Christine Korte

Christine KorteChristine Korte is a third year PhD student in the Department of Communication and Culture. Her dissertation research, entitled “The Politicization of Digital Aesthetics on the Contemporary German Stage” examines the way both the aesthetics of theatre and audience reception are changing due to new technologies. She is interested in the implications these changes have for political theatre in Europe, in particular Germany. These concerns demand a re-tracing of a continuum of directors invested in politics and technology on the German stage from Erwin Piscator and Bertolt Brecht to current practitioners such as Rimini Protokoll. Especially interesting is how digitized productions are “staging” globalization and changing our conceptualization of what constitutes theatre and spectatorship.
