Practical Guide to Bertolt Brecht online CPD (streaming video)
A CPD session for teachers of drama and theatre practitioners. Join us back in the corner of the Splendid office (with a soundtrack of central-Lewisham police sirens) for a 72-minute edit of the live online session delivered by Splendid’s Artistic Director, Kerry Frampton in October 2020.
For nearly twenty years, Splendid Productions have been creating theatre in a structure pioneered by German dramatist and poet, Bertolt Brecht. In this online CPD session Kerry shares her insights into performing and teaching this style – interpreting techniques that are often characterised as complex, dogmatic and overly serious, and using them to create energetic, entertaining, provocative political theatre that speaks urgently to our present time.
The session includes:
- An exploration of key concepts
- Demystifying terminology including dialectics, montage, archetypes, gestus and verfremdungs
- Practical approaches to test out the theory
- Devising and creating Brecht-inspired work
- Three bonus Brechtian techniques not covered in GCSE and A-level
ABOUT SPLENDID STREAMING VIDEO
During the checkout you will create a user account and set a password (or log in to an existing account). After checkout you’ll be emailed a coupon. Applying the coupon will add this video to your account, and you can access it at any time during the rental period by logging into to your account.
For instant access, we recommend using the credit/debit card or Paypal options during checkout. You can choose the ‘pay with invoice’ option, but we will only email the access coupon when the invoice payment has been received – IF YOU REQUIRE INSTANT ACCESS PLEASE DO NOT CHOOSE THIS OPTION!
BUYING ACCESS FOR SOMEONE ELSE?
We’re aware that many institutions require finance offices to make payments. With any of the above options, during checkout you have the option to send the streaming video coupon to an alternative email. (For example, if you are a finance person arranging the rental for a teacher, just add their email address to the ‘send to someone else’ option.)
This email will be sent automatically when payment is made, so choose the credit/debit card or Paypal options for instant access. If you want to pay by PO/invoice you can choose the ‘pay with invoice’ option, but the coupon will only be sent to your requested email address once payment has been received, which may take some time.
APPLYING THE COUPON
The coupon will be sent to the email address specified. Click on the coupon and your browser will automatically open the streaming video page and apply the voucher, reducing the price of the ‘purchase’ to £0.00. You will then go through the checkout process once more to apply the coupon.
I’M ORDERING THIS FOR MYSELF, WHY DO I HAVE TO CHECK OUT TWICE?
Because access is applied using the coupon, the first checkout ‘buys’ the coupon and the second ‘applies’ it. If you are already logged into your account when you click on the coupon, this should only take a couple of extra clicks.
