Abstract:

The only institution of its kind in Switzerland, the Swiss Theatre Collection (STC), comprising a museum, library and archive department, has the task of recording all aspects of the Swiss theatre. The diversity of socio-cultural conditions in Switzerland is similarly reflected in the different structures of its theatres, making this a challenging task which is often difficult to fulfil. The author received his Ph.D. from the University of Vienna with a thesis entitled ‘Theatre and Technique. An Analysis of their Interrelation in the Light of Cultural Phenomenology’. In 1972 he was named resident playwright at the Municipal Theatre of Bern and in 1976, playwright in chief at the Schlosstheater Celle (Germany). He has been director of the STC since 1979 and was appointed professor honoris causa in 1993 by the Cantonal Council of Bern.
