abstract

Study of six of the most recent and outstanding dramatisations (1999-2015) of Cervantes’s Don Quijote, such as Aventuras de Don Quijote, DQ. Don Quijote en Barcelona, El caballero de la triste figura, En un lugar de Manhattan, Elogio de la locura and En un lugar del Quijote. The analysis covers the main features of such adaptations: metanarration, metadrama, doubling of the narrative structure using other artistic languages (music, plastic arts, dance, etc.), new technologies, genre hybridisation, transmediality, etc. The original text message, actualised and re-expressed by these modernisations, stands out as an atemporal one: the plays examined demonstrate its effectiveness in contemporary society and, according to the perspective of social theater, stimulate the reflection on them.
