The core part of the academic programme of the symposium will be the four sections with different historic, theoratical, regional and cultural perspectives that will be discussed in nine session panels within each section. Besides that, two reknown keynote speakers and six round tables with an international setup will intensify the discussion.
The titles of the four sections are:
- Brecht in Foreign Lands/Brecht the Foreigner. New Perspectives on Brecht’s Time as a Migrant and Theater Work ‚after Brecht‘ in the GDR and the FRG
- Theater among Strangers. Brecht’s Concept of a Transcultural Theater and Its Continuation in the Theater of Migration Societies
- Foreign affairs in a global world. Artistic Practices after Brecht in Regional and Social Combustion Points Worldwide
- Strangers Acting/Acting Strange. Theater Work with Nonprofessional Actors ‚after Brecht‘
