DR/CU 341 - Vienna Theater I

This course provides students with elementary knowledge about academic treatment of theatrical texts, both from the perspective of literature and drama, in a practical form, and further familiarizes students with Viennese theater life. The students’ understanding of theater texts in German, both classical and modern, and of modern performance practice is enhanced. Part of the class is organized in form of a workshop. In varying functions (acting, directing), students study, prepare, and then perform one or two short theatrical scenes towards the end of the semester. A positive side effect of the course is an improvement of the students’ German language skills.
