Tragedya ile Sinirlan Asmak, Theodoros Terzopoulos un Tiyatrosu
ed. Kitap deyince Yayinlari, Istanbul, 2008
We live in an era that most artistic sensibilities have been almost vanished. Art is easily consumed and being transformed into merchandises, while the artistic education suffers.
Fortunately, there are still a few resisting kernels, that deny surrendering to the dominant trends in art. One of those kernels is Theodoros Terzopoulos and Attis Theatre. In Terzopoulos’ theatre, tragedy is not just a shape anchored to a historical period and devoid of dynamism. On the contrary, it functions as a field, where contemporary concepts and conflicts are discussed and revealed.
This book approaches the directing and acting method of Theodoros Terzoppoulos and Attis Theatre as a sui generis research method in the contemporary chaotic cultural universe and helps us renew our ideas about tragedy, acting and direction.
