What future for Theater in the Arab World?

Quel avenir pour le théâtre dans le monde arabe ?

Practices, movements and perspectives in the perpetuation of Theater production in the Arab World

Pratiques, formes et perspectives de la pérennisation du courant théâtral dans le monde arabe

*  *  *

Published on Tuesday, May 10, 2022 by Lucie Choupaut

Summary

The ephemeral dimension of Theater is often considered as an obstacle for a pertinent account of past representations, hence the difficulty of writing the history of a practice when we cannot consider every moment of its creative process. We cannot also apprehend clearly its future. However, even if it does not pretend to predict the future, this call for papers wishes to question the long-term effects and the procedures that contribute to the perpetuation of Theatrical currents and productions in the Arab World.

Argument

The ephemeral dimension of Theater is often considered as an obstacle for a pertinent account of past representations (Denizot, 2014), hence the difficulty of writing the history of a practice when we cannot consider every moment of its creative process. We cannot also apprehend clearly its future. However, even if it does not pretend to predict the future, this call for papers wishes to question the long-term effects and the procedures that contribute to the perpetuation of Theatrical currents and productions in the Arab World. Based on a state of the art in the Contemporary Theatrical production in the region, we will question the elements that contribute to the development of said production in a specific socio-cultural context.

Research Axis (non-exhaustive list)

  • The conditions of Theater production (especially in areas and countries in conflict). 
  • Theater archives.
  • Circulation and reception of Theatrical productions, on a local and international level.
  • The diaspora’s Production : the impact of exile on Theater production
  • Theater and its relations with other Artistic practices (visuals arts…)
  • Research practices
