Femmes en quête de rôles : Identités de genre et art dramatique en Bulgarie socialiste (1944-1954)

Abstract : Actresses in Search of Roles. Gendered Identities and the Dramatic Arts in Socialist Bulgaria (1944-1954) - By studying the social universe of theatre actresses, this article explores the transformations that occurred with regard to women’s identities in Bulgaria, following the establishment of the Socialist regime. At a time when “bourgeois” ways of acting and the allegedly loose morality of these “muses of the arts” were being denounced, actresses were also charged with unprecedented social objectives, while asked to satisfy audiences both old and new. Rather than the disappearance of pre-Communist aesthetics and art forms, these new theatrical roles entailed a kind of turning within. While refusing to establish the existence of an opposition between the Socialist project and its reality, this article reveals that gender identities were filtered through diverse generational and social frames.
