Théâtre et récit : l’exemple des pièces monologuées contemporaines

Abstract : For some decades, we have seen a real vogue of solitary speeches in theatre (monologues or soliloquies) by the displays of a character, speaking and telling stories, alone on stage. These long verbal flows are aimed at questioning the main principles of dramatic plays (uniqueness of the plot, orderly and finalized progression of the actions, the chronological development and the explicit causality of the deployment of actions). I therefore, in the first instance, will show how these texts are indeed true tales because the fable, close in this to fictional fiction, is no longer limited to the temporal progression strictly chronological. In a second step, I will show that the solitude of the character is not inevitably anti-dramatic because these monologues are very polyphonic in making many characters happen in view of the multiple characters. It a sign of process of romanization that the theater has been experiencing for several years.
