Program Description:
6 weeks, 6 credits

Each summer, a Lang instructor leads a course during a six-week summer session at the Freie Universität Berlin Summer (FUBiS). Professor Zishan Ugurlu will offer Berlin Kabarett, an acting course that introduces students to the research, writing, and performance techniques of solo performers. In German, the word Kabarett (“cabaret”) has two meanings. The first meaning is the same as in English: a form of entertainment featuring comedy, song, dance, and theater. The second meaning is a kind of political satire. Kabarett artists focus primarily on political and social topics, which they criticize using cynicism, sarcasm, and irony. At the time of German reunification in the 1980s, Kabarett experienced a minor boom in response to new social problems such as mass unemployment, privatization, and rapid changes in society. Students create a solo performance based on research using sources such as diaries, letters, memoirs, and autobiographies combined with field trips to notable Kabarett venues in the city. FUBiS also offers a variety of other classes that students can take at an additional expense.

Prerequisite: At least sophomore standing by the start of the program and 3.0 minimum GPA.
