Theatre of Cruelty Antonin Artaud was a member of the surrealist movement in Paris during the 1920s, and was well known as an essayist of avant-garde theatre. Much of the avant-garde theatre developed in France from 1914-1939 can be seen as a revolt against tradition. Deeply affected by the events of World War One, the artist movement felt increasing their disbelief of the existing societal structures that had allowed for global warfare. The Theatre of Cruelty is a method of theatre developed by Antonin Artaud, in The Theatre and its Double. Originally a member of the surrealist movement, Artaud eventually began to develop his

own theatrical theories. This style of theatre is largely movement-based, Theatre of Cruelty aimed to shock the senses of its audience, sometimes using violent and confronting images that appealed to the emotions. Text was given a reduced in Artauds theatre, as dance and gesture became just as powerful than the spoken Theatre of Cruelty In his writings on the Theatre of Cruelty, Artaud points to definitions of both theatre and cruelty that are separate from their colloquial meanings. For Artaud, theatre does not merely refer to a staged performance before a passive audience. The

theatre is a practice, which wakes us up. Nerves and heart, and through which we experience, immediate violent action. Similarly, cruelty does not refer to an act of emotional or physical violence. According to scholar Nathan Gorelick, Cruelty is, more profoundly, the unrelenting agitation of a life that has become unnecessary, lazy, or removed from a compelling force. The Theatre of Cruelty gives expression to everything that is crime, love, war, or madness in order to unforgettably root within us the ideas of perpetual conflict, Discuss this Quote by Artaud with the person besides you
