La violencia en el nuevo teatro español

Joanna Mańkowska


Violence is an inherent element of a world which appears in masterpieces of «New Theatre». Violence as a theme of theses artistic works is linked to celebration of rituals and ceremonies, always presented in parodic way – it is another emblematic approach, so typical for this dramaturgy, and takes different forms – from compelling others to laying down their identity, oppression, and the most sophisticated psychic tortures to acts of mistreatment: harassment and ritual murders. By acts of violence characters try to defend themselves against the unknown or against things which make people afraid of introducing any changes in their life. To maintain the status quo of the world till its end, the world they know and where they feel comfortable and safely, they take actions to avert the danger of any transformation. However, the characters turn to violence to attack the existing order with the intention of changing it, to regain freedom taken by a system and to deprive the power from these ones who exercise it and use the violence to keep it.
