SOME TYPES OF SHORT THEATRE IN EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY VALENCIA

Catalan Review (2005), 19, (1), 265–285.

Abstract

Traditional history of theatre has doubted the existence of theatrical activity in Catalan in eighteenth-century Valencia. This article highlights the continued presence of an “informal” and Valencian theatre, made up of short pieces; it gives information about actors, audiences and the places where this activity was developed. Finally, it looks at the works staged and proposes a typology of them based on the Castilian dramatic models that the popular actors imitated and mimicked.
