Audio: Brecht discussion

To coincide with our production of A Life of Galileo, and in collaboration with the Goethe Institute in London, we hosted a 'Brecht Meeting' of British and German theatre makers in March 2013.

Chaired by Mark Ravenhill, we explored the relevance (if any) that Brecht has for us as contemporary theatre makers, asking:

  • Has Brecht now become a familiar 'classic', who can be produced in the same way that we might play Shakespeare or Schiller?
  • Does he still present challenges that allow us to ask important questions in the making of new theatre?
  • Should we bury his work and move on as though he never happened?
