Interpréter les passions selon les dictionnaires de théâtre – Les combinaisons du savoir au service du jeu

Abstract : Seeking to identify some turning points in the thinking and practice of acting, the article offers an analysis of “passions” entries in late eighteenth and nineteenth-century dictionaries on theatrical art. This diachronic reading shows that Passion was first considered within the framework of a pictorial paradigm inspired by Charles Le Brun and others physiognomonists’ pathognomony, before this model was abandoned in favour of an appreciation of the actor’s individual intuition. The identification of the sources used by the authors and the multiple borrowings from one dictionary to another leads us to examine two fundamental gestures in the writing of these works: compiling and copying. In doing so, the complex status of dictionaries as a place for preserving and updating knowledge is considered.
