Access options available:. When in Antonin Artaud was released from a nine-year confinement in an insane asylum, the occasion was celebrated by a ceremony at the Theatre Sarah Bernhardt. The fact that Charles Dullin, Jean Vilar, Jean-Louis Barrault and Roger Blin were among those present to pay tribute to the poet and the man, is some indication of the r6le Artaud plays in the contemporary French theater. The vitality of his ideas today, ten years after his death, has not diminished, and is confirmed not only by frequent mentions in the many French periodicals devoted to the theater, but by the direction the avant-garde theater has taken in the works of Beckett, lonesco, and particularly Adamov.

Обнаженное тело, бесцеремонно брошенное на алюминиевый стол. Глаза, которые еще не приобрели отсутствующего безжизненного взгляда, закатились вверх и уставились в потолок с застывшим в них выражением ужаса и печали. - Dоnde estan sus efectos? - спросил Беккер на беглом кастильском наречии. - Где его вещи. - Alli, - ответил лейтенант с желтыми прокуренными зубами.
