THE NEW THEATRICAL AESTHETICS
With Víctor Molina
Pending new dates
Wednesdays from 18pm to 20pm, 14 sessions
The theater brings – and brings – space and time. "Real" time and space, and "fictional" time and space. And in a kind of genealogical vocation – or probably necessity – contemporary theater turns towards them to think about itself from its own foundations.
He does this -among other ways- by taking on the challenges provided by the field of duration (through particularly extensive works, or dabbles in the aesthetics that confront the current time of acceleration, for example, wandering in the world of brevity , with dramatic micro-pieces or scenic aphorisms, or - quite broadly - confronting theatrical repetition as the unrepeatability of the performance...); he does so by assuming them as areas of his aesthetic production (through, for example, a landscape theater, or through the multitude of poetics of the visual theater), or ventures into the terrain of his own reception (through the possibilities of immersive theater, or conferring new status on the spectator), or even does so by confronting its own history (revisiting the classics, mainly Shakespeare, although not exclusively, or parts of the heritage of its origins avant-garde).
This course wants to be an approximation around some of these concerns and some of the figures that define contemporary theatre. It is impossible to generate a general landscape, let alone a systematic one, about these new theatrical challenges. Rather, it is conceived as a rhapsodic, pointillist approach, we could say fractal or even pixelated. Completely heterogeneous in its contents, and in the ways of approaching them.
