Brecht Through Practice by Jeni Whittaker
Brecht Through Practice
- Comprises a full term’s work, with suggestions as to how to take the work further;
- Contains separate sections with clear explanations, interspersed with a number of practical exercises designed to test or prove the theories. No section or theory is without practical exploration.
- Contains in its introductions reminders or ‘hooks’ from which the theories hang, so that teachers can state briefly at the start of the course what the practitioner stands for and the recognisable features of his style. All these features are then explored in greater detail, through practical work, in a logical order for study and with a view to clarifying and demystifying the practitioner’s own theories.
- Applies the theories to a number of texts.
