RELATED LECTURES



Sommersemester 2021

VO: Performance Cultures
(Unterrichtssprache: Englisch)

This Lecture Course explores the fascinating wealth of performances, ranging from spoken theatre, music theatre and opera to contemporary, puppet theatre, street theatre, video opera and emerging hybrid forms often straddling the boundaries between art theatre and political activism. This lecture series acquaints students with the immense variety of performance across cultures and periods and inquires into the aesthetic, historical, critical and practical dimensions of performances, ranging from ancient uses of masks to modern puppetry, from liturgical contexts of theatre to site-specific productions of the 21st century, from real-time projection to digital arts, animatronics and installations. We shall discuss categories of body, space and time in connection with particular productions and discuss aspects of performativity, theatricality and theatricalisation. To this end a range of approaches (cultural production studies, theatre semiotics, phenomenology and cognitive studies) will be discussed, inter alia focusing on proxemics, sets, costumes and designs, on the relationships between objects, stage space and audience space, and between theatricality and paratheatricality. Practitioners will gain a voice, while theatre and festival visits will provide the context for critically engaging with performances (Covid-19 permitting).

Sommersemester 2020

VO: (Music-) Theatre Production
(Unterrichtssprache: Englisch)

This Lecture Course explores the fascinating field of theatre (including Spoken Theatre, Music Theatre and Opera, as well as Contemporary). It inquires into the aesthetic, historical, critical and practical dimensions of theatre productions. It acquaints students with the immense variety of forms from the Middle Ages to the Present and discusses a range of approaches from theatre semiotics, phenomenology and cognitive studies. A major focus of this lecture course will lie on the shift from drama and performance studies to production studies, ranging from ancient uses of masks to modern puppet theatre, from the beginnings of opera to contemporary music theatre and from liturgical contexts of theatre to site-specific productions of the 21st century. These are particularly intriguing issues in the light of present-day operas, concerned with political issues and directors’ exploration of new artistic formats from real-time projection to digital arts, animatronics and spectacular installations. For this purpose we shall discuss and compare productions, give practitioners a voice in the course and visit current performances. Central questions in this move from theory to practice are: How is a play/an opera/a musical mounted? What artistic processes and creative talent are involved? What considerations regarding the spatial, temporal, social and economic frameworks are necessary for a production to happen? How does (music-)theatre meet the audience?
