Burjesta Workshop – Brecht, Marx & Dialectical Theatre, Wed 29th Aug

7pm @ The Casa, Hope St, L’pool

We continue our series of workshops looking at the work and influence of Bertolt Brecht on modern theatre practice.

This week we continue to look at the acting style that Brecht proposed known as the ‘alienation effect’ with exercises and devised work as well as looking at some of the key concepts that informed Brecht’s political world-view. We’ll be looking at ‘dialectics’, as espoused by 19th century German philosopher Georg Hegel and as Karl Marx developed it as ‘dialectical materialism’.

All welcome from beginner to experienced actor – no prior knowledge of Brecht or ‘dialectics’ required…
