Theatre of Violence
Considering the Violence of the Stage
Opera & Violence
The great virtue of ancient tragedy is that it allowed the Greeks to see their role in a history of violence and war that was to some extent of their own making. It also allowed them to imagine a suspension of that cycle of violence.
Pasolini is one of the most radical but at the same time one of the most poetic of thinkers, who really understands the stakes. It was almost logical therefore that society would have to kill him.
Conversation with the artist
We are not free. And the sky can still fall on our heads.
And the theater has been created to teach us that first of all.
