German 364. German Theatre and Culture

This course will offer students the experience of observing the process of working on the production of a play by a professional theatre company in Freiburg, Germany. In collaboration with students and instructors in German theatre classes being conducted simultaneously at Colgate University, Lafayette College and Vassar, the class will interpret the play and develop a well-researched plan for its staging. In addition to viewing a tape of the performance and analyzing other materials (costume and set designs), students will have the chance to interview actors, designers and the director of the German production at the Theater Freiburg via video conferencing throughout the term.
