Theatre and Philosophical Principles

Information

Theatre and Philosophical Principles

Theatre practitioners have often underpinned their training and performance practices with principles. Those principles can often be defined and described as being philosophical in nature and focus. Obvious names are Grotowski, Gordon-Craig, Suzuki and Artaud, to name but a few.

This group explores theatrical practices based around or culminating in philosophical principles, which often begin not as philosophy, but rather emerge from theatrical practice itself.

Dear people in this group! As you all know that ancient Greek philosophers constructed idea of 'good life'. Theatre and performance art today might looking the same direction, or does it? Did you find out any interesting theoretical statements from theorist, who mention or describes ideas of good life in their performance theories? I am trying to find some connection between these elements (like Yosi Oida create philosophy between buddhism and performing theories).

Happy New Year!
