Poésie plastique et plastique scénique. La dimension visuelle du théâtre de Federico García Lorca (1925-1931)

Abstract : This study aims to analyze the visual dimension present in three plays written by Federico García Lorca between 1925 and 1931: Amor de don Perlimplín con Belisa en su jardín, El Público and Así que pasen cinco años. Taking as a point of departure the aspects that linked theatre and plastic arts (particularly that of painting) from the mid nineteenth century, an attempt is made to resituate Spain in the vaster cosmopolitan European cultural context of the Twenties. The study is also concerned with the relationships wrought by this versatile writer with the different arts and artists of the period, as well as with the diverse influences that he received and that can be seen not only at a thematic level but also in the plastic conception of his plays. Baroque and rococo, symbolism, expressionism and surrealism interact and respond to one another in works that constantly stimulate the reader or spectator’s imagination, actively linked to the creative process. Veritable “plastic poetry”, as Lorca himself liked to call it, his dramatic writings become the place to which all analogies converge, a propitious place for the fusion of sensations and emotions at the very heart of the words he employs; a screen where an infinite number of images are projected, both poetic and plastic, whose function seems to be that of allowing us to fathom the deepest mysteries of Man. But Lorca does not stop at the renovation of the theatre by way of the text. In the line of stage managers of renown such as Appia, Craig, Copeau, Meyerhold and Artaud, it is by way of the use of space, of lighting, of the actors performance, and by all the other means at his disposal, that he is able to reconcile the body with the verb.
