Genco Erkal’s new play I am Bertolt Brecht is an adaptation by the veteran actor from the great playwright’s poems, songs and stories. “Let this be Brecht’s comeback!” says Erkal and hails the return of the playwright who brings consciousness, widens one’s horizons, provokes with the questions he poses and seduces his audience. Genco Erkal shares the stage with actress Tülay Günal in a play that offers a journey on issues like the world order, position of women in the society and war. The play is to be accompanied live by pianist Yiğit Özatalay with pieces from Kurt Weill, Hans Eissler, Paul Dessau and Sarper Özsan
