Diffrazioni beckettiane: il plesso teatro-schermico di Atom Egoyan
MetadataShow full item record
Although primarily known for his work as a filmmaker, Atom Egoyan has staged several theatre plays. In his career, theatre and the screen appear to be intertwined into a practice strongly influenced by Samuel Beckett. The artist adapts Beckett’s texts on two occasions: a work from behind the camera – the film of the drama Krapp's Last Tape – and a staged ver- sion of Eh Joe’s script. This paper aims to analyse how Egoyan transfers Beckett’s teleplay Eh Joe from the television screen to the stage.
