abstract
In this dissertation I examine the complex interactions between, on the one hand, an increasing centrality of memory in postmodern culture and theory, and on the other hand, a paradigmatic shift in the performing arts, form a dramatic to a postdramatic theatre. Three contemporary, postdramatic artists will be in the centre of this research: Romeo Castellucci, Christoph Marthaler and Jan Lauwers.
