Séminaire “Medieval and Early Modern England on the Contemporary Stage : The Past is Back on Stage”

Mardi 22 février 2022 à 18h.

Séminaire organisé dans le cadre de l’axe « Faire commun » d’EMMA. Intervention de Marianne Drugeon.

The volume Medieval and Early Modern England on the Contemporary Stage : The Past is Back on Stage (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2021) explores the multiple connections between contemporary British theatre and the medieval and early modern periods. Involving both French and British scholars, as well as playwrights, adapters and stage directors, its scope is political, as it assesses the power of adaptations and history plays to offer a new perspective not only on the past and present, but also on the future. Along the way, burning contemporary social and political issues are explored, such as the place and role of women and ethnic minorities in today’s post-Brexit Britain. The volume builds into a dialogue between the ghosts of the past and their contemporary spectators.

Starting with a focus on contemporary adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays, then concentrating on contemporary history plays set in the distant past, and ending with the contributions of famous playwrights sharing their experience, the book will be of interest to practitioners, as well as students and researchers in drama and performance studies.
