"Il faut trouver un modus vivendi" : le scandale au théâtre des années 1940 aux années 1960

Abstract : Our whole approach is based on the observation that scandal, often addressed through moral discourses that condemn or celebrate it, is actually a protean and profoundly ambiguous event. Because drama is closely linked to the concepts of emergence and immediacy, scandal finds on stage the perfect place for its release. However, in the eyes of authors seeking a definition of their identity and their relationship to others, drama and scandal, although commonly associated with notions of the spectacular, exhibition and conflict, should not be reduced to this trope. The years 1940 to 1960 in France are a troubled and unstable period, leading playwrights from different horizons to converge towards the same goal: creating a vibrant community. Scandal represents for them a privileged means of communication between the stage and the audience, offering hope of a theatre capable of reconciling the individual and the city.
