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 James, unfortunately I am not coming to Prague this summer. Thank you for replayd to my message. I will look at Zarill again and perhaps we could change thouhts more about this issue, which still interested me.
Comment by James Hamilton on June 5, 2017 at 17:53

Dear Pia, This is a very good question. I think it is complicated by the fact that many people draw a false distinction between acting and performing. It is perhaps better resolved by observing the distinction between theories that are normative -- what Zarilli has called "acting process theories" -- and those that are descriptive. If you are at the conference in Prague this year, you might find some of what I have to say about that helpful. (Look for the panel chaired by David Saltz.)

Best,

--Jim

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!
