Professor Dan Rebellato (RHUL) – Theatre, Sex and Zombies: The Strange Case of the Naturalist Stage

Naturalism is the single most influential movement in European theatre of the past two hundred years. Yet through it run faultlines that reveal profound contradictions in the value of theatre, the role of the spectator, and the possibility of a scientific stage. This talk, drawing on theatre, literature, philosophy, urban studies and the visual arts, will try to restore both a sense of naturalism’s radicalism and its perversity.
