The Good Soldier Schweik by Erwin Piscator
"Bertolt Brecht helped write the script and George Grosz's animated cartoons, life-size puppets, and cut-out set pieces appeared with live actors on the conveyor-belt stage." Here are seventeen drawings by George Grosz for a 1928 German performance of The Good Soldier Svejk.
