Q2. Viewpoints | The Modern Theatre – Passing the Torch 

The ideas of Copernicus, Galileo, Darwin, Freud, Marx and Einstein (among others!) along with the influences of the Industrial Revolution, Photography, atomic warfare, and global warming have spawned a Modern Theatre dominated by “realism.” But reading Chapter 8 reveals that realism is just another style of theatre. Every “new” style of theatre is a reaction to improve the status quo and serves a specific set of purposes, from pure entertainment, to promoting propaganda. Watch the four video clips to learn more about realism and Theatre of the Absurd. The clip of Laurel and Hardy provides an example of the kind of meaningless and repetitive activity that influenced the creation of Waiting for Godot. Think back on the many plays and styles of theatre you’ve read about in this class, and the plays and productions you’ve seen this semester. Using examples from those experiences, make a case for the production and/or production style that is most pertinent to today’s world and your own personal vision of what theatre should be for your generation. Should forward thinking theatre artists concentrate more on entertaining or enlightening? The more complete your answer, the better your grade.
