From back cover : Antonin Artaud’s theatre of cruelty is one of
the most vital forces in world theatre, yet
the concept is one of the most frequently
misunderstood. In this incisive study, Albert
Bermel looks closely at Artaud’s work, as
a playwright, director, actor, designer,
producer and critic, and provides a fresh
insight into his ideas, innovations and.
above all, his writings.
Tracing the theatre of cruelty’s origins in
earlier dramatic conventions, tribal rituals
of cleansing, transfiguration and exaltation.
and in related arts such as film and dance,
Bermel examines each of Artaud’s six
plays for form and meaning, as well as
surveying the application of Artaud’s
theories and techniques to the international
theatre of recent years.
