El presente libro estudia el Teatro Panico de Fernando Arrabal, un conjunto de textos concebidos durante los primeros anos del autor en Paris, entre 1957 y 1966. Escritas en el momento de mayor auge de la vanguardia, las obras vehiculan una teatralidad radicalmente innovadora cuya piedra angular la constituye el lenguaje ceremonial. La ceremonia panica que subyace a toda esa dramaturgia es objeto de un profundo analisis a la luz de Le Panique, texto programatico del propio Arrabal en que el autor identifica los tres conceptos que desencadenan la creacion artistica: memoria, azar y confusion. El estudio se detiene en los procesos por los que la memoria determina que las obras abandonen la mimesis, y el azar articula los materiales recuperados de la memoria en tramas y estructuras hilvanadas con gran precision. Asimismo se incide en como los sujetos, objetos, marcos espacio-temporales y palabras se ven sometidos a un proceso de confusion que genera una forma teatral absolutamente innovadora. El concepto de lo panico, situado en el epicentro de esta experimentacion formal, dota de coherencia y unicidad teorica a este aparentemente heterogeneo grupo de obras. Diego Santos Sanchez es Alexander von Humboldt Fellow en la Humboldt-Universitat en Berlin. ENGLISH VERSION The Panic Theatre is a set of plays conceived by Fernando Arrabal between 1957 and 1966, the author's first years in Paris. Composed at the zenith of the avant-garde movement, they convey a radically new and challenging theatricality whose cornerstone is their ceremonial shape. The plays' underlying panic ceremony is thoroughly studied in light of Arrabal's programmatic text Le Panique, that singles out three key concepts responsible for artistic creation: memory, chance and confusion. This study shows how memory determines the plays' departure from mimesis and how chance articulates the materials recalled from memory into precisely arranged plots. Furthermore, subjects, objects, spatial-temporal frames and words are subject to confusion, in an attempt to create an utterly innovative form of theatre. This group of seemingly heterogeneous plays is given theoretical coherence and consistency by placing the idea of panic at the centre of a great formal experimentation. Diego Santos Sanchez is an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at Humboldt-Universitat in Berlin.
