By Manfred Brauneck

Das 20. Jahrhundert hat auch die Theaterkulturen der Welt einander nähergebracht.

Im Zentrum stehen die großen Theaterkulturen Europas, Indiens, Chinas und Japans, die über Jahrhunderte hinweg ihre eigenen ästhetischen Formen und Stile entwickelt haben. Ganz unterschiedlich waren auch die sozialen und kulturellen Rahmenbedingungen, die Stoffe und Themen, das Zusammenspiel von Sprache, Bewegung, Tanz und Musik und die Zwecke, denen das Theater diente. Doch mit der Globalisierung ließen sich europäische Künstler vom Theater fremder Kulturen faszinieren, während guy sich außerhalb Europas am westlichen Theater zu orientieren begann. Das Theater der Gegenwart ist in vielfältiger Weise von den Theaterformen früherer Epochen und anderer Länder inspiriert. So wird dieses Buch für den heutigen Theaterbesucher zu einem unentbehrlichen Begleiter werden.
