The definitive guide to the life and work of Antonin Artaud
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.
