Episode 60 - Dr. Louise Young (Wisconsin)

The Meiji at 150 Podcast

In this episode, Dr. Louise Young de-centers Japanese modernization during the Meiji Period by re-orienting our attention to Japan's peripheral "second cities," including Niigata, Okayama, Kanazawa, and Sapporo.  We discuss uneven power relations between the center and periphery, trace the circulation of ideas of urban life between domestic and colonial cities, and link imperialism to the rise of a culture of popular Japanese fascism in the 1930s before retracing historiographical shifts in scholarship on the Restoration. (Transcript here).

Cabaret Whore Sarah-Louise Young on creating, directing and surviving the Fringe

Cabaret Secrets Podcast

Sarah-Louise is an internationally renowned cabaret performer, actress and writer. Named one of Time Out’s Top 10 Cabaret Acts and voted Best Musical Variety Act in the London Cabaret Awards, she has also guested with Fascinating Aïda and is a member of award-winning improvised musical group, The Showstoppers. We discuss the inspiration behind her new play Night Bus written with Linda Marlowe and directed by Russell Lucas. She explains how honing her skills in standup helped her to use music more carefully: “I've noticed in cabaret, if you start with a song the audience will breath a sigh of relief. Music is a way to wrap you audience up and set an emotional tone. Sometimes though you can use silence and the uncomfortableness of silence as a kind of music.”How to tell a storyHer most commercially successful piece is Julie Madly Deeply (written with Michael Roulston). It presented the challenge of telling the life story of Julie Andrews without it sounding like “Wikipedia live”. She says, “You have to decide which story you're telling. You can't tell anyone's life in an hour so you have to decide which thread and what matters. In the case of Julie Madly we told it from the point of view of the fan.”Working with a directorWe discuss the high level of trust that's required between the director and the artiste. It works both ways. As a director herself she says her aim is to give the artiste the tools they need, a framework, and then leave the artiste to get on with it. “Ultimately the artiste should render the director redundant.”“You can tell actors who really understand the world. They're the ones who hang their costumes up at the end of the day and don't assume someone else is going to do it for them.”Surviving the Edinburgh Fringe Festival This is Sarah-Louise Young's twelfth time performing in Edinburgh. She shares her tips for performers thinking of coming along for the first time. The costs can be as low as £2000 but you can easily spend £10,000. Check out the Free Fringe (it's getting better all the time), flyer carefully (Sarah-Louise hasn't been on the Royal Mile for 5 years) and watch out when people have “please don't flyer me faces”. Perform as a guest on variety shows to spread the word. Sarah-Louise has made her own free “survival pack” for anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time and she's happy to share it. You can contact her via her website here. In the first place she advices performers to come along to the festival and see what's going on. Look at the places you'd like to perform in and see what other people are doing.Taking good care of yourselfSarah-Louise is in Edinburgh to work. She sees others shows for her mental health but takes great care of herself physically. It's tempting to spend all night partying but she never drinks, steams her voice three times a day and tries to get to bed before 1am everyday. Clearly it's a formula that works.Recorded in Edinburgh 18th August 2014You can read more about taking good care of yourself in chapter 13 (Rock Stars Live Like Nuns) of Cabaret Secrets.

Louise Young, “Beyond the Metropolis: Second Cities and Modern Life in Interwar Japan” (University of California Press, 2013)

New Books in History

During the interwar period (1918-1937), the city began to take its modern shape in Japan. At the same time, development in the Japanese provinces became a capitalist frontier in a new phase of industrial revolution. In Beyond the Metropolis: Second Cities and Modern Life in Interwar Japan (University of California Press, 2013), Louise Young traces these phenomena in an innovative and fluid narrative that is also a pleasure to read.  Young shifts our focus beyond Tokyo, the city that usually looms large in studies of Japanese modernity, and instead explores the worlds and the archives of the provincial city. Focusing on Sapporo, Kanazawa, Okayama, and Niigata, Young’s book is a fascinating study of the city as material network and social imaginary. The narrative celebrates and respects local differences in these very different urban localities, while at the same time tracing the emergence of shared spatial and temporal ways of living in the world. It is a careful, sensitive, and important study, and it changed the way I think about locality and Japan in history. Enjoy! Learn more about your ad choices.
