MASS SPECTACLE IN FLANDERS 1909-1955: A historical, Discursive, and Political Examination of Sociotheatrical Events (completed)

Research project

Fellow: Crombez Thomas

Supervisors: Peeters Frank and Van den Dries Luk

Duration: 01/01/2008 - 31/12/2011

The aim of the project is to fill a notable gap in Flemish theatre history. Methodologically, three innovative approaches are chosen to tackle the rise and evolution of a distinctive performance practice in social, political, and theatrical life. Depending on the size and nature of the performance, this genre is designated as open-air theatre, mass spectacle, or choral drama. The research project will study the performance history, discursive development, and social and political impact of the genre.
