Współczesny teatr ukraiński: między dyskursem posttotalitarnym a postkolonialnym
Ukrainian modern theatre: Between post-totalitarian and post-colonial discourse
Languages of publication
The attempt to divide into periods the activity of Ukrainian theatre in the era of Independence is made. The main features of these periods are revealed and the regional differences indicated. Attention is paid to the influence of crisis phenomena in social and political life of the post-totalitarian and post-colonial society on the development of theatrical art. Constructive changes in the progress of Ukrainian stage in the period of 1986–1991 are underlined, for example: lifting the censorship, opening acces to forbidden national anti-totalitarian and anti-colonial drama and others. The emphasis is put on the problems of the loss of continuity of generations of directors, reduction of positive phenomena, artificial creation of Ukrainian culture, the complex of “being secondary” in the next period. Manifestations of a new, in both form and meaning, theatre are related to the emergence of a new generation of directors and playwrights that began to explore the themes of contemporary private life and modern forms of dramatic writing.
