Abstract

The purpose of this article is to study the influence of the theories of Antonin Artaud in the Cuban theatre. The contributions of Artaud’s theories from his crowning work, The Theatre and Its Double, to the American continental stage have hardly been studied. The overabundance of Brechtian studies prevalent because of their ideological emphasis since 1959, obviously on the wane in recent years, substantially eclipsed Artaudian theoretical contributions on the American continent in this century. I review the works of Matías Montes Huidobro, José Triana and Virgilio Piñera. These playwrights experimented with Artaud’s theories before they became well-known throughout the American continent. This article attempts to address this imbalance. (AFP, in Spanish)
