Rehearsal, Performance, Dramaturgy – Bernd Stegemann about the Craft of Drama

Here's a short interview with Bernd Stegemann, former dramaturg for the Deutsche Theater in Berlin, who is currently Professor for Theater History and Dramaturgy at the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts and head dramaturg at the Berlin Schaubühne.
I especially liked his opinion of the dramaturg's role during rehearsals. It is a strong opinion, yet I think also a justified one. I liked his general "acting suggestions" section and how a dramaturg reads a play on two levels to gain better insight on how to approach dramatizing characters and working with the actors who play them.
