    True Theatre

    • 348 Words
    • 2 Pages

    I personally believe that the true magic of theatre relies on the power of make-believe. True theatre is the art of inciting the imagination, to the point in which we are so immersed in the play that, if just for a few hours, we forget our own reality. The first time I came to this realization was when watching the 2011 Moscow's Chekhov International production of The Tempest. Not only was the performance so engrossing to the extent that I felt I could understand Russian without the help of the surtitles

    Theatre must be represented without any limits, full of freedom, without any boundaries. There is no such thing as correct theatre, it is the effect that is important. It is what it makes you feel.

In this aspect I find similarities with Artaud, that claims for the audience to be disturbed, to feel uncomfortable and to wake up
