The place of fiction

Abstract : The main subject of this research is the investigation on the role of fiction in western contemporary theatre. In line with the social changes of our times, theatre has lost its clear definition. At a time of radical questioning, the mutation or disappearance of fiction is central in the discussions around the definition of theatrical art. To understand an environment of disbelief in methods and results of representation, we research into a potential new place that theatrical fiction occupies [or can occupy]. Through the theoretical debate and analysis of theatrical experiences of last the three decades, we identify a concern with the real, and formal innovations that are not incompatible with a critical theatrical project.
