How to establish a dialogue between Philology, which traditionally deals with written texts, and the “performing work of art which is called “the performance”? This volume invites to bridge the traditional gap between the author and the scribes, which means between the “original text” and the “copies” in order deal with more complex situations, in which the performer, the screenwriter, or the director, assume a very central role as intermediary author or co-author in the dynamic process of creating and re-creating works.
