De un teatro sin palabras
contributions made to the pantomime
The work deals with the development of wordless drama as a genre privileged for the reteatralization of our scene, as it forms part of the classic drama and, as a genre that established a frontal opposition to the naturalistic theater.
Ultimately, pantomime constituted a fundamental link in the forging of a new model of actor, rendered useless in his grandiloquent oratory and forced, consequently, to make his body and, above all, his face a fact of total significance.
We analyze here the contributions made to the pantomime genus by authors like Benavente, Gómez de la Serna, Martínez Sierra, Tomás Borrás and García Lorca, among others.
