Chronotopes of delivery: grounding the cultural politics of Moroccan theatre
MetadataShow full item record
The article seeks to highlight the chronotopes of delivery in modern Moroccan theatre and show how and when the act of grounding its cultural politics took place. It unmasks Lyautey’s dynamics of colonial modernity and highlights the historical role of Theatre of Resistance which used colonial levers as resistance weapons to subvert and destabilize the position of the colonizer, disperse his very identity and authority and displace western hegemony. In short, the article sheds luster on the traces of modernity in post-colonial Moroccan theatre and how these traces came to be frowned upon following the post-colonial turn.
