Abstract

Abstract:

This research aims to explain the historic process through which a certain way of producing plays in the alternative theatres of Buenos Aires City took shape. The work argues that, in Buenos Aires, the process of learning to act and the production of plays are profoundly intertwined through the use of theaters that are also schools. These institutions are organized around the figure of a teacher who is also a theatre director. Three main periods were central to this process: the movement of independent theaters (since the 1930s); the growing interest in the training of actors and the techniques of Stanislavski (since the 1960s); and the proliferation of new theatre styles towards the end of the century and after the return of democracy.
