Coriolanus in Deutschland

Coriolanus in Deutschland $22.99

Steven Berkoff

Published by AmberLane Press

Steven Berkoff's journal of directing Coriolanus in Germany makes fascinating reading as one of Britain's most controversial figures of the theatre unfolds the agonies and pleasures of creating Shakespeare in German with a group of German actors. It's a day-by-day account with many 'asides' about the structure and traditions of the German theatrical establishment, contemporary attitudes of its practitioners, and some wry observations on Bavarian life

No-one who has seen a Berkoff production, play or performance will be entirely unmoved by the experience, and the sensation is no less in reading this very personal diary of events, since it is written with the candour and forthrightness that characterises so much of his work. His productions are best known for their fusing of the many elements in theatre and strong physical imagery. The production of Coriolanus is here described in great detail and is a valuable guide to the mind of Berkoff, which can never be less than interesting
