Bertolt Brecht

Available

Description

Bertolt Brecht's methods of collective experimentation, and his unique framing of the theatrical event as a forum for change, placed him among the most important contributors to the theory and practice of theatre. His work continues to have a significant impact on performance practitioners, critics and teachers alike. Now revised and reissued, this book combines:

  • an overview of the key periods in Brecht's life and work
  • a clear explanation of his key theories, including the renowned ideas of Gestus and Verfremdung
  • an account of his groundbreaking 1954 production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle
  • an in-depth analysis of his practical exercises and rehearsal methods.

As a first step towards critical understanding, and as an initial exploration before going on to further, primary research, Routledge Performance Practitioners are an invaluable resource for students and scholars.
