MEANINGFULNESS VS. AMUSINGNESS
Lesák, Jan ; BORNA, Jan (advisor) ; TICHÝ, Zdeněk (referee)
The aim of the thesis is a reflection of two of my theatre productions, How to Run a Marathon and The Chameleon, in terms of their meaningfulness and amusingness. The work on both productions led me to believe that the higher amount of meaning a stage project carries, the less it is amusing. Having however seen many productions which I consider highly meaningful and amusing at the same time, I decided to explore the original notion in order to discover the actual relation between meaningfulness and amusingness. The thesis therefore defines my notion of amusingness and my notion of meaningfulness. An analysis of those notions leads to the conclusion that I find amusingness without meaning unamusing, and a meaning that is not delivered in an amusing manner I consider uncommunicable. Therefore: not only are meaningfulness and amusingness not in opposition, they even can hardly exist one without the other. My biggest mistake in the creation of the stage productions was therefore separating those two aspects. In my further stage direction practice I would like to work with meaningfulness and amusingness together in such a manner that they both mutually support each other and organically come out of one another.
