This course explores the German Kabarett, a dramatic form essential to German culture throughout the 20th Century. Very versatile, cabaret throughout Germany's history was at times didactic, subversive, raunchy, witty, extravagant and sharply critical. We examine cabaret's development in contexts ranging from Weimar and Vienna, to Nazi and Concentration Camp forms, to East and West German political cabaret, and contemporary forms, considering the institutions and figures that shaped cabaret over time.
