Selected contents from this journal
Max Reinhardt – thoughts about theatre
Languages of publication
Max Reinhardt, one of the greatest theatre directors, was a theatre maker, actor, director and theatrical entrepreneur. However, unlike other great directors (Constantin Stanislavski, Vsevolod Meyerhold, Jacques Copeau, Antonin Artaud, Erwin Piscator, Bertolt Brecht, Jerzy Grotowski), he devoted little time to writing about theatre and did not leave any systematic methodological reflections on his profession. This study attempts to reconstruct from his writings Reinhardt’s thinking about theatre, especially about the relationship between a playwright and theatre, an actor’s personality and his technique, stage design and space and his relationship mainly to classic dramatists. It must be stated that despite a great effort it is practically impossible to reconstruct his thoughts in their complexity. It is partly possible only if one is familiar with his productions and theatrical business.
