Description

This book examines the history of the Freie Volksbuhne (Free People’s Theatre) in Berlin, from 1890-1914, in the light of the cultural theory and practice of German Social Democracy in Imperial Germany. The clash between German Social Democracy – the Party, intellectuals and workers – and the German Imperial State was played out in the Freie Volksbahne (Free People’s Theatre) founded by intellectuals to energise working-class political awareness of drama with a political and social cutting edge. It fell foul of state censorship, lost its bite, yet prospered. This book explores the various programmes guiding the Volksbuhne’s work and examines the reception of the plays by the largely working-class audience. This book offers a detailed study of the interactions between cultural and political history in Imperial Germany. show more
