“I began by making collages on David’s snooker table. The whole table was covered in pictures and paper cuttings. The words to the Brasch play soon became images. After spending a month working on the collage, I was sitting with Thomas in his apartment. Thomas looked at the collages and said: “I’ll tell Karge and Langhoff that if they find themselves unable to progress when staging the play, they should ask you what you think.”
In preparing for their Brasch evening “Morgen wird auch ein schöner Tag, sagte die Eintagsfliege” (Tomorrow will also be a beautiful day, said the mayfly, premiere: 18.2.2022), Tom Kühnel and Jürgen Kuttner came across Thomas Brasch’s work diary and Emine Sevgi Özdamar’s collages. Özdamar supported the production of “Lieber Georg” (Dear George) by Thomas Brasch at the Schauspiel Bochum theatre in collaboration with Thomas Langhoff and Manfred Karge. This theatrical work is also discussed in her most recent autobiographical novel, “A Space Bounded by Shadows”.
