Using various themes, Eric de Kuyper and Emile Poppe discuss the effect of staging on audiences of the traditional performing arts, such as opera, theatre and ballet. Contemporary and more popular forms also come into play, such as circus, musicals, festivals, street theatre, mime and even ‘garden art’.
In Theatricality De Kuyper and Poppe take a unique historical approach to the world of imagination, from the Baroque to the present day, with flashbacks to antiquity. They illustrate their views with many textual examples and hundreds of images.
Do not expect a history of theatre texts: Theatricality presents the full spectrum of sources of our modern experience of everything there is to see in terms of theatre and performing arts.
