Antonin Artaud's ideas and the terms invented by him - most famously the 'Theatre of Cruelty' - are a vital part of contemporary theatre's everyday vocabulary.

This book demonstrates how his theories, his practice and his influence interlink by exploring Artaud's proposal for a Theatre of Cruelty and assessing the extent to which he achieved his aims during his own lifetime. The final chapter employs practical workshops to demonstate how Artuad's ideas have manifested themselves in contemporary performance.
