"Denn für dieses Leben ist der Mensch nicht gut genug." - Brecht-Revue
Songs and texts about survival in the city

Es war einmal ein Schwein
Das hatte nur ein Bein.
Einmal war es in Eil
Da rutschte es auf dem Hinterteil
Ins Veilchenbeet hinein:
Es war ein rechtes Schwein.

Brecht: Kleine Lieder für Steff

Singers Julie Comparini, Evelyn Gramel, and Manja Stephan with the Bremer Kaffeehaus-Orchester perform compositions by Paul Dessau, Hanns Eisler and Kurt Weill.
Directed by: Peter Schenk, Arbeitnehmerkammer

Bertolt Brecht was one of the most influential German poets and playwrights of the 20th century. Collaborative projects with musicians and composers were an integral part of his work. Many of Brecht's texts question the role of the individual in society. What is a person worth? From what source do people draw their sense of self-worth? What happens in a society where people's worth goes unrecognized? "Auf ein Wort" features song settings by Hanns Eisler and Paul Dessau on these and related themes.

The postwar years were a period of economic and social mobility. Radio and television broadcasts brought music from around the world into German homes and new technologies made it possible to travel around the world in style. And so the German "Nachkriegsschlager" -- and the German tourist -- were born.

Bremerhaven became not only a port of exit for transatlantic passage, but a tourist destination -- which it still aims to be today.

Fernweh Bremerhaven explores Bremerhaven's past and present role as a tourist destination in interviews, discussions, and a musical journey through the "wonder years."
