In the second part of our thesis we study the question of language reception, indispensable for the understanding of the Dada phenomenon in particular and theatrical in general. The aleatory vocality La Premiere Aventure Celeste de Monsieur Antipyrine provoked a violent reception by the historical spectator of 1920, whose esthetic parameters (horizon of expectation) are analyzed. Insofar as Coeur a Gaz is concerned the performance of 1923 consecrated the rupture of Andre Breton with the Dada group and led to the birth of the surrealist movement. Finally, the revolutionary scenographic work of Mouchoir de Nuages radically modifies the scenic perception of the spectator and announces the pluralist art of the twentieth century.
