New book on theatricality launched in Argentina

Recently, La dimensión de la teatralidad. Teatro e historia, a book by Joachim Fiebach, was launched within the framework of the FIBA (International Festival of Buenos Aires). The event emphasised the questions raised by Fiebach’s research on theatrically, from the medieval definitions in the West to different, non-European manifestations. The book’s ultimate question is: what defines theatre? Furthermore, what practices, besides traditional European theatre, can be described as theatrical? What new dimensions of theatricality are being developed by current technologies?

The volume was presented by Halima Tahan (from the Argentine Section of IATC), Irina Ionescu (from the Romanian Section – Theatre Studies), and Paulina Bettendorff, the translator of the book.
