Appia: The Future of Theatre

This volume is the first comprehensive opportunity for Czech readers to encounter the important essayistic and theoretical work of the Swiss stage designer and director Adolph Appia (1862-1928), whose thinking about theatre fundamentally influenced European theatre in the first half of the twentieth century. The texts in which Appia explores not only the theatrical space, but also the relationship between actor and music, the relationship between music and situation, and the problems of staging the more broadly conceived Wagnerian drama. Appia’s texts have been selected and translated from French by the volume’s editor, Jan Hyvnar, who is also the author of an extensive afterword.
