things are changeable:bertolt brecht

As Hans-Thies Lehmann and Tore Vagn Lid meet during Ultima Academy to discuss political possibilities within music theater, it is inevitable to think about Bertolt Brecht´s dialectical theater. In "Brecht on Stage", a documentary made by the BBC, we hear testimonies by Brecht´s wife, Helena Weigel, and other actors and scholars that worked closely with the German director.  Among the most interesting topics is how Brecht understood the relationship between the characters of the play and the audience, as well as the way in which he asked actor to work with text within rehearsal situations.
