Today in debate @ HAU in Berlin “Phantasm and politics” : Hans-Thies Lehmann tries to explain what theater should ‘do’ :

“Alt­hus­ser points out that human beings have  „constitutive-melodramatic consciousness”. They are antropocentric and tend to dramatize and personalize  social-economic structures and processes by which they in fact deny the reality of the processes themselves. Theater should, to his opinion aim at interrupting and deconstructing this very melodramatic consciousness.”
