abstract

The avant-garde movements and the theatre masters of the early twentieth century opposed to the idea of a realistic and stylistically recreated theatre costume and gave to the stage clothes a symbolic and expressive meaning. The experimentations of the early twentieth century and the more recent research overcome the idea of the identification of the costume with the character to transform the performer’s body in an art object and figurative element that are essential to the visual composition of the entire show. The current article is intended to examine the extremely close link existing between the performer’s body and the position of the theatrical costume.
