Summary/Abstract: The Living Sphinx is a play that retains the elements of the ancient theatre (mythos,ethos, pathos, catharsis), medieval theatre (binomial:good/evil, white/black), Renaissance theatre (Mukail like Lolo, Kabil like RichardIII), neoclassical theatre (reason, clarity, constant character), romantic theatre (mixing of theatrical types), modernist theatre (functionalization of décor and costumes, scenic symbolism, dancing, mixing techniques) and,of course, from postmodern theatre as this play was written according to its principles.
