GRMN 306 - From Page to Stage

Fall (3) Gully Prerequisite(s): GRMN 207  or consent of instructor

In this course, we will read a handful of "classic" plays from German literary history, research the numerous and often controversial productions that these plays see even today, and realize how large of a presence the theater has occupied, and continues to occupy, in German cultural life and national identity. Careful analysis of historical context, dramaturgy, and the most important historical performances of the plays. An important component of this class will be your own performances and video tapings of select scenes, where alongside your analysis you will also hone your speaking and pronunciation skills. Authors may include Lessing, Goethe, Schiller, Kleist, Büchner, Wedekind, Schnitzler, von Horvath, Bauer, Bernhard. Conducted in German.
