DR/CU 342 - Vienna Theater II

This course introduces students to Vienna’s lively theatrical culture and its century-old tradition. The approach is two-fold: The reading of selected dramatic texts in the German original is complemented by attending performances of these plays in the city’s most famous venues. Students develop techniques for accessing even complex and/or historically remote works, they experience contemporary performance practice first-hand, and gain fluency in discussing the politics of theater in 21st century society.
