The article focuses on the relationship between fiction and reality on the XXIth century stage and explores how actors and spectators are changing and shifting identities in the contemporary theatre. Starting from three historical and theoretical paradigms, the Erika Fischer-Lichte’s aesthetics of performative theatre, the notion of participatory art focused by Claire Bishop, the Richard Schechner’s theory of performance studies, the article draws on a series of case studies that refers to the “dramaturgy of the real”. From the survivor in Rwanda 94 by Groupov, to the “experts of everydaylife” and the spectators who are protagonists in the performances by Rimini Protokoll, to the Estonian group TheatreNO99, the borders between fiction and reality and the roles of actors and spectators are challenged and transformed by theatrical experiences which show very intensive exchanges and interactions with visual arts and the media.
