Dear all, As we seem to fly through our discussions, I keep forgetting to ask everyone who has mentioned a special "source" (a book, an author, an article, a film) that they have found relevant to the discussion and/or their research, to please post these sources to the blog.

Ideas for 3 Penny and Brecht

Dear All: Please bring your play text to class.

What is epic theatre?

For Monday's 3 penny opera: I am sending a strange pdf . This is the article in Illuminations by Benjamin. I will try to attach it here. My husband made the pdf for me at his office, so he did it one page at a time...and it is slightly out of focus. Sigh. so much for beggar's operatics.

Wanted: three penny opera "volunteers"

Dear Group, I would like to ask a few of you to volunteer for a live reading of a tiny section of The Three Penny Opera on Monday. If I could meet with you for a minute during our soiree on Thursday after seminar that would be great! I also would suggest if you have any extra time: to look at the chapter in our Benjamin book, "What is Epic theatre?" or catch some Beijing opera on youtube. best katherine
