A seminal theatre practitioner of the twentieth century, Brecht made equally significant contributions to dramaturgy and theatrical production, the latter particularly through the seismic impact of the tours undertaken by the Berliner Ensemble—the post-war theatre company operated by Brecht and his wife and long-time collaborator, the actress Helene Weigel—with its internationally acclaimed productions.

From his late twenties Brecht remained a life-long committed Marxist who, in developing the combined theory and practice of his 'epic theatre', synthesized and extended the experiments of Piscator and Meyerhold to explore the theatre as a forum for political ideas and the creation of a critical aesthetics of dialectical materialism.

Brecht's modernist concern with drama-as-a-medium led to his refinement of the 'epic form' of the drama which constitutes that medium's rendering of 'autonomization' or the 'non-organic work of art'—related in kind to the strategy of divergent chapters in Joyce's novel Ulysses , to Eisenstein's evolution of a constructivist 'montage' in the cinema, and to Picasso's introduction of cubist 'collage' in the visual arts.

In contrast to many other avant-garde approaches, however, Brecht had no desire to destroy art as an institution; rather, he hoped to 're-function' the apparatus of theatrical production to a new social use. Brechtian theatre articulated popular themes and forms with avant-garde formal experimentation to create a modernist realism that stood in sharp contrast both to its psychological and socialist varieties. This 'Brecht' was a collective subject that "certainly seemed to have a distinctive style the one we now call 'Brechtian' but was no longer personal in the bourgeois or individualistic sense.

A Short Organum for the Theatre

Brecht detested Aristotelian drama; he believed that when this drama produced feelings of terror and catharsis then it prevented audience from thinking. This theatre would offer models of life that would help the audience to understand social environment. The audience must be reminded that it is a play. Theatre makes lives representations of reported or invented happenings between human beings with a view of entertainment. Pleasure is the noblest function for theatre.

139 Brecht A Short Organum For The Theatre

Returning in the history of theater to the Poetics of Aristotle and taking as an example ancient tragedies and comedies, he rejects the idea of catharsis : "What liberation is this, given that at the end of all these plays, which worked happily only because of the spirit of their time providence - the moral order , we live a dream-like execution that punishes exaltation as much as debaucheries? He attacks the core of the Poetics , that is, the finality of the tragedy. The critique that he made of the Poetics would become the center of his own poetics and of "Epic Theater". He also points out that beyond purging souls, it would be a mistake for theater to try to reproduce the reality of its spectators exactly on stage. He did not believe this identification between the viewer and the dramatic character was acceptable to the needs of the modern stage. Instead, there should be a different kind of relationship between the protagonists and the spectators. This relationship, or rather, this phenomenon, he called Verfremdungseffekt in English, distancing or the alienation effect.
