(1.) ” PEOPLE REMAIN WHAT THEY
ARE EVEN IF THEIR FACES FALL
APART. ”

(2.) ” TEMPTATION TO BEHAVE IS
TERRIBLE. ”

(3.) ” RIGHT IS ITS OWN DEFENSE. ”

(4.) ” NO ONE CAN BE GOOD FOR
LONG IF GOODNESS IS NOT IN
DEMAND. ”

(5.) ” WAR IS LIKE LOVE ; IT
ALWAYS FINDS A WAY. ”

Bertolt Brecht.

BERTOLT BRECHT WAS A GERMAN
PLAYWRIGHT WHOSE OWN
THEATER COMPANY- ‘BIRLINER
ENSEMBLE’ USED TO TOUR EUROPE
AND AMERICA IN ORDER TO STAGE
PLAYS THAT WERE TOTALLY
RADICAL IN THEIR ORIENTATIONS
AND TO HIGHLIGHT HIS NEWLY
INVENTED DRAMA-FORM CALLED
‘EPIC THEATER’ THAT EMPHASIZED
ON THE REPRESENTATIONS OF
REALITIES ON STAGE N EXPECTED
FOR A PARTICIPANT-AUDIENCES
THAN THE USUAL
SPECTATORS.

BRECHT’S DRAMAS
LIKE ‘GALILEO’S LIFE’ , ‘MOTHER
COURAGE AND HER CHILDREN’, ‘THE
RISE N FALL OF THE CITY OF
MAHOGANNY’ N OTHERS HAD
REVOLUTIONIZED THE THEATER-
WORLD FOR ONCE N FOR ALL!

THE
SUDDEN INTERRUPTION THROUGH
THE USE OF MUSIC N THEN
PAUSE,THE HARSH LIGHTENING ON
STAGE,THE BOXERS-RING LIKE
STAGE ELEVATION,DIRECT ADDRESS
TO THE AUDIENCES WERE SOME OF
HIS UNIQUE INVENTIONS IN THE
WORLD OF DRAMA!

FOR BRECHT,A
DRAMA NEEDS TO BE
EXPERIMENTAL THAN MERELY AN
EXPRESSION.

BERTOLT BRECHT WAS ALSO THE
INVENTOR OF ‘COLLABORATIVE-
DRAMA’ N ALMOST DECRIED THE
HITHERTO PRACTICES OF
INDIVIDUAL DRAMA .

BRECHT’S WAS SORT OF ANTI-
ARISTOTELIAN AND DEEPLY
ROOTED IN MARXIST WAY OF
PERCEIVING THE WORLD AND
HENCE HE WANTED A PLAY TO BE A
LIVING ENTITY THAT KEEPS PACE
WITH THE CHANGING WORLD
AROUND AND NOT LIKE THE
CLASSICAL DRAMAS WHICH WERE
VERY MUCH STATIC.

BRECHT DIDN’T WISH LIKE THE
GREEK MASTERS THAT THE
AUDIENCE SHOULD GET KIND OF
CATHARSIS VIA AN ASSIMILATION
WITH THE DRAMA ON STAGE FOR
THE TIME BEING, INSTEAD,BRECHT
ADVOCATED FOR ,OF COURSE A
DEEP INVOLVEMENT,BUT, A
DETACHED ONE !

HIS PLAYS,AT TIMES,SEEM
EXCESSIVELY DIDACTIC AND THERE
HE BORES RATHER,GIVEN THE
CONTEMPORARY LITERARY
FRAMEWORKS THAT EMPHASIZE ON
AN HONEST PRESENTATION OF A
PROBLEM AND STRICTLY ABHORS
ANY DIRECT METHOD OF
PREACHING !

BERTOLT BRECHT DIED IN 1956 IN
EAST BERLIN,OF A HEART
ATTACK,AT THE AGE OF 58.

HIS INFLUENCE LINGERS ON AS
OUR SHADOWS DO TO US !

HAPPY BIRTHDAY,MASTER BRECHT !
