La recherche de la voie/x dans le théâtre d'August Wilson : l'exemple de Fenceset Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Abstract : This dissertation looks at the various ways the Afro American community searches for its voice in order to assert their specificity and role in society, particularly in 20th century American society, and this through the medium of theatre. Basing our study on two plays by the Afro American playwright, August Wilson: Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (1984) and Fences (1987), we will thus see how theatre enables the Afro American culture to resonate. Furthermore, we shall discover how the musical culture of the blues ideally embodies the Black American voice.
