Sul Manifesto di Gent. Tre note tendenziose – Marco De Marinis – Stratagemmi 40
Marco De Marinis, professor of Theatre History and Visual Arts at the University Of Bologna, has never attended a play directed by Milo Rau. Therefore, he’s in an ideal position to offer an impartial point of view on the director’s Gent Manifesto. Picking on hints, quotes and innuendos, De Marinis gives context to the document and its content, providing examples of precursors of its trajectory to highlight what’s truly new about it. An essay focusing on what may have led to this groundbreaking moment in the history of performing arts, and what to expect next. Is there hope for «a theatre that changes the world, instead of simply representing it»?
