Abstract: In this work we propose to consider theatrical reception as aesthetic experience accessed collectively. For that, we discuss three main questions, which belong to methodological, epistemological and theoretical order. According to the methodological question, an objection is situated to the notion by idealist philosophy about aesthetic experience as homogeneous. Appropriation of spectacle’s sense may diverge along with two always present features: biography of spectator and stage-room relation. Around epistemological question, we postulate the difficulty for determine a priori the content of aesthetic experience, which is based on collective action adjudicated to stage-gallery relation. Participation of spectators in a certain spectacle entails an action whose senses interchange in an unpredictable way with the senses proposed from the stage. By that reason, the content of aesthetic experience only can be known in the frame of a specific concretization, exposed by the same spectator. From those considerations, we reformulate the theoretical question by which are dissociated the aesthetic experience and everyday life. Both the expressive elements used in theater and the collective action condition of the stage-gallery relation have no quotidian properties, which become a challenge to spectator’s previous dispositions. The aesthetic experience involves surpassing the mentioned challenge and its content depends upon kind of concretization asked the spectators in an interview. With these remarks, empirical researches are viable if they are grasped as linguistic games in which researchers and spectators verbalize the aesthetic experience promoted by a certain spectacle. Answers recollected in such interviews consist in concretizations asked to spectators. Afterward, a comparative analysis will allow setting up both the content of aesthetic experience and (if it is the case) some equivalence among the aesthetic experience of a set of spectators, according to the problematic question of which it treats and to data obtained in every field study.
