Beyond Drama: 13 performers try to transform the audience
Start Date: 4/23/2013Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 4/23/2013End Time: 8:15 PM

Event Description:
What role can the theater play in an omnipresent media and consumer culture that is always already saturated with “drama,” from cinema to television to news infotainment to the daily individual drama of social networking sites? And to what extent can live theater resist the narratives of popular media and offer alternative modes of perception and reflection? On Tuesday, April 23rd in Wells Fargo auditorium, the students of German 468 will address these questions and explore the potential of theater beyond drama in a live performance in German. In mix between revue and happening, the Künstlerkollektiv(artist collective) 468 will take its audience on a journey through 20th century German experimental theater and performance traditions, from Brecht to Dadaism to neo-avant-gardes to the postdramatic theater of today. Admission is free; aesthetic transformation is priceless! Achtung! Sie sind das Thema! Sie sind das Ereignis! Warning! You are the topic! You are the event!
