"The origins of the modern theater. From Jarry to Brecht", Franco Perrelli, Laterza, 2016.
It presents Maria Ida Biggi
The turn of the nineteenth and twentieth century was one of the most vibrant and stormy in the history of all the arts, characterized by a continuous succession of positions tenacious attachment to the past and rejection of tradition, experimentation and realization of deliberately commercial products, scandal and morality. And perhaps especially, the theater was in the middle of extremely lively clashes that saw alternating conservatives to the experimenters, the right-minded to provocative, but evidenziarono especially the need on the one hand to defend a commercial product linked to a solid tradition and on the other the need to renew the European scene with a completely new work, designed to give new life to dramatic art.
The first decades of the twentieth century thus represent for the history of the revolutionary era and excessive theater, which boasts among its protagonists figures as Jarry, Strindberg, Craig, Appia, Stanislavski, Marinetti, Meyerhold, Brecht and Artaud, to name just a few.
This interesting new essay by Franco Perrelli reconstructs the dramatic theories elaborated in those years, he recalls in detail the most important shows and especially highlights the close relationship between direction and scenography, an aspect which also opens an analytical view of many traits of the theater contemporary.
