Faculty Mentor

Abstract

I plan to study the technique of Bertolt Brecht and how his directing style has changed through the years. I will compare his directing style and directing manifesto to the current use of Brechtian style from college students, specifically me. My directing project this year will employ the use of Brechtian technique, but shifted to make it more accessible to the audience. I plan on doing a study of Brecht's life and how his young adult life and circumstances growing up in Germany and the culture in which he grew up in also affected his style, studying his actual style through the years he was directing, and how I plan on using his work in my directing piece. I hope to show how older styles of directing and acting techniques can be molded to be more accessible in modern times.
