Abstract: The Passion Play of Oberammergau is arguably the most famous amateur theater tradition in the world, attracting a half-million spectators to this Bavarian alpine village every ten years. Indeed, the appeal of the play lies in its very status as lay theater: visitors flock to the village not just to witness a performance of the passion, but also to affirm the community’s dedication to a centuries-long tradition. To satisfy such an audience, the community’s role play behind the performance must be visible to outsiders. In addition to offering a general history of the play, the talk will explore the secondary performance frame of the “Oberammergau experience,” which shapes audience reception by representing the “real lives” of the performers. However, unscripted encounters with the play’s actors also reveal changing attitudes towards tradition.
