Theatre of Yesterday and Tomorrow Commedia Dell'arte on the Modern Stage
1992 0-7734-9529-0
This is an examination of the widespread influence of commedia dell'arte, one of the rarest of theatrical forms - a non-literary theatre that emphasized the skill of the improvising actor. In the twentieth century an astonishingly diverse group of playwrights, actors, directors, and designers rediscovered the art of commedia in ways that permanently changed the direction of the modern theatre. Luigi Pirandello, Edward Gordon Craig, Vsevolod Meyerhold, Max Reinhardt, Jacques Copeau, Dario Fo, Eugenio Barba, and many more sought liberation from formal literary drama. They viewed commedia as theatrical art at its pinnacle of expressivity and creativity. Includes chapters on Italy, Spain, England, Russia, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia, Germany, France, and the United States.
