A History of Theatre in Spain by Maria M. Delgado,David T. Gies

By Maria M. Delgado,David T. Gies

major theatre historians and practitioners map a theatrical historical past that strikes from the non secular tropes of medieval Iberia to the postmodern practices of twenty-first-century Spain. contemplating paintings around the diversified languages of Spain, from vernacular Latin to Catalan, Galician and Basque, this background engages with the paintings of actors and administrators, designers and publishers, brokers and impresarios, and designers and ensembles, in indicating the ways that theatre has either commented on and intervened within the significant debates and problems with the day. Chapters ponder paratheatrical actions and well known functionality, comparable to the comedia de magia and flamenco, along the works of Spain's significant dramatists, from Lope de Vega to Federico García Lorca. that includes revealing interviews with actress Nuria Espert, director Lluís Pasqual and playwright Juan Mayorga, it positions Spanish theatre inside of a paradigm that acknowledges its hyperlinks and intersections with wider eu and Latin American practices.
