Tableau

  1. 1. Tableau vivant• French for "living picture.“• Throughout the duration of the display, the people shown do not speak or move.• The most recent hey-day of the tableau vivant was the 19th century with virtually nude tableaux vivants or "poses plastiques" providing a form of erotic entertainment.
  2. 2. Tableau On Stage
  3. 3. • Series of tableaux presented on a theatre stage, one following another, usually tells a story without requiring all the usual trappings of a "live" theatre performance.
  4. 4. • Since English stage censorship often strictly forbade actresses to move when nude or semi-nude on stage, tableaux vivants also had a place in presenting risqué entertainment at special shows.• In the nineteenth century actresses took such titles as "Nymphs Bathing" and "Diana the Huntress" and were to be found at places providing erotic entertainment in the form of nude tableaux vivants on stage.• Such shows had largely died out by the 1970s.
