La Escenificación de una Mirada y el Testimonio de los Cuerpos en el Teatro Documental de Vivi Tellas


Rev. Bras. Estud. Presença




ABSTRACT In this article we review some theoretical approaches to the artistic proposal of Argentine theatre director Vivi Tellas, focusing on her documentary theatre project Archivos, an expression of her wider project Biodrama. We will look into different aspects that define her particular way of working with the real materials her performances are based on, and we will consider the possible ethical and aesthetic implications of her work. Giorgio Agamben's notion of witness will play a special role in this analysis, since it enables us to formulate a hypothesis about the kind of testimony given by these ordinary bodies as well as by the objects/documents Tellas brings to the stage.
