Resumen: "What exactly is 'cultural exhange' in theatre? What is at stake for both target and source cultures? Western culture has a long and fraught history of cultural appropiation, a history that has particular resonance within performance practice. Patrice Pavis asks what is a stake -politically and aesthetically- when cultures meet at the crossroads of theatre? A series of major recent productions are anaysed, including Peter Brook's 'Mahabharata', Cixous / Mnouchkine's 'Indiade', and Barba's 'Faust'. These focus discussions of translation, appropriation, adaptation, cultural misunderstanding, and theatrical exploration. Never losing sight of the theatrical, Pavis confronts problems of colonialism, anthropology and ethnography. This signals a radical movement away from the director and the word, towards the complex relationship between performance, performer and spectator". (De la contracubierta).
