Parasite Cinema

Abstract : In Theatre and its Double Artaud explored how the plague communicates beyond simple contact, bringing death to those it touches, but also bringing fear, images, and the imagination, which transforms social relations , disorganising society and producing absurd antisocial actions. In this essay we would like to relate the emergence of a parasite-cinema, one that expresses itself through predatory forms of capture and communication , where images pullulate out of control (but do not destroy the body of the host), to Artaud's understanding of plague as a proliferation of communication.
