Email this page Considered among the most influential figures in the evolution of modern drama theory, Antonin Artaud associated himself with Surrealist writers, artists, and experimental theater groups in Paris during the s.

Together they hoped to create a forum for works that would radically change French theater. Artaud, especially, expressed disdain for Western theater of the day, panning the ordered plot and scripted language his contemporaries typically employed to convey ideas, and he recorded his ideas in such works as Le Theatre de la cruaute and The Theater and Its Double. Les Cenci was produced in Paris in but was closed after seventeen dismal performances. Author George E. Wellwarth, for example, in Drama Survey, explained the theater of cruelty as "the impersonal, mindless—and therefore implacable—cruelty to which all men are subject.

Fowlie wrote: "A dramatic presentation should be an act of initiation during which the spectator will be awed and even terrified. During that experience of terror or frenzy.

While being treated in a hospital by Edouard Toulouse, Artaud was encouraged to express himself in poetry, which Toulouse later published in the journal Demain. At times he expressed faith in God; other times he denounced the Church and deified himself. He was also obsessed with the human body; he loathed the idea of sex and expressed a desire to separate himself from his sexual self. The focal point of his universe was himself and everything radiated from him outward.

The tidal force of his imagination and the urgency of his therapeutic quest were disregarded and cast aside as the ravings of a madman. Modern man can respond to Artaud now because they share so many psychological similarities and affinities. To him the rational world was deficient; he welcomed the hallucinations that abolished reason and gave meaning to his alienation.

He purposely placed himself outside the limits in which sanity and madness can be opposed, and gave himself up to a private world of magic and irrational visions. According to Sontag, Artaud "has had an impact so profound that the course of all recent serious theater in Western Europe and the Americas can be said to divide into two periods—before Artaud and after Artaud.
