Топик The Experimental Theatre
Since the beginning of the century the European, and later American, theatre has been endlessly experimenting with new forms and styles of production.
Partly this has come from a desire to save the audience from boredom, or a reaction to new forms of entertainment, such as the cinema or television.
The 20-th century has also seen the role of the stage director assume greater and greater importance.
In a revival of a classic by an experimental director the main interest is focused on how he reinterprets the play, so that it illuminates not only the period in which it was written, but also contemporary reality.
The experimentalists have been greatly interested in the relationship between the audience and the actors. In the conventional theatre the audience is completely separated from the actors. In the experimental theatre, on the other hand, one of the most important aims is to do away with the separation between the audience and the stage, so that everyone, actors and spectators, are taking part in a collective theatrical experience.
