This issue of Theaterschrift investigates the continuing, or revived, role of the spiritual or religious aspects in the theatre. Our chosen subject has a somehow ‘offensive’ ring to it, making the question delicate for many of the artists asked aked about the spiritual aspect of their work. This offensiveness is due to the seemingly inevitable, if altogether foreshortening, associations with esotericism that make the concept of ‘spirituality’ problematic in itself. To nevertheless investigate the relevance of a spiritual dimension in or for the artists’ work seemed all the more interesting.
With contributions written by, among others: Jerzy Grotowski, Peter Sellars, Diamanda Galas and Jochen Gerz.
