ANTONIN ARTAUD [1896-1948] French actor, director, playwright, poet, essayist of the avant-garde theatre, artist, and early member of the surrealist movement in Paris.  He is one of the formative influences on the modern European theatre. His concept of the Theatre of Cruelty, his label for a theater intended to release feelings usually repressed in the unconscious that would assault the representational dynamics of traditional theater and break the boundaries between actor and audience, stage and spectacle, Artaud has been an important influence on modern dramatists such as Genet, Albee, and Gelber and on directors such as Grotowski, Beck, and Brook (among others), as well as the happenings of the 1950s & 1960s, the alternative theatre movement, and “performance art".  He was born September 4, 1896, in Marseilles, France, to a Catholic cultivated family with a Greek background. His father was a wealthy ship fitter. Artaud’s mother bore nine children, but only three lived beyond childhood. An attack of meningitis at the age of four left him with terrible neuralgias.  Later on he was prescribed laudanum to manage his pain, anxiety and depression, and became addicted to opiates for the rest of his life. After moving to Paris, Artaud became an actor. He appeared in silent classics such as Abel Gance’s Napoleon (1927) and Theodor Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928), as well as on stage. He had a long and intimate relationship with Romanian actress Génica Athanasiou, the protagonist of his film, The Seashell and the Clergyman (1927) directed by Germaine Dulac. This silent film is considered the first surrealist film. He was a founder of the Theatre Alfred Jarry (1926-1929) with Robert Aron and Roger Vitrac.  In 1935 Artaud’s adaptation of Les Cenci opened at the Folies Wagram Theater, where it had a short, unsuccessful run.  Following a journey to Mexico in 1936 during which he lived among the Tarahumara Indians, and another to Ireland in 1937 Artaud began a nine year period of incarceration and electro-shock treatments in mental institutions following a lifetime of physical and mental instability.  His best known written work, The Theatre and its Double, was published in 1938 and remains a highly influential piece of literature to this day.  He recorded his final work, the radio broadcast Pour en finir avec le jugement de Dieu, shortly before his death at a clinic in Ivry at the age of 52.
