Bertolt Brecht : Practice Pieces for Shakespeare( Visual )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This program presents two of Brecht's Practice Pieces for Actors: Romeo and Juliet translated by George Tabori and Hamlet translated by Michael Lebeck. (These pieces are virtually unknown to students and are never performed.) With such performers as Lotte Lenya, Micki Grant, David Rounds, Rudolph Weiss, Oliver Clark, Roscoe Lee Browne, the program shows these dramatic scenes that Brecht wrote and had his own actors rehearse as preparation for full-length productions of the corresponding Shakespeare plays. The scenes reduce the "heroic" stature of the Shakespearean characters by showing them as ordinary people with the usual needs and vices, living in a world where economics is inevitably more influential than principle. The idea, in Socialist East Germany where Brecht lived and worked, was that the actors' own egos would be deflated by these scenes, and the result would be a more "human" portrayal. The scenes were therefore rehearsed but then omitted from actual performance of the full play
Damien : the story of Emil Sinclair's youth by Hermann Hesse( Book )

1 edition published in 1959 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Bertolt Brecht : practice pieces, 1964( Visual )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A performance, in English translation, of two of Bertolt Brecht's largely unknown and seldom performed "Ubungstücke für Schauspieler" -- "Practice pieces for actors" which he wrote to train actors in his own method for doing classical drama. These scenes were meant to be vigorously rehearsed, but then omitted when the play was presented. The idea was to oblige the actors to embody their characters' human weaknesses. Brecht felt this would undercut any tendancy to adopt a "heroic" interpretation of the characters portrayed. This video contains the scenes for "Romeo and Juliet" and "Hamlet"
