Antonin Artaud, was a French writer, poet, dramatist, visual artist, essayist, actor and theatre director. Considered among the most influential figures in the evolution of modern drama theory, most critics believe that Artaud’s most noted contribution to drama theory is his “theater of cruelty,” an intense theatrical experience that combined elaborate props, magic tricks, special lighting, primitive gestures and articulations, along with themes of torture and murder to shock the audience into confronting the base elements of life.
