Ludics in Surrealist Theatre and BeyondeBook - 2013
This study reconsiders Surrealist theatre specifically from the perspective of ludics-a poetics of play and games-an ideal approach to the Surrealists, whose games blur the boundaries between the 'playful' and the 'serious.' Beginning with the Surrealists' 'one-into-another' game and its illustration of Breton's ludic dramatic theory, Rapti examines the traces of this kind of game in the works of a wide variety of Surrealist and Post-Surrealist playwrights and stage directors.
