The German-speaking world has a history of democracy undermined by totalitarianism and fascism. German and Austrian societies still include far-right parties. Even Switzerland, despite its direct democracy, is currently shaped by rising far-right populism. Performance in the German-speaking world has played a crucial role resisting anti-democratic tendencies post-1945. In this class, we will focus on performances that were staged as interventions against totalitarianism and that additionally promote transcultural community-building.
