Primary Instructor:

In this course, students will read several modern German plays and will become familiar with the 20th century German theater that grew out of the Cabaret tradition. In addition to reading 6-7 plays, students will read several of Brecht’s writings about epic theater, do scene work using Brecht’s “Lehrstueck” model, and will ultimately participate as technical crew and actors in a multi-media play production of RC “Deutsches Theater” in March/April. In addition to participating in all rehearsals and the final performances, students will be required to give one oral “Referat” on a topic relevant to course readings and to keep a course portfolio containing reflections on readings and scene work, original sketches and materials collected for possible inclusion in the production. Students may travel at their own expense with the course instructor to Munich over Spring Break to see theater productions. RC German readings is a pre-requisite for this course, but some students who have not had German Readings may be eligible to participate with permission of the instructor. Students who have participated in RC “Deutsches Theater” in the past are welcome to enroll in the course again.
