BAUERNTHEATER by David Levine.
In BAUERNTHEATER (“farmers’ theater”), an American method actor, who knows no German, has trained to play the role of a farmer in a German play.
After a month’s rehearsal in a New York studio, he was flown to the Biorama-Projekt Center in Brandenburg, Germany. There he was given two acres of land, and asked to be "in character" for 14 hours a day, for a month.
BAUERNTHEATER is concerned with global labor markets, with the perfomance of cultural tradition, with the representation of labor, with representation as labor, and with the troubled relationship of Endurance and Land Art to questions of "authenticity".
