Vom Lachen über die Welt zum Leben mit der Welt - Lieder und Gedichte von Bertolt Brecht mit Ekkehard Schall (LITERA 1984)


"When you see Schall at work during his two-hour performance, it's as if you were watching Brecht himself on stage.Schall's technical skills embody all of Brechtian dramatic theory and practice, just as Brecht's thoughts and opinions infuse his performances. " - New York City Tribune

Ekkehard Schall was Bertolt Brecht's son-in-law and one of the most important Brechtian actors in Germany.

A member of the Berliner Ensemble established by Bertolt Brecht and his wife Helene Weigel in 1949, Ekkehard Schall worked on numerous productions of Brecht's plays and others with the Ensemble between 1952 and 1995. In the 1970s and 80s he combined the roles of leading actor and deputy director of the Ensemble. In all he played over sixty roles and achieved greatest success in the role as Arturo Ui, a role he played over 500 times.

He was married to Brecht's daughter Barbara Brecht-Schall and is the father of actress Johanna Schall.
