The Theater of Cruelty is an Artaudian artistic manifestation that shook the representative Western aesthetic bases by returning the ritual, magic and life suppressed by Western theater to the performing arts, also highlighting controversial subjects / themes silenced by a ruling class, similarly as Friedrich Nietzsche and Gilles Deleuze did with their philosophical thoughts. In view of this, it is proposed with this Master's Dissertation, to (un)fold this Theater of Cruelty having as a theoretical subsidy, besides the studies of Antonin Artaud, the investigations of Nietzsche, Deleuze and some other rebellious thinkers. Through this unfolding, one studies the possible cruel plot given by the Philosophy-Art-Life conjunction and of that, the link between Tragedy, Dionysus and the Artaudian Theater. In view of this panorama, one wonders: what unites these cruel-artist thinkers? What do Nietzsche's Tragedy and the god Dionysus lend to the Theater of Cruelty of Artaud? To this end, the theoretical clause presented here rests on the attempt to account for a study that shows the rhizomatic agreement between these three thinkers and subversive thoughts having as central axis the Theater of Cruelty. Therefore, this theater is staged to propose a connection between Artaudian Cruelty and the revolutionary powers of the Nietzschean and Dionysian tragic.
