ABSTRACT

One of the differential features between the Oriental and Western traditional theater is to control the emotional communication between the speakers(actors or actresses) and audience. So far, the studies on the emotional communication in the Oriental traditional theater have been committed primarily to the analysis of the styles. So they have not explained precisely the meaning of the communication of the Oriental cultural and ideal emotion. An ancient Chinese music theory,『sheng-wu-ai-lo-lun』, covers the non-heteronomous emotional communication between speakers and audience. By studying this, it has been found that the emotional communication in Oriental traditional theater shows either of the two aspects: empathy or the exclusion of empathy. Each derives from the Oriental Stoicism(堅忍主義) attitude, focusing on the moderate harmony of the emotion and based on the idea of the emotion not leaning to one direction. The non-heteronomous emotional communication style in the Oriental traditional theater inclines actively autonomous attitude to the contemporary regulatory order.
