what’s the difference between doing and acting?

what’s the difference between acting and play? 

how does play acting become drama?

what is happening here?
newThe story, the script, and the roles that are “played” are all part of this picture. 
I put this in mixed media for a very personal reason that i do not expect anybody else will grok … so that is not important to you, whovever you are.   This is just me with a long established agenda to feel my way into something i got a hint of a long time ago … an opus perhaps … an understanding of swimming in life in my own peculiar manner.   Mixing media is fun and enlightening,  but we can even mix our personal inside media with that outside of us ← so that too is mixed media ← which unfortunately today does not scroll laugh

It is interesting that things animate in both the internal media and the external media.   now i am wondering if my whole mixing of media in mixed media has been all about mixing those two.  ← surprise surprise

surprisebug mixed media contains 21 thoughts but it will not scroll on the screen … it is locked at the top.   That happens in both Firefox and Chrome on my laptop.  
nope, it is not just my laptop,  on my desktop mixed media will not scroll on the screen … the screen in that room is locked on the first thought.  i’m thinking it is a thought or a comment in a thought in that room that is locking the scroll for entire room.

Of course there are lots of ways to define drama and generalize it from various perspectives.   Sometimes i like to call it magic.  For me it is the impact of what happens … without a happening having an impact, there would be on drama.  Certainly if the happening is expected and hum-drum, there is no surprise and you could say there is no drama. 

We did a product demo for Speak To Me Catalog on Saturday in front of group of about 20 people at the Everett chapter of the ACB.   So after the presentation we had some products layed out on a table and the people were gathering around and touching them and asking questions.  So i asked,  “let me try something, Are we going to sell anything ?”,   then i pressed The Nose Knows, and it said “Indeed!”.   Everybody laughed … then buying activity started.  Now i had not planned that … it was not pre-scripted … ← was it magic? ← was it drama? ← did it have impact? ← was it unexpected? ← “YES” to all of those questions.

Drama is the means by which one encounters and embraces the unexpected.
it is the means?  or the encounter itself?

My experience of both pain & quitting smoking revealed the drama behind the scenes. Prior to joining the navy I had 4 teeth filled without Novocaine in order to experience the nature of what pain really was – say on the astral plane. I figured it out, what PR tells in one of his own stories differently, that the drama of the sound of the drills & the smell of the stuff used & the dentist bending over & doing stuff in my mouth & etc was making it all up & that the real pain was basically the story & meaning & fear of what was coming was what was pain.  Like terrorism & like quitting smoking all seemed anticipation more than the submodalities of the summation of qualia of NOW. In a way the metaphor of a sleevejob is quite revealing. cool

yes the story, the context, the script acted upon the stage of our life is where the pain, ecstasy, and excitement and drama pop out.  Of those we have an incredible control ourselves …. er, except for the weight, the habit of the structure of the ages … which force we can see through and wave away for ourselves as insignificant and ignore as we create new drama.  The trick is synchronize it with others … that is when the magic happens.  … a mixing of media perchance.

It is much simpler than that. It’s the juice (jism) …. see ← this old one cool
Seth 2016-04-11 08:15:16 [item 20777#51064]
sure, seeing juice is simple once it happened … performing magic and drama as it happens is high art of living … exciting, …. but not simple … that would be a  hum drum of something else.
