L’Assemblée idéale du théâtre grec antique

Abstract : In the second half of the twentieth century, the ancient Greek theatre is for the theatrical world the gathering place for the entire community. It becomes a powerful model, or counter-model to rethink a theatrical relationship that is no longer self-evident – not as text or poetry, but in its way of articulating the theatre and the city and because of the organization of the relationship between stage and auditorium that it establishes. Historical or aesthetic discourses thus shed light on common concerns and jointly participate in the idealization of this form of theatre. However, its slow integration in a historical continuity, as well as the consideration of its inclusion in the society of its era, emphasizes its historicity. This article therefore deals with representations of this theatre in the discourse of historians, but also with its contradictory uses by some directors or theorists, between ancestral, abstract universal, and in situ practice.
