*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
@ The Casa, Hope St, L’pool, 7pm
This week we look at Brecht’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy, ‘Coriolanus’ which deals with imperialism and class war, subjects of great importance to Brecht.
All welcome from beginner to experienced actor. Each session costs £3/£2
