Glut unter der Asche

In the organizer's words:

Embers under the ashes - songs and ballads by Bertolt Brecht - on March 16, 2024 - Schauspielhaus, Kleines Haus

The eight students of the Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus perform songs and ballads by Bertolt Brecht without any proletarian garb and following only their own sense of the present. The texts date from the time between the world wars and sing about the never-ending crisis of the market economy. Brecht takes an equally fearless view of war and being a stranger in exile. And this is perhaps the utopian power of this poetry, which is still able to cast a spell over us today: it does not suppress or gloss over anything, but praises failure at the top of its lungs.
