The wholesale rejection of naturalism all started on the flip of the 20 th century via Alfred Jarry and Roger Vitrac, and brought to its severe by way of post-war authors together with Beckett and Nathalie Sarraute, resulted in the explosion of classical theatrical notions like narrative coherence, inear motion, mental characterization and understandable discussion, which have been changed by way of dissolute poetic fragments. Theatre grew to become a laboratory for examine into formal chance. modern performs in French frequently push the limits of traditional theatrical presentation and creation, posing new demanding situations for administrators and actors, who're obliged to revise and renew their dramatic perform in an effort to level them.

Mi è sembrata una buona suggestion, in quest'epoca di tweet, selfie e messaggini, ma soprattutto di caos, affiancare alle consuete vignette che ritraggono i personaggi più significativi dell'anno altrettante vignette, un po' speciali, che mi è capitato di disegnare nel corso della mia ormai lunga carriera. Giusto consistent with vedere l'effetto che fa. Sarò sincero: in più di un'occasione, il primo a rimanere sorpreso da questo gioco di contrasti imprevedibili e similitudini bizzarre sono stato proprio io.
Crediamo che qualcosa di nuovo, addirittura di inaudito stia accadendo sotto i nostri occhi e non riusciamo più a ricordare che, invece, quel «qualcosa» è già successo. Magari sotto mentite spoglie, con camuffamenti o trucchi che fatichiamo a percepire. Ma è già successo.
