In ‘Revivals of Choric Theatre as Utopian Visions’, Erika Fischer-Lichte traces the changing attitudes towards the chorus in the German-speaking world with reference to the relationship between social utopias and choric theatre. Beginning with Max Reinhardt’s Theatre of Five Thousand, the chapter then examines the 1990s choric revival through a case study of the work of Einar Schleef set against the background of debates about participatory democracy. The chapter concludes with the radical choric theatre of Theatercombinat, which consists of a chorus alone and no protagonists.
