can we construct

epic theatre for the information age?

with my mother i saw the mother courage.

i studied brecht on the streets of the three penny city.

as a youth i saw brecht performed sadly at the berlin ensemble,

but with cheap east german cigarettes and cocktails that mattered little.

with expensive west german promotion brecht was commodified for his anniversary

in east germany vietnamese cigarette dealers were arrested by the police

alexanderplatz is being filled with shops for the new consumer

and marx and engels are snapped up by tourists

in front of the planned new palace

we need an new epic theatre

we can constuct it
