Comunidades Teatrales: La Melancolia Y La Nostalgia En La Representacion Y Formacion De La Identidad Argentina A Fines Del Siglo Xx Y Principios Del Siglo Xxi.


Resumen del Libro

This study examines how the Argentine theatre of the 1980s, 1990s and early XXI century represent the construction and deconstruction of the national identity through the lenses of melancholia and nostalgia. Both of these terms are not examined as a characteristic in the representation of an Argentine identity, but rather as the means that establish the relationship of the self with the remains of their past.

The plays under study are Te de tias (1985) by Cristina Escofet, Volvio una noche (1991) by Eduardo Rovner, El Partener (1988) by Mauricio Kartun and De atras para adelante (1991) by Diana Raznovich. The second is a community constituted by actors.

The third is the marginalized community as represented in La Bohemia (1998) by Sergio Boris and Perras (2002) collective work by Nestor Caniglia, Enrique Federman, Claudio Martinez and Mauricio Kartun. Both plays use the theatrical platform to reflect on the degeneration of the Argentine self, pre and post the…
