The first time Masha Qrella heard of Thomas Brasch was in Marion Brasch’s novel »Ab jetzt ist Ruhe«. The author’s personal perspective seemed familiar: a family story of GDR nomenclature from the little sister’s point of view. She started reading the work of Thomas Brasch – German-language texts that got stuck in her head. Qrella, whose previous songs were in English, spontaneously began singing lines of his texts to melodies she’d come up with. In December 2019, Qrella, in a co-production with HAU Hebbel am Ufer and WUK Wien, funded by Haupstadtkulturfonds and the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe, will present a work that hovers between concert, performance and exhibition space, bringing the themes of the author into the world of today. At Pop-Kultur, she will give a first look at her ongoing interpretation of Thomas Brasch’s poetry.
