Description

The most definitive, comprehensive study of the origins, development, achievements and ultimate destruction of the performing arts in Germany from World War I through the rise of Hitler, "" The Theatre of the Weimar Republic "" is an invaluable record of creativity born out of conflict. John Willett focuses on the intellectual and sociocultural factors that brought Weimar theatre to its peak and analyses the theatrical theories and movements of the era. In addition, he includes a unique section of appendices, spanning 1916 to 1945, supplementing the text and providing detailed information on theatres, actors, performances, films, and radio and gramophone recordings. The theatre during this period was marked by bold, innovative playwrighting and directing as well as by important advances in theatrical architecture, lighting, and stage design. Renowned talents such as Brecht, Piscator, Toller, and Weill were nurtured, and influential movements and credos -- including Expressionism, agitprop, and Bauhaus theatre projects -- developed. A rigorous, fascinating assessment of the world-wide influences of Weimar theatre during its lifetime and in later years, the book will appeal to all readers interested in the art and politics of this turbulent period.
