Course description

The legend of the origins of theater is connected from the beginning with the theme of the welcome to the stranger: the gifts of the vine, wine, drunkenness and thus indirectly of the theater, are done by Dionysus to Icario farmer to repay his hospitality. Without constituting a discipline, the anthropological approach is able to speak, together, of what the theater has been and what it still is for us; incorporating and indeed using our inevitable prejudices in the story itself of its irreducible differences, historical and geographical. The course aims to trace, between ancient and contemporary examples, western and eastern, the principal questions regarding the theater and its relevance today: the body, the improvisation, the ritual, the voice, the myth, the space, the mask; why, when and how the theater "works" as a diversity workshop.
