L’Utopie du Théâtre Populaire dans la première moitié du XXe siècle : une étude comparative entre la France et la Chine

Abstract : The concept of “popular theater” has many connotations which is often contradictory and it constitutes nowadays a utopia or a true “myth”, in the sense that Roland Barthes attributed to this term in his famous Mythologies. Our research project is therefore an attempt to question this utopia by comparing the debates, theories and practices that have crossed the twentieth century in France (and in Europe) and in the same period, those that animated a context far removed, culturally and geographically: China. Between the desires of democratization and the effects of propaganda, between dreams of formal revolutions and aesthetic conformism, the notion of popular theater makes it possible to go through a long period, rich in contradictions, characterized by enormous changes on the political and ideological level (two world wars and several revolutions) as well as strictly theatrically. If China has been able to represent on several occasions, a mythical and controversial model in the west, what about Western theories and practices, especially French, in China? This study is based on a comparative survey of socio-cultural movements, intellectual thoughts and aesthetic transformations of a utopia concerning popular theater of the twentieth century between France and China.
