Authorship, textuality and intertextual perspectives in the theatre : the case of ShakespearePart of : Γράμμα : περιοδικό θεωρίας και κριτικής ; Vol.2, No.1, 1994, pages 61-76
The interrelationships between author/text/performance have been at the kernel of the English directorial problematic concerning the presentation of Shakespeare's plays since the 1960s and 1970s. During this period, the RSC developed a practice that conceived the perfomance as an interpretation inscribed in the stable text and guaranteed by the dramatist's authority. At the same time, the Open Space, following an intertextual practice, understood meaning as the provisional result of the interplay between text, the theatre institution and the historical and political conjuncture. Investigating the theoretical premises of these two approaches, the article that follows attempts to contribute to the articulation of a directorial problematic on Shakespeare.
