Abstract(s)
The study of the Scenography for Shakespearománie I.–III. [Shakespearomania Trilogy] directed by Peter Scherhaufer at the Goose on a String Theatre in Brno is an analytical and poetological profiling of the three productions created within the project called SHAKESPEAROMÁNIE [Shakespearomania Trilogy], directed by Peter Scherhaufer, one of the most regarded Czechoslovak directors of Slovak origin, who is also a co-founder of the Goose on a String Theatre in Brno. The said productions are: Veličenstva Blázni – SHAKESPEAROMÁNIE I (1988) [Their Majesties' Fools – Shakespearomania Trilogy I], Lidé Hamleti – SHAKESPEAROMÁNIE II (1990) [The Hamlet Humans – Shakespearomania Trilogy II] and Člověk Bouře – SHAKESPEAROMÁ- NIE III (1993) [The Tempest Man – Shakespearomania Trilogy III]. The emphasis is not only on the scope of dramatic language used in the plays, but also on the development of some of their production and scenographic characteristics in a pretextual situation, their reception, and partly their place within the context of Scherhaufer's work. Special attention is paid to the prehistory of spatial analysis of dramatic texts – a method, which P. Scherhaufer used when preparing the project. The stage design of the productions within the project is interpreted primarily from the standpoint of semiotics and pretext.
