Course Description: This course introduces students to the history of German theater. With the multiplicity of state and city-run theaters, German theater presents an international exception. Students gain an insight into the role that theater in Germany has played in influencing international trends and in further exemplifying trends within Germany. The course first explores the rich history presented by such theaters as the Volksb├╝hne, Deutsches Theater, Berliner Ensemble, and Schaub├╝hne, each of which is known for its specific and quite individual style. Then the course moves on to discuss the dramaturgical concepts and individual plays for which these theaters are known. In the second half of the semester the course moves on to handle some key contemporary German works. Three class visits to the theater in Berlin help to give students a practical view into the theories discussed in lecture.
