Une méthodologie unique du spectacle vivant : d'après l'analyse des spectacles de Georges Aperghis et de Thierry De Mey

Abstract : History has taught us that the crossroads among different artistic disciplines has always captured the imagination of creative minds such as Aristotle, Molière and Nono to name a few. Le spectacle vivant, musical theatre, instrumental theatre and other forms of transdisciplinary creations stand as a unique art-form, as they were initially conceived without any pre-established structures giving them greater freedom in both the creative process and result. Developed after WWII, the unusual methodology of this genre is fundamentally based on the active participation and artistic engagement of the performers within the process of creation.This dissertation addresses the historic relationship that exists among music, theatre and dance discussing in depth two major historical breakdowns, Louis XIV and Wagner which resulted in the division among such disciplines. Through the analysis of works by Georges Aperghis and Thierry De Mey, this thesis will present two personal and unique methodologies of spectacle vivant greatly influenced by dance, cinema, and theatre. In addition, a comparative analysis of the works -spectacle vivant- developed over the last six years by the author of this thesis will be included. Personal reflections on the process of creation, from a research and performative perspectives, will be shared and discussed. This thesis will also present a methodological guide to the studied works with hopes of contributing to further academic research and a wider public appreciation of this unique art form.
