Barlach, Ernst

Barlach, Ernst
   Playwright, sculptor. Barlach is best known in the German theater as a playwright associated with the Expressionist movement in the early 1920s. His plays were often mystical, usually featuring tortured characters with intense longings left unfulfilled. Jürgen Fehling was the director most closely associated with Barlach, largely because both men shared what they perceived to be a North German sensibility; Fehling directed most Barlach premieres, usually at the Berlin State Theater. Joseph Goebbels admired Barlach's sculptures and had a substantial collection until Hitler condemned them. The Nazi regime did not ban Barlach's plays outright, but they were not produced during the Third Reich. A "Barlach revival" took place in Berlin during the late 1950s, with several productions staged at the Schiller Theater.
