Abstract:The idea of an analysis of the performance art from the perspective of the sign value of the elements of theatrical language is common now. Going back in time, however, can give us the possibility of a reassessment of the anticipatory dimension of Caragiale’s theatrical vision.
At the turn of the century, Caragiale forwarded a question that has long been a controversial issue: „Can drama be called literature?”. One step ahead of his time, having a profound understanding of the stage act, the playwright underlined the necessity of establishing clearcut and objective relationships between the elements of theatrical language, word, image and stage action. We take the word as tool for performance creators as a possible key to the understanding of the never fading contemporary character of his scenic vision, which is placed under the sign of novel and vivid approach to the performance.
