Theatre Libre BOURASSA ANDRE G



Question sur les "theatres libres", provenant d'un nouveau membre, de
Nouvelle-Zelande, auquel vous pouvez repondre en francais.
Il y aurait lieu de clarifier les equivalences ou non-equivalences
entre "theatre libre", "free theatre", "theatre d'art" et "little
theatre". La notion de "little" est-elle purement dimensionelle? Est-ce
une notion generalement recue par la critique anglophone, qui inclurait
les theatres d'art, theatres libres, theatres amateurs, etc.?

Il y a un important article signe David Gardner, "Little Theatre
and Amateur Theatre", dans Eugene Benson et Leonard W. Conolly,
_The Oxford Companion to Canadian Theatre_, Toronto, O.U.P, 1989,
p. 301-309. Aussi quelques considerations d'Alec Baron sur le
"Yiddish Art Theatre" de New York dans son article "Yiddish theatre",
dans Martin Banham ed., _The Cambridge Guide to World Theatre_,
Cambridge, 1988, p. 1084-5.

Cordialement, Andre G. Bourassa

I am researching the tradition of Free Theatres (then and now) - a tradition
that originated with:
Andre Antoine - The Theatre Libre
Aurelien Lugne-Poe - The Theatre de L'Oeuvre
&
Otto Brahm - The Freie Buhne, the Irist players, the Stockholm Intimate
Theatre, Independent Theatre, The Moscow Art Theatre...

I am aware of The southern Free Theatre Company, The Free Theatre of Munich
and I've been told of the Almost Free Theatre. Is anybody aware of other
free theatres? Does anybody have references or information on the Almost
Free Theatre.

Any information would be most appreciated.

Cheers Peter Currie.
