Théâtre, modes d’approche

Theatre should be the most approachable of the arts, but it is a complex phenomenon that has proven difficult to study. This international group of scholars analyzes the theatrical event and all of the elements that make up a performance—the text, the actor, the space, the spectator, the social circumstances. They approach theatre from a variety of directions using different methodologies: semiotic, historical, sociological, and anthropological.
