Abstract

Antonin Artaud (1896–1948) is considered to be one of the most influential theatre practitioners in the 20th century although his theory has been deemed too abstruse.  The aim of this paper is to offer a systematic account of Antonin Artaud’s concepts for his Theatre of Cruelty and the ways it influenced subsequent theatre practitioners, namely Peter Brook, Jerzy Grotowski and Eugenio Barba.
