Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] This contribution underlines how the brevity of Samuel Beckett's last dramaturgy pushes to the extreme some of the features of his theater that make it a fundamental model, as well as a privileged area of experimentation for today's scene. The basic problem posed by shorter plays is their format, which places them at the limits of theater possibilities. Beckett's work leaves the box and anticipates the evolution of the scene. A scene that has radically changed in recent decades and that today, in Italy, for example, alongside the more institutional and consolidated realities, it sees small and medium independent centers operate that bring contemporary cultural production closer to the territories and to a wider public.
