On Carr’s Eleven-Dimensional Dramaturgy

D. Z. Zou

Abstract—Contemporary Irish playwright Marina Carr integrates eleven-dimension theory into her post dramatic art creation, forming a unique eleven-dimensional dramaturgy. This unique eleven-dimensional dramaturgy runs through Carr's whole drama creation career, and has different focuses in different periods: in her early drama, Carr concentrated on the expression of the concept of “non-linear time”. In the mid-land drama, she focuses on the creation of “high dimensional space”, while in the later drama of death and fantasy, she focuses on the presentation of “multidimensional worlds”. Finally, with the connection of the eleven-dimensional dramaturgy, Carr created a “non-linear”, “high dimensional” and “multi-dimensional” dynamic post-dramatic theater, and conveyed the eleven-dimensional philosophy of life beyond time and space.

Index Terms—Eleven dimensions, high dimensional space, multidimensional worlds, non-linear time, post-dramatic theater
