Primary Instructor:

One of the longest and richest cultural traditions in Germany has been in Theater and Drama. In this course we will take a look at that tradition by reading texts about the history of German theater, excerpts from some well-known 18th- and 19th-century plays, and two 20th century plays: "Der gute Mensch von Sezuan" by Bertolt Brecht, and "Die Physiker" by Friedrich Dürrenmatt. In addition, we will "experience" the tradition first-hand by producing our own German language theater production — an evening of directed scenes. Through reading, writing, and theater activities in the classroom, students will develop the basic vocabulary of the theater in addition to other conversational vocabulary related to the texts, and focus on pronunciation and oral communication skills. Students will also learn basics of acting, directing, and theater production.
