Do things in theatre happen for real? Are events in theatre real? Does theatre lie? What’s the difference between “for real”/“truly” and “truth” in theatre? Questions whose answers we supposedly know – in theatre, things aren’t “as in life”. And yet, theatre is life. Theatre is a place of miracles. Theatre is a place where we have the chance to experience life as another. Theatre and Truth sets out to explore the possibilities these questions open up to us. To discover how theatre both is and isn’t for real, and how this isn’t a lie.

 

In this book, lovers and scholars of acting, directing, theatre theory and history will also find analyses of problems such as Brecht’s alienation effect, the natural in Stanislavski’s ideology, possibility in Artaud’s texts, Meyerhold’s biomechanics, how theatre is play according to Schechner, why roles are spectres according to Coquelin, and why the actor can do anything. Concepts such as “reality”, “acting”, and “illusion” are examined in light of the theses of philosophers who are key to understanding theatre theory, such as Diderot, Lessing, Goethe, Hegel, Schiller, and Schelling. Special attention is paid to phenomena such as “realistic theatre”, “conditional theatre” and “political theatre”, to contemporary theory and practice in the field of theatre, as well as to the specific case of “performance”.

The book is published with the support of the Ministry of Culture.
