Roundtable: Storytelling and the Spanish Comedia: Adapting Classical Theater for Modern Audiences
Sheraton Centre Toronto – Sheraton Hall C

Description

In a world where, paradoxically, increased communication via social networks has caused an increase in physical isolation, stories can bring us back together. The theatre, which allows us to partake in a shared experience, is one of the few places where this can happen. This roundtable consists of two academics and two theatre practitioners, all of whom wish to see the theatre, and particularly that of Spain’s “Golden Age”, flourish among modern audiences. To this end Teatro inverso has created a theory of Bodily Poetics: the understanding of how the actor’s body creates the space on stage in connection with the poetry of the words and their actions, which they have used to create Rosaura, an adaptation of the classic La vida es sueño by Calderón de la Barca. Rosaura focuses on the female characters and their connections to each other, the action of the play, and their raw emotions.
