Burjesta Workshop – Superstructure & The Matrix ‘Brecht, Marx and Dialectical Theatre’  Wed, 24th Oct, 6pm

@ The Casa, Hope St, L’pool

*Please note the earlier start time of 6pm.

This week we look at a key concept of Marxism, ‘base and superstructure’ and its relevance to Brechtian theatre. We’ll delve into it more by looking at extracts from ‘The Matrix’, the cyberpunk film from the Wachowskis, which exposes elements of ‘superstructure’ in a populist manner.

As this is the final workshop of the series we’ll finish with an overview of Brecht’s theatre, his plays and his theoretical writings asking what influence he has had on modern theatre practice.

All welcome beginner or experienced – £3/£2
