“Un théâtre de nerfs” : corps et didascalies chez Yasmina Reza

Translated title of the contribution: "Theatre of nerves": bodies and didascalia by Yasmina Reza

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article aims at increasing awareness of stage directions in drama relating to the body, by taking as an example Yasmina Reza's dramatic works (eleven plays from 1987 to 2015). It brings about the role of stage directions in creating a theatre made of 'nerves'. In fact what transpires is that words become less and less capable of expressing the characters' emotions, and scenic indications have to take over.
