Academic Positions

Patrice Pavis was previously Professor of Theatre Studies at Paris VIII University.

Concept of "verbo-corps"

In 1987, Pavis suggested a new theory regarding the translation of dramatic works. The idea of 'verbo-corps' has been described as "highly theoretical" and criticized for leaving "a gap between theory and translatory practice which cannot be closed". The theory suggests a culture-specific union between language and gesture used subconsciously by every writer. Pavis suggested that the translator needed to be able to comprehend the union in the original and reconstruct it in the translation.BOOK, Translating literatures, translating cultures: new vistas and approaches in literary studies, Mueller-Vollmer, Kurt, 1998, Stanford University Press, Irmscher, Michael,

Mahābhārata

When director Peter Brook produced his collaboration of Mahābhārata with Jean-Claude Carrière, Pavis criticized the adaptation of the Indian epic for promoting a cultural "Disney homogenization and uniformity".BOOK, Widows, pariahs, and bayadères: India as spectacle, Mehta, Binita, 2002, Bucknell University Press,
