Abstract (Summary)
THE RHINOCEROS IN 2006: A DRAMATURGICAL ANALYSIS OF EUGENE IONESCO’S RHINOCEROS by kClare Kemock This paper supports Miami University’s production of Eugene Ionesco’s Rhinoceros by providing a dramaturgical analysis of Ionesco’s text, his characters, and his genre of anti-theatre. Through the research, the paper discusses director Dr. William Doan’s concept of technology as a modern-day threat of mass conformity, how it was introduced as a metaphor for Ionesco’s rhinoceroses, and how it was supported throughout the production process with directorical and design choices. Further, the paper questions whether Ionesco’s Theatre of the Absurd and, more specifically, his anti-theatre are effective in 2006.
