For a Phenomenology of the Interval in the Theatre performance. A Semiotic Analysis

Abstract

Theatre, in the notional complexity to be undertaken, updates and in this update it feels more pronounced the tendencies of increasing the performing spectrum. Writing about theatre inevitably leads you to set on something, on that attribute bringing the conviction that around its analysis the appreciative matters get interesting and reveal assumptions for future analysis.

The article we propose approaches theatre in the cardinal ambiguity of meanings, namely in what we call here interval. We assume an approximate delimitation of this range, balancing and improving the center-periphery relationship, and then establish ourselves to turn the performance itself into a phenomenon, with a double implication. Making a connection between the audience and the performance is not something new, but if the significance, the midpoint of this relationship is fractured in the process transmitter-receiver, can we not think of the possibility of the interval/range as a deconstruct refuge of meanings?

This paper asserts that if hiding the meaning becomes a phenomenon itself, it will be possible to read the performance by averaging this interval in which will be found, in the articulation of the public’s reception, the association of the cultural and theatrical codes.

On Seduction in Theatre Performance or the (Im)Possibility of a Demythisation

Abstract

Seduction doesn’t really refer to love. In fact, it isn’t at all directly related to love, but as the word’s etymology suggests, it is an intellectual act that means “to lead on a different path”, “to corrupt”. Starting from this point and considering it in regard to the theatre performance and audience, our main purpose in this paper is to identify the elements involved in the process of seduction that takes place in the performance space, but also the role of each one of these elements. We will make a series of approaches on a theoretical level, involving some exercises in semiotics, in an attempt to reformulate the relation between the performance and the audience. This paper asserts that the performance is acting the part of the seducer and the audience is the one being seduced, but also that there is a secret involved in this relation, enlarging the aesthetical notions related to the theatre performance, through the relevant functions of desire and intimacy.

The Erotics of Scenario. On the Construction of the Subject in Postmodern Theatre

Abstract

Set in the postmodern culture cadres that Lyotard talked about twenty years ago, we are witnessing an accelerated mistrust of a conspicuous value. In fact, all this mistrust has occurred amid a radical overthrow of the way we were accustomed to perceiving the values of modernity. Having its starting point in philosophy, falling into disuse that postmodernity propose grows like a wave that appeared after a stone was thrown into the water. Theatre has not escaped from postmodern articulation, and its subjects have inevitably passed through the postmodern reconfiguration filter. In this article, we will talk about the subject of eroticism, trying to outline our thesis on the idea that the comprehensive synthesis of the receiver in relation to the postmodern performance is based on the construction of the subject folded on the identification of some indicators. Considered as a cultural construct, eroticism is eliminated through its discourse and requires scenarios to be fully understood and recognized. The question inevitably arises: to what extent can we talk about these scenarios in the postmodern performance?
