Reading Butler: speculations on the limitations of Brecht

 

The focus of this article is on integrating the contributions made by Butler’s work to an understanding and expansion of performance and, in particular, what is called the Brechtian method. The following was written between 2008 and 2010 as part of my first thesis and rather than develop a purely theoretical formulation of any…

The Theatre and Focusing a double Process

I was born and raised in Germany where I studied music and dramatic arts. I worked for many years as a theatre director in Germany, but in 1994 I followed an inner impulse and moved to Athens, Greece. I now work in Greece as a theatre director and acting teacher at several drama schools.

I have always considered Greece the birthplace of western theatre, and Athens seemed like the right place to research the universal theatrical language and perhaps to discover the secrets behind the…

Meeting philosopher performers at Berlin

Hello everyone,

while i'm waiting for my PhD defense, I decided to move to Berlin (11th of June) and start a new life.

I'm trying to develop further the problem questioned on my PhD for a post-doc fellowship, but for most important is to be close to people working on performance philosophy. So, please get in touch…
