La Palestine sur scène. Une approche géocritique du théâtre palestinien (2006-2016)

Abstract : This work studies how the spatial dimension is elaborated in six theatre plays produced between 2006 and 2016 by Palestinians and how these texts interact with the real space within which they unfold. Because of the strong constraints imposed on Palestinians’ mobility, the practice of territory embodies an experience. This alters the conditions and choices of production and theatre offers a space to tell this experience. In this body of texts, testimony takes center stage in the form of staged autobiography. The text therefore becomes a literary object, rather than a medium for memory. Self-narrative allows Palestinians to express their exiles in both geographic and psychological terms, by using the form of the monologue. In their stories, the characters are so affected by this experience of territory that they end up being conflated with the space they describe. The spatial dimension in the texts is elaborated from literary figures. The image of imprisonment expresses in a direct manner the links between text and reality. It participates in the questioning of the myth of Palestine that fills the texts of this decade. It is indeed in real and textual space that the identity dynamics of Palestinians are being built.
