Epic Theater An epic is a theatrical form that emerged in the 1920s, associated with Bertolt Brecht. Brecht sought to distance (alienate) spectators emotionally by writing episodic scenes interrupted by songs and other devices, so the audience would watch objectively and judge what it saw. Ultimately Brecht hoped his audience would relate what they saw in the theatre to conditions in society and would seek to alter the sociopolitical system. Brecht called this theatre "epic" because the alternation of dialogue and narration, with its frequent shifts in time and place, had more in common with epic poetry than with traditional drama.
