L'ecole du spectateur, pp. 165-238. 78. Regarding this concept, see Julia Kristeva, "Le sujet en proces", Tel Quel, 52 (1972), 12-30, and 53 (1973), 1738. On the character as actant, see chapter V of this book and chapter II of Lire le theatre by Anne Ubersfeld as well as chapter II of my book Brecht en el teatro hispanoamericano contempordneo (Buenos Aires: Editorial Galerna, 1987).

This can be subdivided in the following manner: 1) deixis originating from the discourse or enunciative deixis, 2) spatial deixis, 3) temporal deixis, 4) social deixis, 5) demonstrative deixis. 63 1) Enunciative Deixis This type of discourse is central to theatre discourse, for all discursive activity is articulated from the deictics I/you which imply the integration of all the rest of the deixis involved in understanding the utterances. This inter-relationship is always performative: when a character says: "I swear", he/she performs both a locutory act and an illocutory act.
