Ballad of poor Bertolt Brecht is the work that the actor Alexis Diaz de Villegas is preparing these days and will be released next Friday 16, in the Adolfo Llauradó Salon.
Composed of a series of scenes, poems and songs of the great German playwright and poet, the piece originates from the work The beggar or the dead dog, that weaves all the dramatic structure and is the centrepiece of the set.
Diaz de Villegas told Juventud Rebelde that while working in the ISA as a lecturer, he developed, with his students, a study of the work of Brecht and much of what was analysed and incorporated during that time is now part of the rereading.
This suggestive ballad is based, for its staging on the live music of a piano and the polyphony of ten actors on stage.
The stage production speaks of the ephemeral nature of life and therefore ephemeral theatre; while it takes as the centre of its discourse man and his reality.
