Abstract:

'Other' Spanish Theatres challenges established opinions on modern Iberian theatre in considering the roles of contrasting figures and companies who have impacted upon both the practice and the perception of Spanish, and European, stages. In examining the work of six carefully chosen case studies - Margarita Xirgu, Enrique Rambal, María Casares, Nuria Espert, Lluís Pasqual and La Cubana - Delgado offers a new interpretation of a nation's theatrical culture which has been viewed primarily through the prisms of a select number of revered playwrights. Offering a compelling case for the influence of Spanish practitioners on theatre in Europe and the Americas, the study focuses on the doing of performance, asking provocative questions around how performances are tested against the texts that remain.
