Abstract:

With The Theatre of Thomas Ostermeier, the German director presents his directorial method for the first time. The book provides a toolkit for understanding and enacting the strategies of his advanced contemporary approach to staging dramatic texts. In addition, the book also includes: Ostermeier's seminal essays, lectures and manifestos translated into English for the first time. Over 140 photos from the archive of Arno Declair, who has documented Ostermeier's work at the Schaubühne Berlin for many years, and by others. In-depth 'casebook' studies of two of his productions: Ibsen's An Enemy of the People (2012) and Shakespeare's Richard III (2015). Contributions from Ostermeier's actors and his closest collaborators to show how his principles are put into practice. An extraordinary, richly illustrated insight into Ostermeier's working methods, this volume will be of interest to practitioners and scholars of contemporary European theatre alike. -- from back cover.
