AbstractThe present work deals with the mark and survival of Brecht’s dramaturgical options and systematization in the scenic poetics of stage director Thomas Ostermeier, especially in the field of the character’s creation. Ostermeier, crucially supported by Bertolt Brecht, developed his own method of directing actors and composing the character in the course of his stage creation, where the methodological approaches of Brecht, Stanislavsky and Sanford Meisner, among others, converged in a coherent dialogue. This evolution in the work with the actor becomes the essential pivot point of his staging, thus dragging him to a reconsideration of his stage poetics. In fact, this is an evolution incomprehensible without the knowledge of his ethical and aesthetic commitment to the performing arts. Where, once again, the undeniable mark of the Augsburg creator is perceived.
