DISPARITION DE L'HOMME ET MACHINERIE HUMAINE SUR LA SCENE CONTEMPORAINE Denis Marleau, Heiner Goebbels, Jean-François Peyret

Abstract : Is the actor thrown back into doubt again, one century after Maeterlinck, Craig and Jarry ? The topic happens to be brought up to date. But the purpose is no longer to get rid of the actor, so that he could be replaced by puppets. Artificial actors, like avatars, robots and other doubles, are likely to get their autonomy soon, on stage. The question is not only : what is missing, when the actor is missing ? But also, what is not missing ? This thesis is based upon three performances that stroke the minds on the first decade of the 21st century : Les Aveugles by Denis Marleau, Stifters Dinge by Heiner Goebbels, and Re :Walden by Jean-François Peyret. Our conjecture is about human disappearing on stage, with a special focus on anthropological aspects. The notion of « disappearing » means, at first sight, the withdrawing of actors, but we show that other deep challenges stand in the background : body instrumentation, interferences between life and artificial, disconnection to the phenomenal world, mankind decline and ecological disasters. If the human being is supposed to disappear soon, itřs probably on theatre stage that he will stand for a while. At the same time, isnřt it on stage that he has been playing for ever with appearing and disappearing, reality and illusion ? This thesis explores these problems, dealing with all the aspects : scenography, dramaturgy, actors and spectators, technology and new machines that are completely transforming the stage into a visual, sound, and highly confusing anamorphosis, by which the human being is involved in a vanishing process.
