Espacio escénico y simbología religiosa, en los albores del teatro cortesano
María Isabel Toro Pascua
AbstractThe symbolism of the early liturgical drama suffered profound changes when it was first played in the court, bringing to the dramatic performance new features that reflected the specific characteristics of life in court. In this article, the author analyses the religious plays written by Juan del Encina and Pedro Manuel de Urrea, paying particular attention to the presentation on stage of religious elements: from those present in the performing area itself, the court chapel which is a central element of the performance, to those brought into the stage, either as part of the atrezzo, or the didactic through which the words created the physically absent symbol; the author also analyses the particular case of Pedro Manuel de Urrea's play, Écloga del Nascimiento, in which the players place themselves on stage forming the symbolical image in prejudice of the dramatic performance, a technique that is clearly associated to artistic displays based on tradition, such as the iconography and the court invention.
