Abstract:

"Richard Foreman has been writing, directing, and designing avant-garde theatre in New York since he first founded his Ontological Hysteric company there in 1968. However, few directors have taken up the challenge of staging their own productions of these problematic, rewarding texts and his work remains under-explored by other practitioners.Richard Foreman: An American (Partly) in Paris argues that Foreman can productively be viewed as a (partly) European artist, whose thinking and theatre-making have been radically shaped by contact with Europe. Through a detailed account of Foreman's European productions, interviews with Foreman himself, a set of practical strategies for staging the plays, and the full text of his previously unpublished play Georges Bataille's Bathrobe (1983), Neal Swettenham introduces the director's work to a new generation of readers and theatre makers."--Provided by publisher.
