Theatre and performance
cultural history, modernism
My research primarily focuses on the significance of Henrik Ibsen’s work for the development of an avant-garde theatre-going culture in Europe. Hence, my current project traces the engagement with Ibsen’s work throughout the cultural spheres of late nineteenth-century Berlin and beyond. My aim is to demonstrate the significance of theatre-going and theatre criticism for the development of modern thought and illustrate the diversity of cultural developments within those hidden spheres of cultural exchange.
