Description
Summary:This article is based on the observation of a historical mismatch between drama and feminism in Colombia, due to a problematic simultaneity that occurred in the 1990s in Colombia. It is the simultaneity between, on the one hand, the appearance of gender issues on the stage and, on the other hand, the critics' impression of a "crisis of meaning" - which we will question. In the face of this tendency of post-dramatic theatre, performative proposals constitute an alternative that re-politicises gender and decolonises theatre. The study of emblematic works (by Santiago García, Fabio Rubiano, Patricia Ariza), leads to the conclusion of a specific relevance of performance to gender issues. However, assigning feminism to a specific art form is unsatisfactory, hence the need to explore alternatives.
