Berlin Summer Theater Intensive

Students study a variety of ‘methods’ of creation with Berlin-based artists and, under their guidance, make original theater work. Students also explore the historical and contemporary richness of Berlin’s theatrical culture with faculty from Bard College Berlin.
The work in the studio will be organized around a series of distinct themes:
1: Space
2: Text and Composition
3: Body and Movement/Choreography
4: Sound and Image

The program provides 33 hours a week of instruction, master classes/workshops, and lectures (132 hours over the 4 weeks of the program). There are also guided rehearsals, showings, and feedback time each week. The students attend theater and other performances 2 or 3 times each week as well as other cultural offerings such as museum visits, art gallery visits, and architectural and historical walking tours of the city.
Students become familiar with the theoretical writing of lecturers (Hans-Thies Lehmann’s Postdramatic Theater), writings on the work of faculty members (Rimini Protokoll, Gob Squad, Robyn Orlin etc.), as well as the work of directors whose work we will see (Frank Castorf, Rene Pollesch, Thomas Ostermaier etc.).
